Sourdough Discard Vegan Chocolate Cake

Share

I love to save up my discarded sourdough starter to make this delicious Sourdough Discard Vegan Chocolate Cake. One of the things which puts people off homemade sourdough is throwing away the excess sourdough starter while you are feeding it. I hate that too and that’s why I am sharing this zero waste recipe. Added bonus: it’s vegan too!

Start by mixing flour, brown sugar, cocoa powder, baking soda and salt in a medium bowl. In a separate bowl, mix your excess sourdough starter with water, vinegar, vanilla extract and olive oil. Pour the wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir. Bake the batter until a skewer inserted comes out clean. Enjoy!

To make the Sourdough Discard Vegan Chocolate Cake, you will need the following ingredients:

Replaced the vanilla extract with vanilla sugar insted to have a stronger vanilla taste.

Taste great and fun to make too but instead of strawberries i'd recommend cherries it goes better with chocolate.

A Vegan chocolate cake? Now this is something I for sure have to try out.

Wonderful vegan cake never found any other ones like this before.

Okay so hear me out, almond milk instead of water. It helps the taste and texture.

What's the difference between sourdough and normal dough is the taste different or something?

Stacy Bubash

Good but not too sweet like you'd imagine and I think that's because it's brown sugar instead of cane.

Marie-Rose

Can you please add measurements in metric?

Athina
