Easy Flakey Sourdough Biscuits

Another week, another sourdough starter recipe idea. This week, I made sourdough biscuits! They’re an easy quick bread to make and come together for breakfast, brunch, lunch or breakfast for dinner any day of the week! They’re so easy to make, so flaky to eat and just so good all-around.

The sourdough really shines through with these biscuits. It adds a flavor you just can’t describe other than really good. 🙂 And the best way to eat these is with some fresh Kerrygold butter. Not a plug, just love their butter!

Do you have a favorite biscuit recipe? I’d love to make it! Share it with me in the comments below and I’ll make it next! Happy baking!

  • Print


  • 8 tablespoons cold unsalted butter
  • 3/4 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup sourdough starter


  1. Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt and mix until combined. Using a cheese grater, grate the very cold butter into the flour and mix together.
  3. Make a little well in the middle of your flour. Pour your sourdough starter in the middle of the flour and mix it together with your hands. Mix until just combined (don’t over mix). img_9019_jpg
  4. Pour biscuit dough onto the counter and form it into a rectangle about an inch high. Take the dough and fold it over in half. Reshape into a rectangle and fold over again the opposite way. Do this 6 times.
  5. Pat the dough until its about 1 inch thick and cut your biscuit rounds using a round cookie cutter, and place them on an ungreased pan.
  6. Bake them at 425 degrees for 17-18 minutes.img_9025_jpg
  7. Serve them immediately hot and flakey! Enjoy!img_9036_jpgimg_9037_jpg
