1CupSourdough Starter- 230 milliliters - You need to add LIVE sourdough starter (not dry starter) to the bread pan. See the tips section for more info.
Settings - Basic Bread, Light Color & 2 lbs.
Unplug your bread machine.
Remove the bread pan from the bread machine (so when you add the ingredients, they can not accidentally spill into the machine).
Pour the water & oil into the bread pan first and then add the other ingredients (with the live sourdough starter being added last).
Put the bread pan with ingredients back into unplugged bread machine.
Plug in bread machine. Enter the correct settings (basic bread, light color & 2 lbs) and press the "start" button.
When the bread machine has finished baking the bread, unplug the bread machine.
Take out the bread pan and remove the bread from the bread pan. Place the bread on a cooling rack. Use oven mitts when removing the bread pan as it will be very hot!
After removing the bread, don’t forget to remove the mixing paddle if it is stuck in the bread. Use oven mitts as the mixing paddle will be very hot coming out of the bread machine. Or wait until the bread is completely cooled and then remove the mixing paddle.
