"This was a very easy recipe and it did taste like sourdough. I used plain non-fat greek yogurt in place of the sour cream and it turned out wonderful. An easy sourdough substitute!!!"

"V e r y good! I loved how easy it was -- took me about 8 minutes to load up the bread machine and the ingredients are pretty common too. (Used lite sour cream, by the way.) It does have that tangy taste to it, which was perfectly fine."

"This bread was definetely sour, from the vineger. But it had such a twang to it, it just wasn't very good. My family just loves sourdough so I thought this was perfect, an easy recipe. No. I won't be making this again it, just wasn't that good."
