I love baking bread! I think t is mostly because I love eating homemade bread, but I also love the smell of fresh baked bread, and I like giving it to friends and family. =)
I think it has been a little over a year ago that I found this really neat looking sourdough recipe on Taste of Home’s website. I liked the sounds of it since it is a no knead recipe and plus you can start the sourdough starter about 48 hours before you want to make the bread! No hassle with “feeding the starter” or having to mess with all that! I have actually let my starter sit for more them 2 days and it didn’t seem to be much different. I guess it will just keep getting more sour, but I personally would not leave it much longer then that.
I made it in the round pans (pictured above) for a long time, but now I make it in two 9″ loaf pans (pictured below) like I do my other bread.
I sprinkle (pretty thick!) stone-ground cornmeal in my pans after I grease them. My girls just love the cornmeal!

I highly recommend this recipe and hope you enjoy it! Let me know if you try it and how it worked for you!
