Do you already have a sourdough starter? And you are wondering what do I do with the discard? Now, if you are new to baking and the use of sourdough starters, then, you might want to read my post on sourdough st. A sourdough starter is a culture of microorganisms that you find in foods like yogurt or cheese. You cultivate these microorganisms through fermentation. Learn how to make yours with water and flour.
For now, assuming you already know what a sourdough starter is, and you have made yours, then, this recipe is good to go. If you have a homegrown sourdough starter, you need to feed regularly to keep the yeast active. The process involves throwing out the surface liquid and feeding your cultures to keep it alive and suitable for consumption.
However, rather than throw the sourdough discard, use it in other recipes. Scones, cinnamon rolls, or cookies are some recipes you can use your sourdough discard.
The ingredients are sourdough starter, allpurpose flour, I prefer honey to sugar so I have used honey for this recipe. You can use brown sugar if you prefer sugar. And increase the sugar to 3/4 cup or 1 cup if you want it very sweet. I keep mine low but you can go up to one cup. Anything more may be way too sweet.
