Yes, sourdough can be used to create luscious desserts, too! And the icing on the cake? Desserts prepared with sourdough are more nutritious and digestible than others. In fact, sourdough is the best grain prep method we have, so it's my personal favorite when it comes to baking anything. A good sourdough recipe rises to the top of my “try” list.
What about you? Do you love sourdough, too? If you don't already, I hope you will soon. 🙂
To help you along, I gathered together this collection of 17 gorgeous, delicious, and nutritious sourdough dessert recipes. Some of them are ours, so I know already that they're both yummy and healthy.
The others we reviewed carefully to make sure they met our criteria of: 1) use whole foods and 2) call for a sufficient souring time on the grain*.
*Why sufficient souring time? Combining the sourdough starter and flour and letting them sour together for 7 to 8 hours or more allows the sourdough starter to “work on” the rest of the flour and make it nutritious and digestible.
