I love baking and cooking with buttermilk.
Aside from the notable tang that buttermilk delivers, it also helps to soften whatever it’s used in.
Adding buttermilk to your sourdough bread can be just what you’re looking for if you want to turn your regular sourdough into a delicious sandwich bread or rolls.
The buttermilk brings another layer of acidity to the bread which rounds out the mouthfeel a bit. It also softens the bread so the crust is a little more flexible.
The recipe happened like many of my from-scratch recipes. I’ve got something in the fridge or pantry that I want to use up as to no waste it so I begin concocting a recipe or meal to accomplish my goal.
I’ve made it about 15 times since I created the recipe, testing each time to get to perfection and I know you’re going to LOVE it.
The ingredients you’ll need are listed below:
- All-purpose flour
- Sourdough starter — make one from scratch here — it’ll take about 10 days but it’s so worth it!
- Granulated White sugar
- Full-fat buttermilk, you can use low fat in a pinch
- Unsalted butter
This recipe is for 1 sandwich size loaf.
