Day 2 in the Life of My Cuisinart - Rye Sourdough Bread
Posted Dec 01 2012 5:49pm
Wouldn’t be fun if I could post “30 days in the Life of My New Cuisinart”…On the second day of owning this fun new tool, I made 3 loaves of 100% Whole Grain Sourdough Bread. 3 days before making I took out my starter and started to feed it. What a happy active batch of starter. For complete recipe About 4 cups of starter. I added this to the large 14 cup bowl with dough blade. To 4 cups of starter I added 1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 light tasting olive oil and 1/2 cup sugar (not honey – honey has some antimicrobial action, and we don’t want to restrict the natural yeast). I added whole wheat flour….This is about 6 cups of dough…a bit heavy…but the machine did knead it quickly! I needed to stop and stir the “load”. Next time I might split the dough and knead separately. I want my machine to work for many years. If you do overload the machine, it has a safety that turns the motor off to protect it. One loaf for us, two for friends. Ted and I delivered.
