How to Make Quick and Easy Sourdough Pimento Cheese Muffins With Your Discard (Air Fryer or Oven)

This is a great recipe to make when you want to feed your starter and use your discard to make something for dinner. The Pimento Cheese Muffins are easy to mix up in minutes, don't need to wait to rise--baking powder gives them lift--and can be made in the air fryer or oven. The muffins are moist and cheesy, and the pimento cheese flavor is there but not overwhelming. The muffins make great accompaniments to soups and salads, and they are quite tasty warm alongside your breakfast eggs. We like the muffins best with a big bowl of tomato or vegetable soup. Enjoy!

Sourdough Pimento Cheese Muffins -- Makes 12


1 cup of sourdough starter/discard

1/4 cup of canola oil

1/4 cup of milk

1 large egg

1/2 cup of pimiento cheese (prepared)

1 cup of white whole-wheat flour (or use all-purpose)

1/2 teaspoon of salt

1/4 cup of shredded cheddar cheese

1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder


Spritz 12 muffin cups with non-stick cooking spray. In a large bowl whisk together well the starter/discard, oil, milk, egg, and pimiento cheese. With a spoon stir in the flour, salt, cheddar cheese, and baking powder until blended into the wet mixture. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. (If you want a more pronounced sourdough flavor or just don't want to bake immediately, you can let the muffins sit and rise a bit. The standing/rising time isn't necessary, though.). Air fry the muffins at 320 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until golden brown and a pick inserted in a muffin comes out with no wet batter attached. If you want to bake the muffins in the regular oven, preheat the oven to 400 degrees and then bake the muffins for about 20 minutes or until golden brown and a pick inserted in a muffin comes out with no wet batter attached. Let the muffins cool a few minutes in their cups before removing them to cool completely.
