Bread Machine Sourdough Bread

This following sourdough recipe was developed using the French bread cycle on the Zojirushi's 1 1/2-lb. machine. This particular cycle calls for a total of 30 minutes of kneading, a first rise of 40 minutes, and a second rise of 1 hour, 50 minutes. It's this long second rise which allows the sourdough to attain sufficient volume; if your machine doesn't have a cycle with a long second rise, you may want to increase the amount of yeast you use. The bread bakes for 60 minutes, slightly longer than the usual 55 minutes. Your machine may have a whole-grain or some other cycle which approximates the Zojirushi's French bread cycle.
