Sourdough discard strawberry muffins

Hi everyone, long time no see!

So I have been busy in the kitchen baking, celebrating birthdays, and getting back to some of our familiar routines like swimming and drama classes for the kids. Although all are good for the soul, I have to admit that I love our lockdown life’s slowness that comes with it. So far this year has been a sabbatical year for me. I struggle to see us running around like headless chickens again trying to pack our days with activities and socials.

With the bunch of extra time introduced by the COVID lockdown, came the opportunity to get into slow food. My sourdough starter is going strong and I have put her to good use, making all sorts of healthy sourdough bread and other yummy goodies.

From sourdough bread comes sourdough discard and, I have always been quite frugal. Waste not, want not. So this morning I decided to put Esmerelda (My sourdough starter’s name) to good use and made some Sourdough discard strawberry muffins. Oh boy! Are they tasty! I have come to the conclusion that nothing compares to baked goods made with sourdough. It really is superior in texture and flavor. These sourdough discard muffins are no different and they will not disappoint.
