In Sourdough Dead, Kayla makes a cake that looks like Jason’s clam chowder in a sourdough bread bowl, a dish she can’t get enough of. She even uses sourdough starter in the batter.
I’m not nearly as good a baker as Kayla, but I attempted a version of the cake. My cake was made from a box, but otherwise it’s similar to Kayla’s recipe. I baked the cake in a glass bowl, flipped it over, and sliced off the top. I took out part of the insides and scooped in a mixture of whipped cream and pineapple chunks to represent the chowder (the pineapple represents potatoes). Lastly, I added green sprinkles on top of the whipped cream mixture to look like parsley.
