Don’t let the name throw you off, you won’t taste any sourdough in this decadent, moist sourdough chocolate cake.
I don’t bake cakes very often, but when I do I tend to go for rich chocolaty ones. The type of chocolate cake that is so ooey gooey that you’d swear it wasn’t fully baked (not that that would stop you). The type that makes you want a glass of milk just looking at the pictures.
I thought it would be fun (and tasty) to demonstrate just what you can do with a sourdough starter, since I’ve been enjoying using mine for a couple weeks now.
This sourdough chocolate cake recipe comes from the King Arthur website, and when I first saw it I thought “Really?” But it had so many positive reviews I gave it a go. I was really pleased with the results. You don’t taste the sourdough in it. Instead you get a seriously chocolate, moist cake topped with a sweet espresso butter cream frosting.
This cake is of course dependent upon you having sourdough starter. If you don’t have one you are in luck! Today just so happens to be the last day to enter our King Arthur Sourdough Starter & Crock Set, so if you haven’t yet, take a moment to enter for chance to win. 😉
