Farmer-Style Sour Cream Bread Recipe

Makes 1 loaf

Step 1

Directions: Combine water, sugar and yeast. Stir to dissolve yeast and let stand until bubbly, about 5 minutes.

Step 2

Fit processor with steel blade. Measure 2 cups of the flour, salt and soda into work bowl. Process on/off to mix.

Step 3

Add yeast mixture to flour mixture. Process until blended, about 10 seconds.

Step 4

Spoon sour cream evenly over flour mixture. Turn on processor and add enough of the remaining flour through feed tube so dough forms a ball that cleans the sides of the bowl. Process until ball turns around bowl about 25 times.

Step 5

Turn dough onto lightly floured surface. Shape into a ball and place on greased cookie sheet. Flatten with hands into a circle about 8 inches in diameter. Brush dough with oil. Sprinkle sesame or poppy seeds over dough, if desired. Let stand in warm place until doubled, about 1 hour.

Step 6

Heat oven to 375 F. Bake until golden, 25 - 30 minutes.

Step 7

Remove from cookie sheet. Cool on wire rack.
