Sourdough biscuits are a quick sourdough bread that makes an excellent bun to accompany any meal. They are perfect for mini sandwiches that kids seem to love. And it’s a great way to use up a lot of extra sourdough starter, without taking the time to make a full loaf of sourdough bread.
It is the addition of baking soda is what distinguishes this biscuit from a typical sourdough bread. The recipe uses the rising power of soda that is balanced by the natural acidity of sourdough. All you need is a healthy sourdough starter to make these quick biscuits.

- 1 - 1½ cups flour
- 1 Tbsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking soda
