Sourdough Brownies

These Sourdough Brownies may not look the nicest when they come out of the oven but they are a rich, tasty treat. A spoonful is all you need to satisfy that sweet tooth craving!

This recipe reminds me of a flourless chocolate cake. It has a fudge like taste and almost seems undercooked. The brownies are very dense and rich. They are the perfect brownie to pair with a scoop of ice cream.

If you don’t yet have any Sourdough Starter, follow the directions here to make your own. We have Sourdough Saturdays at our house so once a week, we make a new sourdough recipe. Sometimes we even have enough sourdough to make two recipes…bonus!

Substitutions/Additions made by Cooking After Class for Sourdough Brownies:

  • I used a milk chocolate bar and toblerone bar instead of dark chocolate because I had those in my pantry.
  • used avocado oil instead of vegetable oil (next time I may substitute for unsweetened applesauce instead)

Tips from Cooking After Class for making Sourdough Brownies:

  • Next time, I think I may try them in a mini muffin pan or even in a mini bar pan. It would lower the baking time comfortably and help them to cook much more evenly. My mouth is watering just thinking of these tasty bites!
