Chocolate Sourdough Starter Recipe

Easy instructions for creating a chocolate starter to use in your sourdough baking.

Chocolate Sourdough Starter

Yields1 Serving

 15 g Cocoa Powder
 15 g Sugar
 50 g Flour (All Purpose, Rye, Bread, Whole Wheat - whatever you want to feed your starter)
 25 g Established Sourdough Starter
 50 g Water

1

Use a scale for accuracy. Combine all ingredients into a clean, wide mouth jar. Stir vigorously until it forms a smooth, chocolately paste. You will find the mixture is quite stiff due to the cocoa. This is totally fine, it will loosen up as it ferments.

Cover your chocolate starter with a paper towel secured with an elastic band or a loose fitting lid and set aside to allow fermentation to occur. If it seems slow, give it a stir after a few hours. It should double within 10 hours (as long as you've used an established sourdough starter).

It's up to you whether you just build this starter when you require it - or double the mixture and use half and put half in the fridge. You can then just take it out and feed it as you need it.
