Sourdough Discard Crinkle Cookies

Crinkle cookies were my absolute favorite growing up. I’ve always been an absolute chocolate fiend, so I could never get enough of these rich and fudgy treats.  When I set out to recreate a sourdough version of these cookies, I knew I wanted them to have a really soft, and chewy middle. Adding discard to…

Flaky Sourdough Discard Biscuits

This is the biscuit recipe I’ve been searching for my entire life. Before making these, I thought the perfect biscuits could only come from a can. But these biscuits are so much better than the canned stuff, they are flaky with layers upon layers of soft, buttery, rich crumb. I promise after you make these,…

Saveur Blog Awards 2019

WE DID IT! Thanks to all of you, Make It Dough took home the Reader’s Choice Award for Best Special-Interest Blog at the Saveur Blog Awards. The win came as a complete shock, as I never thought I could win such a tremendous honor after only one year of making sourdough and blogging. It’s been…

Sourdough Discard Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies

My cookie recipes here on Make It Dough are the most popular and widely shared of all my posts. But I have to say, these pumpkin-enriched cookies are probably best I’ve ever made.  These cookies have an amazing texture that I achieved due to a few techniques and a key ingredient that I substituted out…

I’m a Saveur Blog Awards 2019 Finalist!

Perhaps one of my proudest moments. I’ve been named a finalist for the Saveur 2019 Blog Awards in the incredibly apt, Most Obsessive Category. It feels great to be recognized for something, I simply just love. I learned how to make sourdough by following The Perfect Loaf. I remember thinking how amazing it was that he…

Vegan Sourdough Apple Cinnamon Rolls (No Egg and No Butter)

Wow I am soooo genuinely excited about this recipe. This came together completely as an accident. We had an excess of apples, and of course I wanted to incorporate them in some sort of bread recipe. I knew that many cake and cookie recipes use applesauce as a substitute for eggs, and I was curious…

Sourdough Discard Brownies

Better late than never — so many people messaged me to ask for this brownie recipe after I shared a photo of it on my Instagram stories a few weeks ago. Last weekend I finally got the chance to bake and perfect this recipe and now I’m finally ready to share it with you guys!…

Sourdough Pita Bread

I have a confession, I’ve been the worst sourdough mom and even worse blogger lately. I originally started baking bread and blogging after quitting my full-time job in August of 2018. I lost my passion for my profession (public relations), wanted to take a break and reassess the direction I wanted to take my career….

Creating Fruit Yeast Water Starter

Creating yeast water couldn’t be easier, simply combine fruit and water, and you’ll be ready to bake naturally leavened bread in less than a week. Here, I’ll show you how you can use yeast water to create a sourdough starter that’s ready in 3 or 4 days, instead of 2 weeks.  If you’ve ever made…

Sourdough Potato Hamburger Buns

Nothing says summer like hamburgers (or veggie burgers). Once you make homemade sourdough buns yourself, you won’t be able to go back to those plastic-wrapped packs at the store. Full sourdough hamburger buns was the chosen #groupbake challenge, by the Sourdough Bread Baking group Facebook for the month of June. Unlike previous challenges, this time…
