This recipe is for the trademark bread of San Francisco. Use a good sourdough starter for best flavour.
Used different ingredients. This is by far the best sourdough bread I've made. I place sesame seeds on top instead of onion, it's great! - 14 Jul 2008
Used different ingredients. Rather than an egg/water wash, I brushed butter on the loaves after they were done baking, and omitted the onion topping this time. I formed this into two baguettes. They had a distinct sourdough flavour, and a great texture with a good crusty crust and soft inside! Thanks so much, Donna! - 14 Jul 2008
Excellent sourdough bread. Makes wonderful croutons. - 14 Jul 2008
