This is a great biscuit recipe for using Herman sourdough starter.
Bring Herman Starter to room temperature.
Stir together flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt.
Stir flour mixture and oil into Herman Starter. It will form a soft dough.
On a lightly floured surface knead dough until smooth. Pinch off small pieces of dough and shape into balls OR roll dough out and cut with a biscuit cutter. Place biscuits onto a greased baking sheet, cover and let rise in a warm place for 1 hour.
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
Bake in biscuits in the preheat oven for about 30 minutes or until golden. Serve warm.

The quality of the flour could make a real difference to your bread. Different brands do vary. Great taste or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard bread flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal dough , which not always rise as well as white bread.
To make this in a breadmaker , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the manufacturer’s instructions.
A dough’s first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then clear it off the next day.
