If you’re looking for the best sourdough discard chocolate cake recipe, this is it! There’s no better way to use sourdough discard.
The process of making a no-yeast sourdough boule is not for the novice baker and it’s certainly not for the time-crunched. More than once I’ve discussed with my fellow baking addict, Sally of Real Mom Nutrition, the commitment required to work sourdough into your schedule.
I, for one, plan to keep my starter alive as long as possible. And to do that, I have to feed my starter at least once a week… boule baked or not.
And with feeding the starter, of course, comes the inevitable — sourdough discard.
When I first made my Sourdough Discard Banana Bread with Chocolate Chips…
… I had no idea it would turn out to be one of my family’s all-time favorite recipes. I made it countless times during quarantine… and apparently, so have many other people. It’s rapidly become one of my most popular recipes and for good reason.
It’s easy and delicious — my two favorite qualities in a baking recipe.
Primed to knock it out of top spot, though, is this new Sourdough Discard Chocolate Cake:
I mean, look at it. If you can’t envision the deliciousness, I’m not sure what else to say.
I realized early in my sourdough experience that one of the shortcomings of so many sourdough discard recipes is how little discard they used.
I get that if you’re just doing a one-time feeding maybe a few ounces is enough to whip up some sourdough pancakes and call it a day. But for those of us accumulating a jar full of discard, we need sourdough discard recipes that use a lot of discard.
And that recipe needed to be a show-stopper. I get that sourdough crackers have a place, but c’mon. Who can say no to sourdough discard chocolate cake?
I’ve made this cake multiple times and even shared the recipe with a friend who asked for it as soon as shared a pic of it on Instagram. So just know it’s well-tested, family-approved, and just what you need to make something special with your sourdough discard. Enjoy! ~Regan
