Basic Sourdough Discard Sandwich Bread

sourdough discard sandwich bread recipe.This basic sourdough discard bread recipe makes great, "everyday" white bread for sandwiches.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 1/4 cups water
1/2 cup hot milk
1 (0.25-ounce) packet active dry yeast, or 2 1/4 teaspoons
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons granulated sugar
1/4 cup sourdough discard (unfed starter)
4 1/2 cups all-purpose or bread flour
2 teaspoons kosher or sea salt

Cooking Directions:

  1. Add the ingredients to bread machine pan in the order listed, or according to your bread machine manufacturer's directions.
  2. Select Basic White cycle, and if your machine requires, select the weight and desired color of crust; then press the Start button.
  3. When done, immediately remove bread from pan and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing.

Makes 1 (3-pound) loaf.

Tip: For a more uniform sandwich loaf, use the dough cycle of your bread machine. When the dough cycle is done, remove dough to a lightly floured surface and knead dough a few times to remove any air bubbles, then form into a loaf and place, seam-side-down, in a greased, 3-pound bread pan, cover and allow to rise in a warm spot until doubled in size. Score the top across the middle with a razor or very sharp knife and bake at 375°F (190°C) for 25 to 30 minutes, or until golden and loaf sounds hollow when tapped.
