moist & delicious sourdough starter cornbread

You know what goes best with chili? You likely guessed it, CORNBREAD. You know what makes cornbread extra delicious? Yep, sourdough starter.

This new recipe is our current family favorite, born from an easy button dinner night of my chunky pumpkin chili and last minute cornbread. I needed to discard to start a fresh loaf of sourdough, and I hate throwing it out, so into our cornbread the starter went, and the result was fabulous. I love the creativity that comes with the sourdough process and the additional flavor, moisture, and nourishment it adds to all kinds of recipes.

Enjoy, friends! And cheers to a season of warm chilis, stews, and soups and all the sourdough foods that go along with them.

This cornbread pairs beautifully with the clean crafted Bookbinder’s Apprentice Red Blend (fruit, bold, and delicious).
