I hate to throw away the unfed sourdough when I make bread weekly and if you make sourdough bread, I bet you do, too. I’m always trying to find things to do with it. The last thing I’ve worked on is putting it in cobblers. I like to make the old-fashioned cobbler that mom, Nana, and Meema used to make and this recipe is a sourdough tweak of that.
1 stick of butter
and poured it into a 9 x 13 glass baking dish, coating the bottom and sides completely.
I put these ingredients in a bowl and stirred:
1 cup unfed sourdough starter
3/4 cup whole milk
1 cup all-purpose flour
2/3 cup sugar (if you like it very sweet, increase this to 3/4 cup)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
I plopped this mixture over the melted butter. (I don’t bother to spread it out much; the oven will take care of that)
Next, I put 1 1/2 or 2 cups of blueberries on top of that.
Or, I put 4 – 5 peeled and sliced fresh peaches on top. (Or most any other fruit, like blackberries)
Just before putting it into the oven, I sprinkle a tiny bit of cinnamon over the top.
I bake this beautiful Sourdough Cobbler at 350 degrees for about 45 minutes. (Oven times vary, so take a look at it near the end of the time. The cobbler dough will rise up over some of the fruit and your house will smell absolutely amazing)
