  1. In a small mixing bowl, dissolve yeast in warm water. Let stand until creamy, about 10 minutes.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine the yeast mixture with the Herman Starter, oil, 2 cups flour and salt; mix well. Add the remaining flour, 1/2 cup at a time, stirring after each addition. When the dough has pulled together, turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 8 minutes. Lightly oil a large bowl, place the dough in the bowl and turn to coat with oil. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise in a warm place until doubled in volume, about 1 hour.
  3. Lightly grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Deflate the dough and turn it out onto a lightly floured surface and form into a loaf. Place into the prepared pan. Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled in volume, about 40 minutes. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Bake in the preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the top of the loaf is golden brown and the bottom sounds hollow when tapped.

I wanted to add that many of these reviews are a function of two things: the condition and hydration of Herman. In order for your bread to rise, Herman must also rise. Bubbles alone don't ris...

I really liked this bread, the texture is very nice. But the recipe is missing flour. I ended up adding about 1 1/2 cups more. The instructions should say 'keep adding 1/2 cup of flour until i...

I already had a sourdough starter and I saw this recipe for white bread. I followed it with the exception of adding 3 tbs. sugar to it. I then worked only 1/2 of the remaining flour in and then...

I've made this bread several times now. It has a slightly sweet flavor to it. It's great toasted for breakfast. My husband and I can't get enough of it! Delicious and easy to make!

I love this bread, but love it even more as dinner rolls. Just divide dough in half then half again then thirds. Recipe makes 12 large rolls. I also cut down the salt to 1 tsp. It is also a g...
