Sourdough Sandwich Bread

The sourdough craze is slowly dying down but not completely over. Everyone now has become better bakers and sourdough makers.

Sourdough Milk Buns

My two favorite breads all in one.  I love sourdough and I love milk bread. This recipe yields a soft and delicious bun that is great for sandwiches or as a dinner roll or just great as a snack. For this bread you need to start with a cooked roux.  You will need 1/4 cup…

For the Love of Sourdough: Take 1
