Sourdough Discard Doughnuts

These are fluffy cake-style baked sourdough doughnuts, generously dipped in a cinnamon sugar coating.

The batter

In a bowl mix together the flour, spices, baking powder and baking soda. Whisk the milk, discard starter, sugar, egg, butter, and vanilla, and milk until well combined.

The batter

Add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Fold until it's combined. You can now bake the doughnuts straight away, or ferment the batter first.


Brush the still warm doughnuts with melted butter all over, then dip them into a bowl of cinnamon sugar, generously coating all sides of the doughnut.
