I don’t know about you, but I absolutely hate the idea of throwing away any of my sourdough discard. If I’m going to remove a portion of my sourdough starter every single time I feed it, then I would rather cook with it than to discard it. I’m not going to lie though. Some mornings call for something easier such as sourdough pancakes because I am not a morning person. However, sometimes a good fluffy hot biscuit with butter and honey drizzled all over it is just what this mama needs. This recipe for sourdough biscuits using sourdough discard is my favorite biscuit recipe ever, and it pairs well with a hot breakfast or homemade egg frittatas.
I am always looking for ways to use my sourdough starter discard. Since I feed my starter first thing in the mornings, it only makes sense to use my sourdough discard to cook breakfast for my family. Sourdough pancakes are always quick and easy, and pancakes are a household favorite around here. However, sometimes my husband appreciates a full hot breakfast which includes sausage from a deer that he killed during hunting season, fresh farm eggs that we gather from the coop every morning, and hot, fluffy, sourdough biscuits made from scratch.
Sourdough biscuits made with sourdough discard are a treat!
The taste and the texture are heavenly. However, this requires a little planning because this recipe involves mixing all the wet ingredients the night before and allowing them to sit out overnight. Just remember to feed your starter after you remove some of it for your recipe, even if that means you ended up feeding it twice in one day.
There are plenty of quick biscuit recipes out there, but this particular recipe requires a small bit of planning on your part. The recipe is super simple. There is absolutely nothing difficult about it at all! But it does require mixing some ingredients that need to sit overnight. Trust me! If you are not a morning person either, you will appreciate this recipe more because there is no hard work to be done in the morning. Try serving them with fresh fruit preserves or butter and honey.
