Sourdough Biscuits

If you've never had a sourdough starter, I highly recommend it. It gives bread a flavor and texture that you won't get anywhere else, and it is very easy to start and maintain. There's also something about baking bread with just three ingredients (flour, salt, and water) that I like.

You can use the starter for breakfast too, though there are more than three ingredients involved! I've been experimenting with different breakfast items, and have settled on a biscuit recipe that the family likes. These biscuits are soft and tender while having a little more texture than traditional buttermilk biscuits.

Sourdough Biscuits
Yields 12 large biscuits

Ingredients
1c sourdough starter
1c milk
~3c flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 tbsp sugar
1/4c vegetable oil

Directions
The night before, mix starter, milk, and 1 c of the flour. Whisk until smooth, cover, and let sit on the counter till the morning.

Next morning, preheat oven to 475F.

Sprinkle over the sponge the salt, sugar, baking soda, and vegetable oil. Mix to incorporate. Add flour 1/2c at a time, folding the mixture, until the dough just comes together. It should be very, very loose (you shouldn't be able to pick it up with your hands).

Sprinkle a generous amount of flour on a counter, and tip out the dough. Dust the top of the dough with more flour, and begin folding the dough. Fold the dough in half, then press it down to flatten. Repeat until the dough just starts providing some resistance (about 4-5 folds typically). Sprinkle on additional flour only if the dough starts to stick. You want a dough that barely has any structure but that doesn't "run" on the counter like a batter.

Flatten the dough until it is about 3/4" thick, cut biscuits out of the dough, and place on a baking sheet. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden brown and delicious.

Serve with your favorite biscuit toppings!

Those look great. Now for the dumb question..I cook just never baked. How do I make sour dough starter? My wife and I had sourdough pancakes in the mountains and I know we'd both enjoy doing them at home. I appreciate you taking the time to explain either here or feel free to PM me. Thanks and have a great weekend!

It's very simple, but it does take a week or so to get it going right.
