Recipe, Modern Sourdough/Bannock Biscuits ???

 Modern Sourdough/Bannock Biscuits??? 
 Although passable, this recipe is not nearly as good as SODA BREAD and, as previously explained, because of the addition of baking powder, it is not a true sourdough. And, because it is formed into biscuits, it is definitely not  bannock (the word bannock indicates (means) a loaf of quick bread).
                   1/2 cup sourdough starter
                   1 cup warm water (no hotter than 90F)
                   2 1/2 cups unsifted flour,
      2 cups wheat flour and 1/2 cup Graham flour, corn flour
                                                other flour
                   3/4 tsp. salt
                   1 tsp. baking powder
                   1/2 tsp. soda
           (if more soda is used, with this recipe, bread will turn yellow; must be well mixed).
1. Mix starter, water, and 1 cup of the flour in a large bowl, at least 8 hours before baking time. Cover bowl, and keep at room temperature.
            2. Turn out on floured cloth or bread board.
3. Combine salt, baking powder, soda and the remaining 1/2 cup of flour, and sift over top of the dough; mix into dough with hands, kneading lightly.
4 .Roll out dough to 1/2 inch thickness, and cut with a round cutter. Place rounds in a greased, 9-inch square pan close together; let them rise for about 1/2 hour, then bake in a preheated, 375 F oven 30-35 minutes.
