    Got a sourdough/buttermilk biscuit recipe from Bassman that I had to give a whirl this morning.

    Here it is ready to cut in the sourdough/buttermilk

    Rolled out

    Cut and in the pan

    After sitting in a warm oven for 30 minutes

    Elk all floured and ready to go

    Baked up

    And my breakfast

    Overall - VERY GOOD! They were lite and airy, not so much flaky like regular biscuits. The "sour" taste was incredible, and they are excellent with both gravy and blackraspberry jelly.

    Including the recipe here for you bread heads.

    Bassman Sourdough Buttermilk Biscuits

    2 cups all purpose flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    1 teaspoon baking powder
    1/2 cup buttter
    1/2 cup buttermilk
    1 cup sourdough starter

    Melted butter or margarine

    Sift together flour, salt, baking soda and baking powder. Using a
    pastry blender or a fork, cut in butter until mixture resembles
    cornmeal. Mix together buttermilk and starter. With a fork, stir
    in starter mixture until a soft dough is formed that cleans the sides
    of the bowl. turn out onto floured surface and knead gently for
    30 seconds. Roll dough to form a circle 1/2 inch thick. Cut into
    biscuits with a 2-3 inch round cutter. Place in a lightly greased
    baking pan with sides touching. Brush tops with melted butter.
    Cover and let rest for 30 minutes. Bake at 450 degrees for 12 - 15
    minutes or until tops are golden brown. Makes about 12 biscuits.

    My modifications
    Didn't have buttermilk, so I used regular milk and 1 t apple cider vinegar.
    Baked at 450 for 15 minutes.

    Thanks for checking out my post.
