Not only did the bread look good and sound intriguing, its recipe surfaced just as I was contemplating whether to use more of my newest sourdough starter or simply refresh it. Obviously, I opted for the former--my love of bread is too strong to resist that siren song for long--and am glad I did. Because it contains a good amount of sugar, especially for sourdough, and is dotted with semi-sweet chocolate bits, the loaf isn't actually sour. It's not too sweet, either, perhaps making the dark chocolate richness that much better. I opted to replace the raisins with toasted walnuts (my new favorite addition to sourdough), although I'm sure the sweet, chewy gems are an excellent addition.

VMF 6-10: Sweet and Sour
Vegan MoFo is that it helps to draw one's attention to blogs one may not necessarily frequent, if even know existed. This creates happy discoveries for me each autumn, when the MoFo spirit is in the air, the blogosphere enthusiastically a-buzz with vegan recipe-sharing. Just over a week into this year's event, I have already bookmarked more than a few recipes from fellow participants. In fact, I've already tried one, too, and it's a good one: Sourdough Chocolate Bread from Cook's Hideout.
