I don't have this sized down for my machine... but here is the recipe from
my book of 'regular' bread recipies... as for sour dough muffins... I would
assume you would need to add your proper starter to the recipe.

AGAIN... THIS IS NOT SIZED FOR BREAD MACHINES! I have put it here to help

you compare recipies!!!

Griddle or baking sheet = 1 heavy metal, electric, or soapsonte griddle, or
heavy skillet, or baking sheet

1) In a large mixing or mixer bowl measure 3 cups flour, and the dry
ingredients. Stir to blend together. Add the butter to the hot water and

pour into the dry ingredients. Beat for 2 minutes with the mixer flat
beater, or 150 strokes with a wooden spoon. Add the egg. Stir in the
remaining flour, 1/4 c at a time, until the dough is a rough, shaggy mass.
If using a mixer, change to the dough hook.

2) Turn the dough onto a floured work surface and knead with a strong
push-turn-fold motion until the dough is smooth, elastic, and feels alive
under your hands. Inthe mixer, the dough will clean the sides of the bowl
and form a ball around the hook and move with it. If the dough sould
continue to be sticky, add liberal sprinkles of flour. Knead for 10

3) Pat the ball fo dough with lightly greased fingertips and place in a
bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and set aside at room temperature to double
in size, about 1 hour.

4) Punch down the dough, knead for 30 seconds, and set aside to rest for 1
minutes. Sprinkle the work surface with cornmeal and turn the dough onto
it. Roll out the dough until it is 1/4" thick. If it resists the rolling
pin and pulls back, let it rest for 1 or 2 minutes. Cut into 3" round (4"
for eggs Benedict) with a cookie cutter.

5) Sprinkle the work surface with cornmeal and put the rounds under a
towel. Let rise until they are doubled in size to about 1/2" thick, 45

6) Heat the electric griddle to 325 deg. or preheat teh oven to 450 deg 20
minutes before baking.

7) Bake the muffins for 2 min on each side. Do not cook fast, so avoid
the hot center of the griddle; place the muffins around the sides of the
griddle. Reduce heat and bake for 6 additional minutes on each side or a
total of about
16 minutes. Don't scorch.

8) If using th oven, place the cut muffins on teh baking sheet and bake
for 15 min, turning them over after 6 or 7 minutes. They will rise and
swell to look rather like puffballs. (if using a convection oven, reduce
heat 50 deg.)

9) Remove the muffins fromt eh griddle ro baking sheet. Cool on a metal
rack before toasting. Pull apart with the tines of a fork, or the fingers,
to toast.

These freeze well and keep for months inthe deep freeze at 0 deg.
