Sourdough is my method of choice when it comes to preparing and consuming grains.
I’ve mentioned before that I had no idea how versatile sourdough could be until I took the Gnowfglins Sourdough eCourse, and opened up a whole new world of possibilities! Since then, I’ve used sourdough to make everything from the typical bread, biscuits, and pancakes, to treats like pie crust, cake, donuts, and cookies, and even batter for frying onion rings, okra, and fish!
Here are a couple of our favorite sweet treats made with sourdough:
(Anyone else sensing a theme here? 😉 )
Just as I prefer sourdough for my method, I prefer spelt for my grain.
Spelt has a long and fascinating history, numerous advantages over conventional wheat, and is still an affordable option.
This delicious sourdough chocolate cake brings them both together in what has become one of our family’s favorite treats!
I learned to make this cake in the Gnowfglins eCourse, and it’s become a staple dessert in our house, topped with my super simple, honey-sweetened cream cheese frosting. Karate Kid (13) recently requested it for his birthday cake, so I documented the process to share with you while I made it for him.
