Because of their flavor and texture, sourdough bread, rolls and pancakes are well worth the trouble they take to make, but it is not possible to ensure predictable results. The success of the sourdough starter, which gives the dough its character, depends on a proper blend of yeast and bacterial fermentation. This in turn depends to a large degree on the flour and the amount and types of bacteria in the air. To make about four cups:

3 cups all purpose flour
1 package active dry yeast
2½ cups lukewarm water (110° to 115°)

Starting a day ahead, place the flour in a large glass mixing bowl. Make a well in the center and pour in the yeast and water. With a large spoon, gradually stir the flour into the yeast and water, continuing to stir until the ingredients are well combined. Then, with a whisk or rotary or electric beater, beat vigorously until the mixture is completely smooth. Drape with a kitchen towel and set aside in a warm, draft free spot (such as an unlighted oven) for 24 hours. If at the end of the time the starter has not bubbled, it must be discarded. After you have used as much of the starter as you need, transfer the remaining starter to a glass jar or crock equipped with a tight fitting lid. Covered and refrigerated, it can be stored for several weeks. If used regularly, it may keep indefinitely.


½ cup milk
2 tablespoons cornstarch
½ cup margarine
½ cup sugar
¼ teaspoon salt
1½ teaspoons vanilla
1½ cup powdered sugar
Chopped nuts, optional

Cook milk and cornstarch in saucepan over medium heat until all liquid is absorbed. Stir well while cooking, but do not overcook. Set aside to cool. Meanwhile, cream margarine, sugar and salt together until fluffy. Add cooled paste. Beat till fluffy, about the soft peak stage. Fold in vanilla. Add nuts, if used. Blend in powdered sugar. Will frost 9 by 13 inch or two 9 inch layers. OPTIONAL: Add nuts before powdered sugar and use 1/3 of the mixture for filling. Add only 1 cup powdered sugar to remaining mixture to frost. For chocolate, use ¼ cup cocoa and 1¼ cups powdered sugar.


1 cup sourdough starter
6½ to 7 cups all purpose flour
2 cups lukewarm water (110° to 115°)
1 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons sugar
½ teaspoon baking soda
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
2 tablespoons butter, softened

Starting a day ahead, place the sourdough starter in a large glass or ceramic mixing bowl and add 2½ cups of the flour and the lukewarm water. With a large wooden spoon, mix the starter, flour and water together until well combined, then continue to stir until the dough is smooth. Drape the bowl with a kitchen towel and place in a warm, draft free spot (such as an unlighted oven) overnight. The following day, remove 1 cup of the mixture and refrigerate it, in a tightly sealed glass jar or crock, as your new sourdough starter. Or you can add it to any sourdough starter you may have left. To the dough remaining in the bowl, add 4 cups of the flour, the salt, sugar, baking soda and oil. With a large spoon, stir the ingredients together, and continue to stir until the mixture is smooth and the flour is completely absorbed. The dough should be just firm enough to be gathered into a ball. If it is too soft, add the remaining ½ cup of flour, a tablespoon at a time, beating vigorously after each addition and using only enough of the flour to give the dough its proper consistency. On a heavily floured surface, knead the dough by pushing it down with the heels of your hands, pressing it forward, and folding it back on itself. Continue to knead for about 10 minutes, or until the dough is smooth, shiny and elastic.
Sprinkle it from time to time with a little flour to prevent it from sticking to the board. Shape the dough into a ball and place it in a lightly buttered bowl. Drape with the kitchen towel and set in the warm, draft free place for about 2½ hours, or until it has doubled in volume. With a pastry brush, spread the bottom and sides of three warmed 9 by 5 by 3 inch loaf pans with the softened butter. Punch the dough down with a single blow of your fist and with a large, sharp knife, cut it into three equal parts. Shape each part into a loaf and place the loaves in the loaf pans. Set aside in the warm, draft free place for about an hour to allow them to double in volume. Preheat the oven to 375°. Bake the loaves in the middle of the oven for about one hour, or until they are golden brown on top and shrink slightly from the sides of the pan. Cool on racks. Serve at room temperature.

TO REMOVE BALL POINT INK STAINS: Spray ball point ink marks generously with ordinary hair spray. Work spray into marks with fingers. It will look terrible, but it all comes out in the wash.
