Our inspiration recipe:
Sourdough Donuts (Under the Highchair)
1/2 cup starter
2 tablespoons oil
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 cup buttermilk
(plus all the powdered sugar, glaze, fillings, and/or sprinkles you can handle)
Prepare a deep fryer or skillet for frying.
Line a plate or try with paper towels and set aside.
Heat the oil to 360 degrees.
In a large bowl, whisk together the baking powder, baking soda, flour, sugar, cinnamon and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the starter, oil, egg and milk.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and mix together until incorporated.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured counter and knead about 3 times, or until the dough is well incorporated.
Roll the dough out to a 2" thickness and cut with a donut cutter.
Fry the donuts until golden brown, about 1 minute on each side.
Drain on a paper towel and top with whatever you like.
Thanks so much for playing with us and stay tuned to see what we'll be baking next month!
