This made a cross between a sweet bread and a biscuit. I too had to add atleast a cup or more of flour. But, the "biscuit" came out delicious. This would be a good recipe to roll out sprinkle with cinnamon and raisins roll up and slice, so I may try that in the future. I got 10 biscuits that I cut out with a cookie cutter, next time I will roll into balls and place in a pan so that when they cook and rise they will touch so we can pull them apart. All in all a good recipe, with the addition of flour, to use up the starter I have. Thank you for posting tranch!
