      Title: Basic sourdough bread
 Categories: Breads
      Yield: 6 Servings
      1 c  Sourdough starter
  2 1/2 c  Flour
      2 c  Warm water
  3 3/4    To 4-1/4 C flour
      3 tb Sugar
      1 ts Salt
    1/4 ts Baking soda
      3 tb Vegetable oil
  Cold water
  Mix 1 st 3 ingreds. in 3 qt. glass bowl with wooden spoon until
  smooth. Cover; let stand in warm, draft-free place for 8 hours. Add
  3-3/4 C flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and oil to the mixture in
  bowl. Stir with wooden spoon until smooth and flour is completely
  absorbed. (Dough should be just firm enough to gather into a ball. If
  necessary, add remaining 1/2 C flour gradually, stirring until all
  flour is absorbed.) Turn dough onto heavily floured surface; knead
  until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in greased bowl;
  turn greased side up. Cover; let rise in warm place until double,
  about 1-1/2 hours. (Dough is ready if indentation remains when
  touched.) Punch dough down; divide into halves. Shape each half into
  a round,  slightly flat loaf. Do not tear dough by pulling. Place
  loaves in opposite corners of greased cookie sheet. Make three 1/4"
  deep slashes in each loaf. Let rise until double, about 45 minutes.
  Heat oven to 375. Brush loaves with cold water. Place cookie sheet in
  center of oven; it should not touch the sides of the oven. Bake,
  brushing occasionally with water, until loaves sound hollow when
  tapped, about 50 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets; cool on wire
  Be sure to let dough rise completely both times - it might take
  longer than the estimated times given.
