One more way to use your starter! Sometimes I skip the topping and just drizzle white frosting over the top.
- 1 cup sourdough starter
- 1⁄3 cup vegetable oil
- 1 egg (slightly beaten)
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 3⁄4 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine
- 1 tablespoon flour
- Combine sourdough starter, oil and egg.
- Stir together dry ingredients and add to sourdough mixture.
- Put dough into greased 9 inch square pan.
- Crumble topping ingredients together (I use a pastry blender) and sprinkle topping on top of batter.
- Bake for 35 minutes at 350 degrees.
Lovely dense coffee cake, quick to fix and perfect with coffee or tea. We enjoyed how the topping sank into the cake in places. Used starter that I'd fed earlier in the day. Next time I'd bake only 30 minutes. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
This is wonderful!!! It's easy, too. I've only made "quick" coffeecakes before, never yeasted, so I don't know how this one compares to yeasted coffeecakes. But it's far superior to the quick ones I've made: better rise and better flavor. I also thought the sweetness was perfect if you are planning to serve this as dessert. If you want it for breakfast/brunch, you could cut back the sugar in the cake part a bit (to half a cup), but leave the topping as is...unless you add some pecans! This will be a regular feature in our house when we need to use up some starter.
Wonderful!!!! My family loved it and I loved being able to use our sourdough starter in a completely different way. Excellent and easy!! I did use melted butter in place of the oil (same as I do for sourdough pancakes) and I doubled the streusel topping. We live at nearly 7000 feet and no adjustment was needed. It baked perfectly in a glass pan - 350 degrees for 35 min. To set the center, I turned off the oven and let the coffee cake stay in for an additional 5 minutes. It came out perfectly. Thank you for a simply delicious alternative for use with starters. I can't wait to try your gingerbread!!
