Sourdough Cheddar Biscuits


These sourdough cheddar biscuits are fluffy, tangy, rich, and of course, cheesy. Add the optional garlic powder and it will remind you of those famous restaurant garlic-cheddar biscuits.


  • ½ cup cold lard or butter, cut into small chunks
  • 2½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ cup sourdough starter
  • 1 tablespoon sweetener
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¾ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder, optional
  • ½ cup (packed) shredded sharp cheddar


  1. Prepare the dough ahead of time. Cut lard into the flour until it is in small pieces. Stir in the starter, sweetener, and milk until a soft dough just comes together. Cover and place in a warm spot for 7-12 hours.
  2. Preheat oven to 400°F. Combine salt, baking powder, baking soda, black pepper, and garlic powder in a very small bowl until evenly mixed. Sprinkle dry mixture over fermented dough, add cheese, and knead until it comes together into a cohesive, soft mass.
  3. Roll the dough out to ½-inch thick. Cut with 2- to 3-inch biscuit cutter and place the biscuits in a 10-inch oven-proof skillet, one next to another.
  4. Bake 20-30 minutes, or until golden brown on the top and bottom. Serve hot with butter or drippings.
