Sourdough Biscuits

A friend gave me a recipe for Sourdough Biscuits and my family liked them. Then I tried making them in my Bosch and now they love them. When I made them before the consistency was crumbly like one would expect buscuits to be. Made in the Bosch they were more like something out of a can (not sure my kids even know what biscuits out of a can taste like) We had biscuits with Chicken-A-La-King the first night, then biscuits with butter for breakfast the next day, and biscuit pizza's for lunch. I plan to make these for Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Sourdough Biscuits

1 1/2 cups unbleached flour
1 1/2 cups spelt flour
2 cups sourdough starter
2 tsp sucanat
3 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 tsp Real salt
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter
1/3 cup buttermilk

In a plastic bowl mix 1 cup unbeached flour, 1 cup spelt flour and 2 cups sourdough starter.(I put it right in the Bosch and stir with a spatula not the metal bar) Leave for 7 to 12 hours. Mix the remaining flours with the sucanat, baking powder, baking soda, and salt and add them to the bowl. Cut in the butter. Blend lightly. Add the buttermilk slowly until the mixture is right for rolling. You might need to add more flour if it is too wet.

Roll out into 1/2 inch thickness on a floured surface. Dip biscuit cutter in flour then cut biscuits. Place on buttered baking pan. Brush with melted butter. Let rise for 1 hour.

  1. Your bisciuts were awesome, Mom. Can you make more with gravy? -JD

  2. The biscusts were soft and tasted good. Pizza biscuists were short lived, one bite and it's gone. You better make gravy!
