I Have Rye Sourdough On My Mind

Make your own rye sourdough starter

Two ways: 

1) Purchase a sourdough starter kit and instead of using wheat flour just use rye flour. 

2) Begin with a sourdough starter already well set and follow these steps: 
  • 1 cup of sourdough starter 
  • 1 cup of rye flour 
  • 1 cup of water 

Start using this new starter and each time that you need to feed it, continue with one part of rye and one part of water, wait a few days, use the starter, replenish it with new rye flour / water and keep going. The longer you add new rye flour, the sourdough will become a fully mature and flavorful rye sourdough starter, ready to be used in your baking creations.

How can you use your rye sourdough starter?

I have been working on this recipe for a while, it's some sort of muffin-bread-roll baking good but for sake of simplicity will call it a:

Rye Sourdough muffin
(I am using a muffin cast iron pan)


1/2 cup rye sourdough starter 

1-1/2 cups plant based milk (such as oat milk) 

2 cups rye flour 

1 tsp. brown sugar 

1 tsp. sea salt 

1/2 tsp. baking soda 

1/2 tsp. baking powder 

3 Tbsp. caraway seeds (optional)


  • In a large mixing bowl, combine 1/2 cup of rye sourdough starter, 1-1/2 cups of plant based milk, 2 cups of rye flour, and 1 tsp. of brown sugar. Mix well. 
  • Cover the bowl and let the mixture sit for about 12 hours, or until it has doubled in size. 
  • After the mixture has risen, add 1 tsp. of sea salt, 1/2 tsp. of baking soda, 1/2 tsp. of baking powder, and 3 Tbsp. of caraway seeds (if using). Mix well. 
  • Preheat your oven to 400°F (200°C). Grease your muffin pan, or line it with muffin cups. 
  • Scoop the batter into the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full. 
  • Bake the rolls in the preheated oven for 30-40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. 
  • Remove the rolls from the oven and let them cool in the pan for 5 minutes. Then, transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. 

Enjoy your freshly baked, delicious and flavorful rye sourdough muffins!
