These cheesy crackers  are another perfect way to use my sourdough starter discard. An easy recipe which requires no rising and involves two steps, maybe three if you need to get your starter ready for baking. Just make the dough and then let it rest overnight in the refrigerator. You can see the bits of … Continue reading

Sourdough Bacon Cheddar Muffins

These muffins are another great way to use your “throwaway starter”. I made these muffins twice to get the flavor and texture I wanted. The first recipe came from Genius Kitchen and I was not happy with it – too dry, not enough flavor and maybe they could rise more. The Genius Kitchen recipe peaked … Continue reading

Sourdough Rye Bread in my Mini Zo Bread Machine

Yikes – this rye bread was good. One of the best I’ve made in my Mini Zo. The crust and the bread itself had a good texture and a slice was delicious lathered up with butter. Hmmm – reuben sandwich next! Last week I posted a Sourdough Bread I made in my Mini Zo and I was … Continue reading

Sourdough Cinnamon-Apple French Toast

What a delicious light-textured yeast bread topped with apples, cinnamon and maple syrup.  There is no obvious sourdough flavor but I am sure the starter does add some depth to this great breakfast/brunch dish.  The crust has a crispy bottom and would make an excellent  pizza dough!  If used as a pizza cut the toppings … Continue reading
