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)
