Sourdough gets into everything I bake these days. And I'm not one bit sad about it. I picked strawberries yesterday and decided to make a shortcake. I looked up several sourdough shortcake recipes -but they all looked too complicated so I dug out my mama's shortcake recipe and revised it for sourdough.
I honestly had no idea if it would raise or be edible but I thought it was worth a try. And well. It turned out!
1 cup sourdough starter
2 cups flour
1 cup water
Mix together, cover and ferment on the counter for 4 hours.
The mixture with be thick.
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg1/4 tsp salt
1 tsp. vanilla
Mix together and pour into a greased 9" pan.
Sprinkle with sanding sugar.
Let rest 30 minutes before baking.
Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes.
