If you do not have time to bake sourdough every week but have to feed your starter with flour, you might enjoy a recipe that takes only a short rise and is popped right into the oven. Recipes using sourdough starter can be augmented with baking powder, baking soda, or yeast for a little extra rise and to save time.
This streusel covered, sourdough coffee cake is delicious with coffee or tea.
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) unsalted butter
Note: The sourdough starter should be as thick as thick pancake batter, or about 50% flour, 50% water. We usually remove half the starter and feed both halves with equal amounts of flour and water, by weight, then wait for it to bubble up (about 4 hours) then put one jar back in the refrigerator for another week. The extra sourdough starter can be given to a friend or used in a recipe like this one.
Gather the ingredients.
Mix the streusel topping first by combining flour, sugar, and cinnamon in a bowl.
Then, add the butter and rub the cold butter in with your fingers until the mixture is crumbly and sticks together if you press it between your fingers. You may use a mixer if you wish. Set crumbs aside.
To make the cake, place the sourdough starter in a bowl.
Add the rest of the ingredients and stir until combined.
Pour the batter into a buttered and floured, 8- or 9-inch square pan or an 8-inch, round, layer cake pan.
Smooth top and sprinkle reserved crumbs evenly over the batter.
Preheat oven to 375 F. Let the cake rise for about 30 minutes in a warm place.
Bake in the oven for about 35 minutes, or until cake is set and the sides begin to pull away from the pan.
