Sourdough Popovers

Sourdough popovers

On sunday I decided to make my own sourdough starter... After several searches I decided on a very simple and easy starter. Today was my day to discard a cup and "feed" the rest. As most bakers, I was hesitant to throw out the cup because it just felt wasteful!!! And I absolutely hate wasting anything... I jumped on King Arthurs sight to see what I could dig up with an "unfed" cup. I wanted something simple, quick and easy. Popovers! 5 ingredients and done in 30 mins? Yes please!
My "discard"
Nice and spongey!!!

Recipe said to mix and should be the consistency of heavy cream. I think I got it to where it should be.
Straight from the oven!

This is first time I have ever made these and im not sure what my texture should be, but im quit sure they were slightly under cooked. I was afraid to burn them so took them out slightly early. They were ok, but I think for my next discard, ill try something else....


  1. Hi Becca,
    Yes, like you, I am so hesistant to "throw out that one cup", such a waste, been meaning to start with my sourdough starter, but have yet to try! I have never used sourdough for popovers before, interesting! Yeah, a good idea to source for recipes using the "discarded starter" before I actually begin with one! :)
    Looking forward to your post on the sourdough bread!

  2. I have recently discovered the awesomeness of pop overs. They look delicious. Thank you for sharing this great idea for the unfilled cup. It is a wonderful alternative to throwing out mix.

  3. The color is perfect. I can see the inside is moisture and soft. I will try to add dry grapes.
