Sourdough Discard Poppy Seed Lemon Quick Bread

In a rush? You can skip straight to my sourdough discard poppy seed lemon quick bread recipe at my tumblr. Or you can jump to my Just the Basics section.

Let’s face it: sourdough starters take a lot of work if you want to keep them active for artisan-style breads. If you feed your starter daily rather than keeping it in the fridge, you probably have a lot of discard that you need to use up.

Rather than trashing your discard, why not use it to bake quick bread?

My poppy seed lemon quick bread is a fun and tangy dessert that takes almost no effort to make. Just stir together the ingredients, pour the batter into a pan, and bake. Minimal mess and minimal work but maximum flavor.

I love making bread, but some days I'd rather spend more time eating bread and less time making bread. On those days, I make Cinnamon Quick Bread and use up my sourdough starter.
