Jalapeño Cheddar Sourdough

“This robust, spicy combination is always a winner – but if you don’t like the spice or you’re making it for the kids, just leave the jalapeños out for a delicious, cheesy sourdough full of flavor!” – Kate

Cinnamon Raisin Sourdough

“When I make this sourdough cinnamon raisin bread I have to hide it. And I don’t mean like tuck it in the cupboard, I mean, like…HIDE it. I literally have to bake it when the house is empty and wrap it twice before stuffing it in the cupboard up above the microwave, because I’m the only one who knows that hiding spot exists. I swear Kevy and the kids are like drug-sniffing dogs, but with sourdough. They walk in the house and just know I baked some of that goodness.” – Ally

Apple Pie Sourdough Bread

“This Apple Pie Sourdough Bread is best of classic combo with sourdough dough and apple pie filling.” – Swathi

Bacon, Smoked Gouda & Hatch Green Chile Sourdough

“I really loved the combination of smoked gouda and green chile in my last loaf and I wanted to expand on the savoriness by adding some chopped bacon. The results did not disappoint! The smokiness from the cheese combined with the roasted and earthy notes from the green chile combine extremely well with the bacon.” – Brandon

Olive Roasted Garlic Lemon Rosemary Sourdough Crown

“The end result is a roughly 2-pound sourdough crown dotted with savory bites of briny olives and earthy, sweet roasted garlic. The toppings add a nice flavor, but if you really like rosemary, you could toss some into the mix-ins in case the bits sprinkled on top aren’t enough for you. Same goes for the lemon zest. This is my favorite sourdough bake to date!” – Jenyu

Pumpkin Sourdough Bread

“A loaf of pumpkin sourdough bread made with pumpkin puree, sourdough discard, and the classic pumpkin spice blend. It’s a perfect fall treat and a great way to use your extra sourdough discard.” – Kristin

Rosemary Sourdough Bread

“This rosemary sourdough bread recipe is crusty on the outside, chewy on the inside and packed full of rosemary flavor. Fragrant herbs are baked into this glorious round loaf.” – Lisa

How to Make Coffee Sourdough Bread

“Making your own bread at home is a process. A delicious one at that. And for us coffee lovers, we’re introducing coffee sourdough bread.” – Bethany

Chocolate and Cherry Sourdough Recipe

“By adding cherries, we have taken the beloved combination of bread and chocolate in a new direction. A variation of our Sourdough Master Recipe, this dough is only moderately sweet; the natural sourness of the dough tempers the sweet character of the inclusions.” – Modernist Cuisine

Sourdough Barmbrack: Irish Raisin Bread

“Traditional Irish barmbrack is a soft and sweet yeasted fruit bread. Using a sourdough starter adds richness for a full-flavored cinnamon and raisin bread. Sourdough barmbrack is perfect served fresh from the oven with a cup of tea. It also makes amazing toast.” – Emilie

Sundried Tomato and Parmesan Sourdough Bread

“Delicious tangy sun dried tomato and parmesan sourdough bread. You can eat this bread as is or you can make it as toast with butter which will enhance the flavor more.” – Swathi

Walnut & Blue Cheese Sourdough Bread Recipe

“When adding the yummy bits to your bread, in this case walnuts and blue cheese, it is important to do this at the end of kneading. You want to keep your blue cheese chunks large and the walnuts whole. If you add them too early the cheese will melt and then just be dispersed through the bread. I prefer to see the chunks of cheese so I can enjoy them.” – Lizzie

Fruit and Nut Sourdough Bread Recipe

“Elevate your sourdough game with delicious fruit and nut sourdough bread. This sourdough is so chewy and airy, and has a signature crunchy crackly crust. It is so tasty and packed with dried figs, raisins and crunchy walnuts, and topped with pumpkin and sunflower seeds. The best part? You only need to put in 15-20 minutes of actual work to make this bread. So easy.” – Sam
