Starterless Sour Bread — Completely Revised

My starterless sour bread formula has been completely revised. It now uses a formula developed by the USDA Eastern Regional Research Center in Wyndmoor, PA. It was developed several years after the landmark Kline & Sugihara study at the Western Regional Research Center in California which studied the bacteria found in San Francisco sourdough.

I have baked the new recipe and it turned out significantly more sour than the first formula. If it's sour you want, this recipe is worth a try. It does not use a starter or sourdough culture. All of the ingredients can be found on supermarket shelves — nothing to order from amazon.com.

Send me a private message if you are interested in it.

Please write "Imitation Sourdough" when that's what you mean. This is not snark, but an earnest request.

The board software will not let me send you a private message, possibly because you're new?

I will send you the info as soon as I am able to.
