  • Total Time: 1 hr 5 mins




  • 1/2 cup of butter, melted and cooled
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of sourdough starter discard
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 tsp almond extract
  • 1 3/4 cup of flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp of baking soda
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon powder


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 1/2 cup of cold butter cut into cubes

Optional Topping

  • chopped almonds


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Spray a 13 by 9-inch baking pan with non-stick spray. Line the baking pan with parchment paper, and spray it again. Set this aside.
  2. To make the crumble topping, combine all the crumble ingredients into a bowl, and use your hands, to squeeze the ingredients together until a crumble forms. Alternatively, you could add this to a stand mixer. Combine the ingredients with a paddle attachment set to low speed until your crumble starts to form. Remove the crumble and use your hands to press it together, then crumble it into large pieces. Place the crumble in the fridge, until it’s ready to use.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, or stand mixer bowl, combine eggs and sugar until you achieve a light and fluffy texture. Add in your melted and cooled butter, sourdough starter, sour cream, vanilla, and almond extract. Mix until well combined.
  4. In another large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Then add in your dry ingredients 1/2 cup at a time. Make sure to not overmix. Pour the dough into the prepped pan and smooth it out so that it’s evenly spread. The dough will be sticky, so spray your spatula before using it to spread.
  5. Remove crumble from fridge and sprinkle onto batter.
  6. Bake this for 30-35 minutes. Then remove and place on a wire cooling rack. Slice and enjoy when cooled.
