Recipe Notes

This recipe can also be used to make rolls. Add more warm water to the recipe if the starter is too thick.

For Step 6, roll into balls and place in a greased rectangular casserole or cake pan. Let dough rise for an hour or until doubled, then bake in a preheated 375° F (190° C) oven for 25 minutes or until golden on top.
