Sourdough Chocolate Cake

Sourdough and chocolate? I wasn't so sure either. But my sister-in-law shared the recipe for this moist, light cake. I can't pretend it is healthy just because it has sourdough but it is fun way to use up some extra starter.

I sometimes use whole wheat flour instead of white which makes the cake heavier but my family still eats it.

Sourdough Chocolate Cake

1/2 cup starter
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
2 eggs
1/2 cup cocoa powder

Mix starter, milk, and flour together. Sit mixture in room temperature for 1 to 3 hours. Then add remaining ingredients and mix well. Pour into a well-greased bundt pan or two 9-inch round cake pans. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30 minutes (less time for round pans). Cool for ten minutes before removing from pan. Dust with confectioners sugar if desired.


  1. Looks yummy! I know my boys would love this!

  2. That both looks and sounds yummy! Thank you for sharing.

  3. Mmmm, I think my family would enjoy this.


  4. Dear Gina, My sister gave me a sourdough starter last month. Your sourdough chocolate cake recipe was moist and delicious. I even used whole grain spelt flour and it tasted like cake to my "enriched flour loving" Husband. Your recipes have made healthier choices more fun. Your spiritual blogs have made a difference in my life. You are a blessing. Thank you!

  5. Thank you Gina for sharing this recipe I have made it many times and my family loves it! I'm going to try and add grated zucchini to it today. I love your update family picture and I'm so so to hear of your husbands cancer diagnosis. May you find comfort and peace at this had time you are in my thoughts and prayers!


I love to hear from you.
