Sourdough Coffee Cake

This is by far the easiest and least time consuming thing that I’ve made with my sourdough discard and it tastes amazing! Give it a go!


1 cup sourdough starter

1/3 cup vegetable oil

1 egg, slightly beaten

1 cup flour

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 teaspoon salt

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

Crumb Topping

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 tablespoons butter

1/3 – 1/2 cup chopped pecans

Icing (which I didn’t get on the cake before the fam started eating it, next time)

1 cup powdered sugar

1 – 2 tablespoons french vanilla coffee creamer or milk

1 For the cake, preheat oven to 350. Spray 9 x 9″ pan with cooking spray.

2 Combine starter, oil and egg and mix well.

3 Whisk together flour, sugar, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. Add to sourdough mixture and stir just until combined. Pour into prepared pan.

4 For the crumb topping, with a pastry blender or two forks, mix together all crumb ingredients. Sprinkle on top of cake batter.

5 Bake for 35 minutes or until golden brown and toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool.

6 For the icing, whisk together powdered sugar and milk then drizzle over cake.
