Throughout quarantine, my husband has taken to both bread making and muffin making (both using his homemade Sourdough Starter which I have lovingly named Clint Yeastwood). While my daughter sits and watches him, critiquing the mess he makes, I await the goodness that comes post-mess from his creations.
His bread is fantastic, but it is actually his Sourdough Muffins that have won 2020. He has made Blueberry Sourdough Muffins, Cranberry Sourdough Muffins, then he combined those two into a Mixed Berry Muffin, he tried out Banana Sourdough Muffins, and then, most recently he made my favorite, the Pumpkin Sourdough Muffin.
I normally do not like pumpkin anything (except for the random sliver of Pumpkin Pie once a year at Thanksgiving), but the pumpkin flavor is incredibly mild in these muffins, so you won’t feel like you took a bite out of a Pumpkin Spice Candle.
In the recipe I just put the quantity you’d use of your own sourdough starter – since it seems everyone has their own technique in making a starter, I am just telling you how much of your own starter to use. If you have any questions please email me!
