I was introduced to sourdough by my friend Rachel and have been baking sourdough bread since. For a change I decided to try these biscuits and needless to say they were a total hit with kids. When using sourdough you have to plan ahead since the dough takes a while to rise. This is an easy biscuit and is sure to be loved by all. Off to the recipe. Recipe from here.
Fermented Sourdough Biscuits
- all purpose flour - 2 1/2 cups
- butter - 1/2 cup
- honey - 1 tbsp
- milk - 1 cup (can use buttermilk, kefir, yogurt)
- sourdough starter - 1/2 cup
- baking soda - 1/2 tsp
- baking powder - 1 tsp
- salt - 3/4 tsp
Cut the butter into all purpose flour until the mixture resembles crumbs. Add honey, milk and starter and mix using a spatula. Allow to sit until doubled. I left it overnight.
Sprinkle baking soda, baking powder and salt and knead it into the dough gently. Pat the dough on a floured surface and cut using a biscuit cutter dipped in flour.
Place the biscuits on a greased cast iron skillet and bake in a preheated 400F oven for about 20 - 30 minutes until the top is golden brown and biscuit is done.
The dough is sticky to work with.
