Yes, that lovely, warm, blueberry filled muffin was made with my sour dough starter! (My not yet named starter, though I am between honoring Mary by naming it after her, or calling it Marvin, just cause that's what keeps coming up in my head.)
Thanks again to Mary, my good pal, who once again provided me with instructions and recipe on how to use my baby starter. Sure, I had to start them last night before I went to bed, but that took no time at all, just scoop out some starter, give it a little flour and water love, mix it, cover it (I used a dishtowel), and let it get to work!
I admit, my power starter this morning was definitely more like what I expected my entire starter to be like, thick, sticky and full of bubbles. It took a minute or two of elbow grease to mix all the dry ingredients into my muffins, and then again to add in the blueberries, but the muffins baked up big and golden, crunchy on top, though I'm sure the sprinkling of sugar didn't hurt. And as good as it was warm with my morning fruit in a glass, it was even better later in the day as an after work snack!
This weekend will see sour dough pancakes, or maybe even waffles, served to my boys for breakfast!
Now I just need to know - Mary, can I scoop out from my starter at any point during it's day to prep these muffins, now that I am on a 1x a day, morning, feeding for it?
