I love blueberries. I actually planted three blueberry bushes earlier this year, and I can’t wait to see the harvest next year so that I can bake all the blueberry goods such as these blueberry sourdough biscuits. I am always experimenting with my sourdough recipes to see what I can come up with, and this time my girls think that I knocked it out of the park!
I bake about three loaves of bread each week. I bake a loaf of sourdough sandwich bread and two loaves of sourdough garlic cheese bread (which is basically my sandwich bread recipe with added garlic salt and shredded cheese). We eat a slice or two of the garlic cheese bread with dinner almost every night. Since I am baking at least three days a week, this means that I feed my sourdough starter daily and store it on the kitchen counter. I have a lot of sourdough discard to find something to do with. I hate the idea of actually discarding it, so instead I cook it.
There are so many yummy things that I make with my sourdough discard, and since I feed my starter in the mornings most of the time, it usually ends up being something that I cook for breakfast. Sometimes it may be sourdough pancakes or sourdough waffles, but we love sourdough biscuits too. Biscuits are a favorite around here because they are so versatile. Biscuits and jelly, sausage and gravy biscuits, biscuits and honey, with bacon and eggs, and even biscuits with CHOCOLATE GRAVY! HELLO!… the possibilities are actually endless, and I probably sound like a commercial for the Bubba Gump Shrimp Co. I have to tell you though that these blueberry sourdough biscuits are amazing.
People are so intimidated by cooking with sourdough. I’m not sure why. Yes there are some very involved recipes out there, but this farm mama doesn’t have time for all that. Sourdough recipes have to be easy if I’m going to make them, and if you have ever made my sourdough biscuit recipe then this will be a breeze for you. All you have to do is use my current biscuit recipe and add blueberries. Be ready to make a few tiny adjustments only if needed.
Want the recipe? It’s super simple! Check out my sourdough biscuit recipe and follow those directions. The only difference is… add as many blueberries as you may want when you are mixing your ingredients the night before. I add two cups of frozen or fresh blueberries. It could not be easier! When you wake up the next morning to mix up the rest of the ingredients, the batter may look a little grey or purple, but this is normal. Trust me! You will love these with some warm butter!
