Day 2 in the Life of My Cuisinart - Rye Sourdough Bread

Wouldn’t be fun if I could post “30 days in the Life of My New Cuisinart”…On the second day of owning this fun new tool, I made 3 loaves of 100% Whole Grain Sourdough Bread. 
3 days before making I took out my starter and started to feed it.  What a happy active batch of starter. For complete recipe
About 4  cups of starter.  I added this to the large 14 cup bowl with dough blade.
To 4 cups of starter I added  1 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 light tasting olive oil and 1/2 cup sugar (not honey – honey has some antimicrobial action, and we don’t want to restrict the natural yeast).  I added  whole wheat flour….This is about 6 cups of  dough…a bit heavy…but the machine did knead it quickly!  I needed to stop and stir the “load”.  Next time I might split the dough and knead separately.  I want my machine to work for many years.  If you do overload the machine, it has a safety that turns the motor off to protect it. 
One loaf for us, two for friends.  Ted and I delivered.
