OMGosh I have been busy! I wanted to bake up some sourdough biscuits this morning at the request of my kiddos. Of course I couldn’t just whip them up, I had to make a formula first! Well I was halfway through mixing when my boss called and said, ” Come to work stat!” Jeesh! So I said, “Hey, I have some sourdough biscuits on the way!” So these biscuits might look a bit hurried, but they were really good and I snuck a couple to work….my boss likes it when I do that.
Sourdough Biscuits are so good! As many of you know, I have been primarily working on new forumulas (recipes) using my sourdough starter at 100% hydration. 100% hydration means that when you feed your starter, you always use equal weight of water and flour.
If you want to read about my great day, you will have to read to the bottom of this post. If you want to read about what the heck Pi Li Li’s are start here:
Pi Li Li’s or Pee Lee Lee’s, whichever way to want to spell it,( it sounds like the second version) are little fried pillows of dough. These are a sourdough version of a fried doughnut that grandma made. Quickly made, rolled in sugar, or cinnamon/sugar, powdered sugar or dunked in a honey glaze, they are great for a Sunday breakfast.
I have made some unusual baked items while living in Hawaii. I had a sourdough recipe for sweet potato muffins and one of the nut pickers gave me some purple sweet potatoes which are very popular here. So I baked up some purple muffins!
Need a fun recipe to help use up the extra sourdough starter? How about sourdough tortillas? Something fun –If you want a chance at a free sourdough starter, read to the bottom of this post.–
