I don’t know about you, but when I am feeding and discarding my sourdough culture, I hate not using it. Here is a simple way to use up that little bit of culture instead of dumping it down the drain.
½ cup of sourdough starter
½ cup water, plus more when needed
½ tsp salt
1 ¾ cups unbleached all-purpose flour, plus more as needed
Goat cheese of your choice
Dark chocolate of your choice
Mix (knead) all the ingredients for a maximum of 20-25 minutes in the bread machine, until the dough is smooth and satiny. Watch the dough form for the first 3 or 4 minutes and adjust the consistency as needed with additional water or flour, added 1 tablespoon at a time.
Proof dough overnight (8 to 12 hours) at room temperature, about 70°F. Roll dough out on a cutting board until it is about ¼ inch thick.
Cut into squares of 5×5 (or bigger if you want. Put a spoonful of goat cheese in center of square and add a piece of dark chocolate. Fold over so that you make a triangle. Seal edges and cover edges with a little egg white. Drop into a deep fryer and flip over several times until dough takes on a light brown color. Remove and let cool.
This is a quick and easy dessert that will surprise your friends. The combination with the cheese and chocolate is amazing. The fun thing with this is that you can go crazy with experimenting. Or if you just have a little dough left over this is where you can use it.
