Shelley from C Mom Cook, Jenni from The Gingered Whisk, and Ruth from The Crafts of Mommyhood have been having so much fun finding new and creative uses for our sourdough starters, and we want to share this fun with you!
This month we have decided to make DONUTS!!! You may use any recipe that you choose (as long as it involves sourdough), and simply post it on March 20th, 2012. We are going to use this recipe, but you may use whichever recipe you find that you like.
We want you to participate with us, even if you don't have a blog!!! Just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a picture of what you made, your name, and whatever else you think is important, and we will publish your wonderful creations here!
We have decided to make a new and super fun group called Sourdough Surprises! Each month we will showcase a unique recipe to use your starter in, and we want YOU to make it with us!!
We are so excited and hope that you will join us! And spread the word!!!
We loved making sourdough donuts - they were so easy, and so delicious we couldn't stop eating them!

Sourdough Donuts Recipe (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!
