I made this recipe in my regular oven since I don't have a bread machine. I mixed the starter, water, oil, honey and yeast in the bowl of my mixer and let it sit for about ten minutes to give the yeast a chance to activate. Then I added in the flours and the salt and mixed for a few minutes then kneaded it by hand for a few minutes. I let it rest for about an hour, punched it down and put it in a bread pan and let it rise for another 45 minutes. After that I baked it at 375 degrees for about 30-35 minutes. The bread had a wonderful subtle honey taste... would be good with some honey butter.

I made this recipe on my bread machine and in the oven, the result was awesome. I did modify a couple of ingredients and it still turned out wonderful. I modified the water to 3/4 cup, 3 tbsp. honey, 1 tsp. salt, 1 cup wheat flour, 2 tsp. rapid rise yeast and 3 spoonfuls of quick oats. The result is a great tasting, chewy, kinda sweet loaf of bread. It's great for french toast, grilled cheese, sandwiches, or just plain buttered. Michelle

I've been making bread for a while, but I am new to making sourdough. This was my third try and it is one of the best recipes EVER, not just among my sourdough tries. It slices perfectly. Not too crunchy, not too soft. Great recipe!! I am saving this one!

It took a while to rise because I used all purpose flour, but the end result is delicious! This is very easy to slice thinly without crumbling!

I make my bread mostly wheat, so I added 2 cups whole wheat with 1 cup bread flour. It started looking too dry so I added more olive oil & warm water. Finished on the counter & in oven. It's delish. Made some of the best toasted sandwich bread we've had. Thanks!

I made this manually and used a sourdough starter I had on hand. Bread is slightly chewy & has a good flavor but needs a tad more salt. I like the addition of honey to the sourdough but might use 1 T instead of 2 next time.

This bread is so good. I selected the dough cycle on my bread machine, then took it out, divided it into three equal balls to make smaller loaves for my family. Then I let it rise again for about an hour, and baked in the oven for 15 minutes. It turned out well, but I think next time I will try it without the additional yeast, because it ended up rising a lot. thanks for another great recipe to use with my starter:)

Fantastic bread with lots of flavour. The honey came out beautifully with the sourdough. Next time I am going to try it with molasses.
