Sourdough Loaf

A good loaf of sourdough bread is a real thing of beauty but most people never bake one themselves because it’s known to be a terribly time consuming process involving standing mixers, dough hooks and half-hourly kneading. Our simple Sourdough Loaf cuts through all that complexity to give you an easy recipe we made using a Convection Microwave Oven and Bread Maker.
