Sourdough Bread Variations

My potato flake sourdough starter and bread can be used to create so many different variations. Some of my favorite sourdough bread variations are my cinnamon sugar pull-apart bread, orange bread, and dinner rolls.

Potato Flake Sourdough Bread

I love my potato flake sourdough bread. It’s slightly sweet and super soft. Everyone who eats it, loves it. Recently, I have experimented using the dough with other flavors and knew I needed to share all of these possibilities.

If you are wondering how to starter your own potato flake sourdough starter, make sure to check out this post. It’s easy and only requires 4 ingredients. Plus, it really low maintenance!

*Important Note*

All of these recipes use 1/4 of my sourdough bread. However, that is based on baking in a 8in X 3.75in X 2.38in loaf pans such as these. If you are baking in a typical 9×5 loaf pan, I would suggest using 1/3 of the prepared dough.

Use my sourdough bread recipe that you can find here and use the following the recipe for 1/4 of the dough made.

Orange Sourdough Bread

My family loves orange rolls on Christmas morning, but we couldn’t find them this last year. From now on, I will be making this instead because it is even better than the canned orange rolls that I can never find. This orange bread loaf may be one of my favorite sourdough bread variations.
