SOURDOUGH BREAD RECIPE FOR BREAD MACHINE

This is my go-to sourdough bread recipe for the bread machine. I've been thrilled with my bread machine because it allows me to make delicious bread with minimal effort every day. But I was missing the tangy flavor of artisan bakery sourdough bread.

So I set a goal for myself to figure out how to combine the two. The bread machine's ease of use and the delicious flavor of authentic sourdough bread. In this recipe, I'll show you how to prepare your sourdough starter, how to care for it, my tips and tricks for making the perfect bread machine sourdough, how to set up your bread machine, and, of course, the recipe! This is the ultimate guide to making sourdough bread in a bread machine! So, let's get started...

Why does making sourdough bread take so long?


Sourdough bread requires a significant amount of time to prepare. When I was looking for a bread machine sourdough recipe, I quickly discovered that time is required to achieve that artisan look and flavor.

It's time to let the dough bulk ferment. If you're doing a cold ferment, it could take anywhere from 4 to 18 hours. It's time to pay attention to the dough and do 4-5 stretch and folds every 20-30 minutes to help the gluten develop. It's time to get your dutch oven ready, preheat your oven, and shape and bake your dough.

That amount of time deterred me from making my own sourdough bread. So I set out to create a recipe that I could make using my bread machine on a daily basis and that tasted and felt as close to that delicious artisan bread that I adored as possible.

Unlike many other sourdough bread machine recipes I've found online, this one uses no yeast, so you get that delicious true sourdough taste and texture!

Getting your sourdough starter ready


You have two options for preparing and making your sourdough bread machine starter. To begin, try cultivating your own or purchase a portion of an already mature starter.

Making your own sourdough starter is simple; all it takes is time. You'll need one to two weeks of time and a little luck. There are numerous guides available on the internet that will walk you through the process of preparing your own starter – check them out here and here.

I chose to purchase a portion of an already mature starter for my sourdough adventures. To be honest, I was a little hesitant to try making my own, and I felt much more at ease purchasing an already good, strong culture from a professional bakery. I discovered this one on Amazon and was blown away by how well it works.

It doubles in size every 6 hours, smells exactly like the sourdough bread I buy at my local bakery, and is extremely low maintenance and resilient. Ideal for a sourdough novice!

Starter for sourdough


Taking Care of Your Sourdough Starter
A well-established sourdough is very simple to keep alive. Depending on how frequently you bake, you can take one of two approaches.

Keep your sourdough out of the fridge if you bake every day or every other day. Depending on the strength of your sourdough starter, it may require "feeding" once or twice a day (every 12 hours). How do you know? It's time to feed the sourdough starter when it has doubled in size, stopped growing, and its top has flattened and begun to recede.

If you bake on a regular basis, it's best to keep your sourdough starter in the fridge. Take it out the day before, feed it in the morning and evening, and then use it to make bread the next morning. Feed it again and place it in the fridge.

How much should you feed your sourdough starter?


How much food should you give your starter? The most basic method is to use equal parts starter, flour, and water.

Keep 40 grams (1.4oz) of starter the night before baking, and then mix in a fresh 40 grams (1.4oz) of wholegrain rye flour and 40 grams (1.4oz) of water. You'll have 120 grams (4.2oz) of starter ready to go in the morning! Take 80 grams (2.8oz) for the bread, 20 grams (0.7oz) for the feed, and throw away the rest. Finally, add 20 grams (0.7oz) of flour and 20 grams (0.7oz) of water to the 20 grams (0.7oz) of retained starter.

If you don't intend to bake the next day, just keep the starter at 60 grams (2.1oz) throughout the feedings. Keep 20 grams (0.7oz) of starter in both morning and evening feeds and feed it with 20 grams (0.7oz) of flour and 20 grams (0.7oz) of water.

The method outlined above will reduce flour waste while keeping your sourdough starter healthy, happy, and ready to go when you need it!

What kind of flour should I use to feed my sourdough starter?


Wholegrain dark Rye flour, without a doubt. It provides plenty of nutrients for your yeast and bacteria to thrive, and it adds a delicious tangy flavor to your sourdough bread in bread machine starter! Its nutrient-rich nature also stimulates your starter, which is ideal for a soft and airy bread!

Tips and tricks for making sourdough bread in a bread machine
After much experimentation, I've compiled the following list of bread machine no yeast sourdough bread tips and tricks for you!

The amount of water you use determines how soft and fluffy your bread machine sourdough turns out. The higher the hydration level, the more airy and fluffy the crust will be. If you prefer your bread to be light and fluffy, use the 75 percent hydration recipe below. If you prefer your bread to be a little more dense, try the 65 percent hydration recipe below. Furthermore, the more water you use, the crunchier your crust will become.

A small amount of fat in your bread will help it last longer and keep the crumb softer. On the downside, you won't get a crackly crust like you would with a lean, no-fat dough. I've found that 2% fat in relation to total flour weight provides a good balance of dough longevity, crumb softness, and a firm, crunchy crust that I like.

A sprinkling of sugar or honey results in a nicely browned crust. This is especially important because most bread makers do not reach temperatures as high as your home oven, resulting in bread that is not as brown as you might expect. You don't need much; a half-teaspoon will give your dough a nice color boost!

Sprinkle some flour on top and score it lengthwise in the middle before beginning the baking program. This gives your bread a delicious flour-covered rustic appearance. But, more importantly, it allows your dough to rise evenly, preventing lopsided bread!

No yeast sourdough bread made in a bread machine


Configuring your bread machine to make sourdough bread without yeast
What I love about making sourdough bread in the bread machine is that it requires very little effort on my part while still producing delicious bread! In this section, I'll walk you through how to set up your bread machine and which programs to use to make the perfect sourdough bread!

For this recipe, you'll need to use three different programs in your bread machine. The programs Mix, Rise, and Bake. I own a Panasonic SD-ZX2522 and previously owned a Panasonic SD-ZB2512KXE. I'll give you the program numbers for them, but a quick look through your machine's manual will help you find the right one for your machine!

The first step in making sourdough bread in a bread machine is to combine the ingredients. Measure out the starter and place it in the bread machine bowl. Then stir in the flour, salt, sugar/honey, butter, and water. Pour the water towards the outer edges of your bowl to make your paddle's job easier!

Then, select the dough only setting and let it mix for about 20 minutes, or until all of the ingredients are fully combined and the dough begins to come off the walls of your machine. Menu 29 on the Panasonic SD-ZX2522 performs two short kneading cycles with a short rest interval in the middle, followed by a rest period. Menu 26 is for the Panasonic SD-ZB2512.

The second step is to let your bread machine sourdough bread rest until it has grown by half its original size. Use the proofing setting on your bread machine to keep the dough temperature at the ideal level for proofing.

Use menu 30 on the Panasonic SD-ZX2522 and stop it when the dough has risen by half its original size. Menu 27 is for the Panasonic SD-ZB2512. If your bread machine does not have a proofing menu, don't worry; simply close the lid and leave it alone until the dough has risen. If you want your bread to be more acidic, skip the proofing setting and simply leave it in the bread machine.

Bake your sourdough bread in the third step! Because most bread machines do not heat up to the same temperature as a home oven, you will need to bake your bread for a slightly longer period of time.

I've discovered that baking for 1 hour to 1 hour and 15 minutes results in a golden brown crust and a delicious brunch! Set the timer to 1 hour and 15 minutes on the Panasonic SD-ZX2522 and Panasonic SD-ZB2512. Remember, if you open the lid while your bread is baking, especially during the first 45 minutes, you will lose a lot of heat and the top of your bread will not brown.

That's all! Three simple steps will result in the easiest and most delicious sourdough bread you've ever made!

Pack food and drinks in this sustainable Lunchbox set!
Charlie and the chocolate factory is an iconic story that both kids and adults alike love. One may have read Ronald Dahl’s creation, the novel of 1964 that become a bestseller, or the 1974 movie starring Gene Wilder as the infamous Willy Wonka, or the most recent one, Tim Burton’s reimagination of 2005 box-office hit of 2005 that has Johnny Depp as the chocolate chocolatier. Every person has a favorite from these magical stories and today, here I am presenting the set of NICA'S Lunchbox and a Thermos of 2005 Charlie and the chocolate factory edition. This set is a must for the fans of the franchise as it has a lot of characteristics that not only make it a memento of the film but a gift or thing that is useful in real life. The lunchbox features: •            The design What I absolutely adored about this metal box is that the design is not all kiddish. It has the main character of the movie, Johnny Depp as Willy Wonka it is printed on both sides but the colors and the illustrations are not done in a way that only children could use it. People, especially the fans of the story, will like it and have no problem or embarrassment while carrying it, no matter the age. •            The quality of the printing. Coming to the judge on the printing process, on a scale of 10, I would definitely give it a 9. The main reason being that in my past experiences I’ve seen that most of the metal-made objects lose their illustrations or artwork as they get scrubbed, washed, and whatnot. But even after the use of many months, the printing has not all gotten off. •            Sustainability As I have already pointed out, I have been using this for a long time now and I’m very happy to say that not only the company has done a good job on the printing but a fine work on their quality inspection as well. The metal doesn’t get bent or scratched easily and the food inside does stay warm for a good amount of time. The drink container/thermos: •            Now, we also get a Thermos with our package and I am pleased to announce that it is amazing in terms of the artwork, quantity hold, and material as well. •            I loved the fact that the picture of the Willy Wonka chosen is different on the lunch and the drink container is different. In this Thermos, we get a more close-up shot of Johnny, and that gives the whole set diversity. •            The lid of the Thermos is like the one that can act as your cup and since the material is spot on, you can pour either very hot or cold beverages in it and it wouldn’t affect the cup at all. I would highly suggest checking out another website to sell stuff other than eBay for other gift sets that people would love to receive.

What COVID-19 Impacted on the Commercial Jar Blenders Market in Food & Beverage Industry ?
Impact of COVID-19 on the Commercial Jar Blenders Market in Food and Beverage Industry The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the industrial and commercial progress of most of the countries across the region. COVID-19 has negatively impacted the manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers of commercial jar blenders. The declining export shipment and decreasing demand for commercial jar blenders are significantly reducing the market growth. The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the commercial jar blender market in three ways: a direct impact on production and demand, supply chain disruption, and financial impact on firms. Moreover, disruption in the supply chain directly affects the production of jar blenders, which further decreases the growth rate in the market. The outbreak of COVID-19 has affected the production and supply chain of commercial jar blenders. So, the manufacturers are working on their business strategy to stabilize the demand. This is because several manufacturers are unable to stabilize the commercial jar blenders market during the second and third waves of COVID-19 that hit many countries. Thus, the manufacturers ensure safety in the manufacturing process by following the prevailing situations' norms. STRATEGIC DECISIONS FOR MANUFACTURERS AFTER COVID-19 TO GAIN COMPETITIVE MARKET SHARE In 2020, the market shares of commercial jar blenders are drastically affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. The manufacturers of the commercial jar blenders were facing a significant challenge during COVID-19 due to lack of transportation and disruption in the supply chain. Also, it increased the demand in the market. Owing to less production and sale during COVID-19, the net sale revenue decreased substantially. To gain a competitive market share after COVID-19, the manufacturers have taken certain strategic decisions. •Production of Premium Quality Products: Several manufacturers are focusing on producing high-quality products with innovative features to improve the demand among the customers. For instance, in recent years, customers have adopted smart technologies and automated machines. Hence, the introduction of automatic jar blenders in the market will raise the demand among the end-users. Furthermore, it impels market growth. •Announcing Discounts and Other Offers: The customers are more attracted to the discounts and other offers that are available for the products. The commercial jar blender manufacturers are selling their products at a discounted price to increase the market demand. As people are sensitive to money, the price of discounted products quickly reaches the customers and promotes market growth. Similarly, the offers include extended warranty, free services, and others that influence the people to buy the product. Thus, the discounts and offers of the products are expected to fuel the demand among the population. •Use of Alternative Sourcing: The manufacturers are exploring to increase the quantity of sourced materials. For instance, during the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufacturers stopped production due to a lack of raw material and disruption in the supply chain. Hence, the manufacturers are opting for backup or alternative raw material suppliers which will help to continue the production even during epidemic or pandemic conditions. Therefore, continuous production is expected to aid the manufacturer in increasing the market share. AFTERMATH OF COVID-19 AND GOVERNMENT INITIATIVE TO BOOST THE MARKET The taste of food items is majorly influenced by blending the right amount of ingredients. The use of a manual way of blending may result in a lack of consistency. This may cause a non-uniform taste in a food item and appear unattractive in terms of texture. Thus, the end-user increasingly adopts commercial blenders to ensure a proper blending of food ingredients to provide a better taste and texture. Hence, it raises the demand for commercial jar blenders in the market. On the other hand, the demand for commercial jar blenders has decreased during the COVID-19 pandemic situation. The COVID-19 is an infectious disease which widely spread among the world population in 2020. Therefore, the government has implemented various restrictions and lockdowns in major countries to reduce the spread of the virus. During this period, the transportation of goods came to a halt. Furthermore, it disrupted the supply chain. As a result of the discontinuous supply chain, the commercial jar blender manufacturers had ceased the production process due to a lack of resources and raw materials. Meanwhile, the raw material price continuously fluctuated due to supply chain disruption. In addition, the establishment of lockdown reduced the movement of people from one place to another. Also, it reduced the consumption of food products from restaurants, bars, hotels, café, and other foodservice sectors. Hence, the usage of commercial jar blenders decreased in the foodservice sector. The decrease in the demand for commercial jar blenders in the foodservice sector declined the demand and growth rate in the commercial jar blenders market. In addition, the government has taken certain initiatives to boost up the growth of commercial jars in the market. For instance, the regulation and policies that impact transportation, energy, labor are supervised by different sections of the government. In various countries, the government has unleashed the transportation restriction to the supply of required raw materials to the manufacturers. Similarly, the government allowed the manufacturers to deliver their products to the end-user. Hence, it may aid the manufacturers to boost up their growth in the market. IMPACT ON SUPPLY CHAIN During the pandemic situation, the supply chain was majorly disrupted due to a lack of resources and transportation. Also, the government implemented various restrictions and lockdowns to prevent the spread of the disease. In the same vein, the government restricted the movement of goods across the countries and the entire supply chain was distorted. Owing to the disrupted supply chain, the transportation of raw materials such as blades, glass, steel, polycarbonate, motors, and other materials was interrupted, and the jar blenders' production was halted. Similarly, the manufacturers are unable to transport the final product to the dealers or end-user due to the implementation of lockdown. Thus, the demand for commercial jar blenders was on the decline drastically. As a result, the COVID-19 pandemic has negatively affected the growth of commercial jar blenders in the market. As the regulation for good supply was changed, the transportation cost has been increased. Thus, the manufacturers face a raw material shortage, creating a gap in the amount of material demanded and supplied by the raw material manufacturers. The change in regulations of the supply chain process has created more challenges for the manufacturers and the suppliers, for instance, a rise in inventory cost and hold up the cost of the finished goods, which are still to be delivered. This situation has created an economic loss for the manufacturers and suppliers and the worker who cannot generate their livelihood. Manufacturers must assess many regulations, such as operational risk, extensive inventory handling, and the search for alternative procurement strategies. Some of the critical areas are required to be looked upon by the manufacturers to reduce the gap between the demand and supply of products. IMPACT ON DEMAND The COVID-19 pandemic has affected the commercial progress of most cities across the region. The pandemic of COVID-19 has both short-term and long-term impacts on demand. Due to the lockdown implemented by the government, people are prohibited to consume food at restaurants, café, hotels, and canteen. Hence, the foodservice industry was completely turned off last quarter of 2020. As a result, it decreased the usage of commercial jar blenders. Therefore, the decrease in demand among the end-user diminished the growth of commercial jar blenders in the market in 2020. PRICE IMPACT ON DEMAND OF COMMERCIAL JAR BLENDERS Customers across the globe are significantly shifting their focus towards commercial jar blenders due to many factors such as high blending efficiency, multiple function, and others. The product price has remained the same during the pandemic situation. The price of commercial jar blenders vary depending on the brand and model of the products. Owing to the various restrictions in society, the demand for commercial jar blenders decreased during the pandemic situation. To increase the sale, the manufacturers are selling commercial jar blenders at a discounted price.
