Faux Sourdough Bread Recipe


Faux Sourdough Bread Recipe

My Mother in Law is on a low sodium diet (under 1000mg per day). Faced with the challenge of her diabetes plus her sodium restrictions, she could not buy commercially made breads. Hubby gave her caregivers this recipe years ago, and she has been making, and enjoying, this Faux Sourdough Bread Recipe ever since.

Prep Time:20 minutes

Cook time:4 hours, bread machine directions dependent

Ingredients:

1 1/2 tsp Yeast
2 cups (no sodium) Bread Flour
1 TBSP Sugar
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 cup Sour Cream (works with non-fat)
1 TBSP Vinegar
1/2 cup Milk

Directions:

• All ingredients should be at room temperature before beginning.
• Combine ingredients in order in your bread pan.
• Bake according to your bread machine’s instructions (white bread is the bread choice).

When she was first diagnosed, low sodium/low sugar breads were nearly impossible to find. There is one frozen variety she said didn’t taste good. There is also a variety now (2015) that Trader Joe’s sells fresh in east coast stores. Unfortunately, my mother-in-law live out west (Las Vegas), and can’t get that bread. Sooooo, her caregivers continue to make this recipe for her weekly.

Note: her aids do say it freezes well when they have extras!

  1. This is VERY interesting.
    My hubby loves sourdough and I do bake-but keeping a sourdough mother is like keeping a pet (And I don’t need another pet).
    My question is about the sodium. For flavor purposes, I usually cut the qty in half in recipes but rarely omit it entirely. What happens if I add a pinch or two in this case? Will it adversely affect the chemistry?

    P.S. Happy Veterans Day

    • I do not know, Barbee, but I doubt it will hurt. The lack of sodium makes the bread flatter, so you may get a better looking bread with a pinch.

      And yeah, this is awesome to not have or keep, a starter.

  2. Interesting.. Maybe I’ll check it out one of these days.. like tomorrow. 😉 My oven is dead right now and I have a bread machine I havent used in years.. 😛

  3. My question is this, how would bake this bread without a bread machine, and what would the temp and time be?? I’ve never used a bread machine, but would love to try and make this soon! Ty 🙂

    • Kathy, I just asked my husband (it is his mom that the aids make it for), and he said they never make it without the bread machine, and can’t recommend an oven temp, bake time, etc.

      I am sorry.

    It looks like a white bread which is not good for diabetics, is there a certain brand of flour, white bread flours are high in carbs, What makes this recipe Low Glycemic. The vinegar may help out in regulating blood sugar as well as the fact that is a sourdough bread.
