Sourdough Cobbler


Sourdough Cobbler with blueberries – do you think I put too many?

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.

I melted

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)

Sourdough Cobbler with fresh peach slices  – seriously amazing.
