  • Have water, oil and sour cream at 80°F, and all other ingredients at room temperature. Place ingredients in pan in the order recommended by manufacturer. Slivered almonds can be added 5 minutes before the end of the last kneading. Select basic cycle and medium/normal crust. Do not use delay timer. Check dough consistency after 5 minutes of kneading. The dough should be in a soft, tacky ball. If it is dry and stiff, add water, 1/2 to 1 tablespoon at a time. If it is too wet and sticky, add 1 tablespoon of flour at a time. When cycle is complete, remove bread from pan; cool on wire rack.
