I have been baking with Dak machines for several years. In fact, I
currently own the orginal Dak Auto Bakery and the newer Turbo Baker IV.
I think they are wonderful.
I also bought Turbo Baker II but was not satisfied with it. I
returned it and received a full refund from Dak.)
Of the many bread machines books I have used, I like the 4-volume
set by Donna German best (especially Volume 3). I developed my own
sourdough recipes that produced very good results but switched to
her recipes; they involve less work and they also produce very good
Here is another nice and simple sourdough recipe. It appears in a
booklet sent by Dak to purchasers of the Turbo IV. I used ordinary
bread flour, the "Oat/French" setting, and the regular (4 hour) cycle.
The booklet states that the shorter turbo cycle also works.
