Sourdough Biscuits & Gravy

Ingredients

1 cup of flour

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

2 teaspoons baking powder

1/3 cup of margarine or butter, cold

1 cup sourdough starter, room temperature*

* If you do not presently have a sourdough starter, either make your own sourdough starter or purchase Packaged Sourdough Starter Mix by mail-order.  The night before using your sourdough starter, remove from refrigerator and let come to room temperature.  Then feed the starter with flour and water.  Let this sit eight (8) hours or preferably overnight.  It is now ready to use in your sourdough pancakes!  Learn how to feed and maintain your Sourdough Starter.
