Sourdough Bread

This proven recipe from Chef Shellie Froidevaux takes the guesswork out of baking a delicious sourdough loaf. Using the Panasonic SD-YR2550 or SD-R2530 Automatic Bread Maker to create the starter, knead and bake the final loaf, ensures the consistency required to guarantee a perfect loaf every time!


Sourdough Starter

  • 80 g wholemeal bread flour
  • ½ tsp salt
  • 60 g Greek yoghurt
  • 80 ml water
  • 0.1g dry yeast (using the sourdough starter spoon provided)


  • 1 cup Sourdough starter
  • 200 g wholemeal bread flour
  • 200 g white bread flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 150 ml water
  • ¾ tsp dry yeast


  • Begin with making the sourdough starter. Place all the ingredients into the sourdough cup provided. Mix thoroughly and place the lid on top. Place the cup into the bread pan in the bread machine and select program 23 (SD-YR2550) or program 22 (SD-R2530), Sourdough Starter, and press start.
  • When the starter is ready, empty the contents of the starter into the bread pan. Top with water, bread flours and salt and close the lid. Open the dispenser lid. Place the dry yeast in the Yeast Dispenser, and close the dispenser lid. (If using the SD-R2530, place the yeast in as the last ingredient).
  • Select program 13 (SD-YR2550) or program 12 (SD-R2530), Basic, and press start.
  • When the machine beeps 8 times, take the bread pan out of machine using oven mitts. Empty the loaf onto a wire rack to cool.
