Sourdough Chocolate Chip Muffins
Please bear with me as i yet again put up another sourdough recipe.
This time, i used my sourdough discard to make chocolate chip muffins.
The sourdough here acts as an acidic base for the baking soda, which made the muffins get an extra “oomph” while rising in the oven.
As always with muffins, i was extra generous with my chocolate chips. I loved picking the chips with my fingers when i eat my muffins.
Taste wise, i couldnt really taste the sour twang of the sourdough starter. Neither did Mr.Crustabakes… I know this because he didn’t complain. You see, Mr. Crustabakes isn’t a big fan of sourdough related items. He thinks they are stinky and rotting. Little did he know that he just scarfed a whole muffin of sourdough. Ha!
