These savory sourdough cheddar biscuits are simply to die for. Complete with flaky layers of deliciousness that just taste impeccable with the inclusion of a sourdough starter discard, for that subtle yet scrumptious tangy finish.

  • Total Time: 25 mins
  • Yield: 18 biscuits 1x


  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/8 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 cup sourdough discard
  • 1/2 cup cold, salted butter
  • 1/4 cup cold water

Egg Wash

  • 1 large egg
  • 23 tbsp milk


  1. Combine flour, salt, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder in a large bowl.
  2. Use a butter knife to carefully cut the cold butter, until you’re left with smaller pieces. Add this to your bowl of ingredients.
  3. Add shredded cheese, egg, and sourdough discard. Mix well, then if you find that the biscuit dough is a little tough, simply add 1/4 cup of cold water to moisten the dough enough to handle.
  4. Roll out the dough until it’s around 3/4 inch thick, and start cutting the biscuits using a 2-inch biscuit cutter. Don’t worry if you don’t have a biscuit cutter, simply use the rim of a glass or cup for similar results!
  5. Place biscuits on a baking sheet and brush them with a milky egg wash. Bake the biscuits in a preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are a nice golden brown.
