Sourdough Brownies

This was the 2nd recipe I took to church for treats a few weeks ago. I loved that I could use my sourdough starter. These were a cakelike brownie and my class of boys liked the leftovers!

Sourdough Brownies

4 ounces baking chocolate
1/2 cup hot water
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup butter or coconut oil
2 cups sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped (Beth used pecans)
1-1/2 cups flour, sifted
1/2 teaspoon salt
1-1/2 cups fresh sourdough starter

1. Melt the chocolate in a double boiler. Mix in the hot water and bring the mixture to a boil. Stir in the baking soda until the mixture is foamy. Set aside and allow to cool until lukewarm (it is important the mixture not be too hot).

2. Cream together the butter (or coconut oil) and sugar until fluffy. Add eggs and mix well. Add the vanilla, chocolate mixture, and nuts. Gently add the flour and salt. Finally add the sourdough starter. Mix to combine but do not over-mix!

3. Pour into a greased 9x13-inch pan. Allow the batter to rise in a warm spot (70° to 85°F) for approximately 1/2 hour.

4. Bake brownies at 350°F for 35 to 40 minutes.
