Whole Wheat Sourdough Biscuits, simple no roll and no cut!

Welcome to Our Sunday Café, we are pleased you stopped by for a visit. Today we are offering another delicious recipe from our kitchen. We hope you enjoy it as much as we did…

I think I have mentioned before that I am a lazy biscuit baker. I love biscuits but hate the mess of rolling and cutting the dough. So you can imagine my delight when I came across this biscuit recipe. Measure, stir, shape, rise and bake.....to make No roll and cut, Simple Whole Wheat Sourdough Biscuits!

1 c sourdough starter - room temperature

Stir the honey into the starter. Combine the dry ingredients in a large bowl, add the starter and honey mixture. Mix well, the dough will be firm.

Coat a small skillet with the butter.

Pinch off pieces of the biscuit dough, shape into a basic biscuit shape, place in the skillet.

  1. This is a new one. I don't believe I have ever had sour dough biscuits. And I'm pretty sure I've never had sour dough whole wheat. Combine it all and it sounds marvelous!

  2. I am going to try this right now... I will return and report. :)

  3. Yes! Very nice. Worth eating. Satisfying. Not fluffy. :) Thank you for sharing this!

  4. Ours were fluffy, but a dense fluffy I think due to the whole wheat flour. They do take a bit of a rising time before baking. I had leftover biscuits with butter and jam for lunch, they were quite good. I think sifting the flour will help with lightening up the texture. Thanks so much for sharing your experience!

  5. those biscuits sound and look amazing! Love that its wheat sourdough
