1 cup Herman Sourdough Starter
This made a lovely soft, light and fluffy dough. Really east to work and handle, I think I could user it in lots of diferent ways, I used Fliimsy's idea for cinnamon rolls this time. There was a little bit of a bitter taste from the baking soda (so not 5*) so I'm going to reduce the amount next time and hope I will still get good results. Thanks for the recipe.
OMG I don't know what I did wrong but they did not rise very much. The only thing I can think of is that I didn't let the starter sit out long enough to room temperature. After only 20 minutes in the oven, they were almost burnt. I had to throw them out. Elly May Clampett's looked better than these!
Not only does this make good biscuits, it also makes great Cinnamon Buns.
Roll out the dough and sprinkle with cinnamon and both white and brown sugars. Roll up and slice. Delicious!
I loved this recipe. It was a wonderful way to use my extra Herman starter.
I used a regular sourdough starter and baked for a bit shorter. Tasted great!!!!
I changed the instructions some. Used half whole wheat flour & half all purpose flour. I increased the oven temp to 400 degrees dropped the amount of time for baking. And skipped letting it rise. They turned out pretty good. I also tried letting them rise for an hour and baking at the higher temp. They turned out a little lighter.
My family loved this. They smelled great while they were cooking. The texture is a little cakey. I had to add around 1/2 cup more flour to get the right consistency but the flavor is terrific.
great recipe... and so easy! I line the baking sheet with parchment paper 1st and don't even have to wash the sheet... I do find that if you are rolling them out, you need to add about 1/4 - 1/3 cup more flour... I've never tried these with whole wheat flour, but I think I will next time
