Sourdough Discard Vegan Chocolate Cake

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:
