Keeping a sourdough starter is a bit like taking care of a pet. Regular feedings will keep your starter happy and active and ready for baking. But what if your starter is more active than you are?
Some days I don’t have the time or energy to bake artisan-style sourdough loaves. And if I don’t bake something with my starter, it will overflow and make a mess of the kitchen.
So today, I’m sharing with you my lazy, go-to recipe: Sourdough Discard Cinnamon Bread.
Sweet and Sour
Sourdough discard cinnamon bread shares a lot of similarities to Amish Friendship bread. Both recipes blend the sourdough tang with cinnamon, sugar, and nutmeg to make a tasty dessert loaf.
But unlike Amish friendship bread, my sourdough discard cinnamon quick bread doesn’t use sugar in the starter, nor does it have a sugar-covered crust. Instead, my recipe has an optional glaze to sweeten the crust, and you can use your sourdough starter in whatever stage it’s in: fed, unfed, immature, or matured.
