These quick, easy, and buttery sourdough biscuits are the perfect way to use up some sourdough discard when feeding your sourdough starter. They can be mixed, baked, and on the dinner or breakfast table in less than 30 minutes!
Even if you don’t have the time or inclination to make sourdough bread from scratch, a sourdough starter is the secret to the most delicious pancakes, waffles, and biscuits you’ll ever taste!
Sourdough starter can also be used in desserts like my easy Pumpkin Maple Sourdough Cake or rich and decadent Sourdough Chocolate Cake with Cream Cheese Frosting. I’ve also experimented with adding it to quick breads like my favorite sourdough banana bread. So many possibilities!
Although it takes a bit of time to make a sourdough starter from scratch, it’s easy to do. And once you have a sourdough starter going, you can keep it for a lifetime or even longer if your family decides to carry on the tradition – how cool is that!?
I also think that creating a sourdough starter could be a really fun and educational science project to do with kids. I’m really looking forward to sharing these things with my daughter when she is old enough.
