Sourdough Chocolate Cake With Coconut Cream Frosting

sourdough cake post

Ah, the flavor of chocolate meeting sourdough.

I can’t imagine there is anything else quiet like it. The sourness of the sourdough is a perfect flavor combination with the chocolate. It creates a light and fluffy cake that my whole family enjoys.

I like the fact that since it’s sourdough, it’s easier to digest.

Even though my son and I have gluten tolerance issues, we can make this and enjoy a small piece without issues, as the souring process helps to break down the gluten.

Here’s the recipe for sourdough chocolate cake

For the cake:
1 cup sourdough starter
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour, freshly milled
1 cup coconut milk
1 cup coconut oil
1 1/4 cups coconut sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
6 squares baking chocolate, melted
1 tsp sea salt
1 1/2 tsp baking soda

Mix the starter, flour, and the milk together in a bowl, cover, and leave at a room temp for approx 6 hours.

Add eggs, sugar, oil and melted chocolate together in a bowl and mix well. Stir in salt, vanilla and baking soda. Add to the soured flour. Bake in preheated 350Ā° oven for 30-35 minutes. Allow to cool completely before frosting.

For the Frosting:

1 cup coconut cream
1/2 cup coconut sugar
3 squares baking chocolate, melted
1 tsp vanilla

Start by mixing up the coconut creme with the melted chocolate on low, add the sugar and vanilla and mix well. Frost completely cooled cake.

    1. Looks great! What size of pan are you using? Does it need to be oiled or floured? you sound like an expert and it is probably so obvious to you but for the rest of us not so much ??

  6. This cake is so delicious! I love that it’s actually soured for 6 hours so it’s true sourdough. Moist and delicious!
