Sourdough pie

This is another instant sourdough dish that’s easy and yummy.

Before making this recipe, make your new starter for next time as follows:

Remove any crust from the top of the starter. Stir down the starter. Remove ¾ cup of starter and put in a mixing bowl. Add 1 ½ cups whole wheat flour and ¾ cup water to the bowl and mix well. This will be your new starter so put it in a quart wide-mouth jar and cover with cloth as before.  You will have 1 cup of starter remaining to use in the recipe below.



1 cup starter

3 eggs

2 t baking powder

3 t melted butter

1/2 t each salt, garlic powder, onion powder, thyme and parsley


Fill your pie dish with meat and sauce.  Pour the pie batter over the top of the meat.  Bake in a hot oven for 20 minutes until the batter has set.


You can also make sweet pies using this recipe – instead of herbs add spices to the batter and instead of meat, fill the dish with stewed fruit or zobo flowers.


The savoury version is taken from the excellent free Sourdough ebook at
