  • 1/2 cup butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup sourdough starter discard can be unfed and straight from fridge
  • 3/4 cup liquid coconut oil
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 3/4 cup pumpkin puree 1 can
  • 3 cups all purpose flour or bread flour
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 3/4 teaspoon ginger


  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare 2 loaf pans and set them aside.
  • Now grab a medium sized bowl and add the flour, salt, baking powder, baking soda, and spices and whisk together.
  • Put butter into the bowl of your stand mixer. Add the brown sugar, and mix them together thoroughly.
  • Now add the egg, sourdough starter, coconut oil, vanilla extract, and the pumpkin puree.
  • Beat the pumpkin mixture on low until it's all nicely mixed together.
  • Now start to add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients a little at a time. Beat on medium speed for 2 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl a few times.
  • Take that lovely batter and divide it between the 2 prepared loaf pans.
  • Smooth down the top, and pop it in the preheated oven.
  • Bake for 45 to 55 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
