Quick Sourdough Bread

2 cups sourdough starter
1 teaspoon dry yeast
3 Tablespoons warm water
3 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
3 Tablespoons powdered milk
2 Tablespoons melted shortening or cooking oil
3-4 cups all-purpose flour

Measure out sourdough starter. In small separate bowl dissolve yeast in warm water. Add to sourdough starter along with the sugar, salt, powdered milk, and oil. Mix well. Slowly add the flour until the dough pulls away from the sides of the bowl (it may not take all of the flour so it's very important to add it gradually). Turn out onto floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, adding more flour if necessary. Shape the dough and place in a well greased loaf pan. Cover with a damp cloth and set in a warm place to rise until it is doubled in size. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until done. Makes one loaf.
