Miners who had been around awhile were called "Sourdoughs" because they were there long enough to let their bread starter grow. Here is a fun recipe for a Gold Rush party!

 Sourdough Sams

1/2 cup Active Sourdough Starter (see recipe below)

1/2 cup Sugar

2 tablespoon Shortening

2 cup Flour

1 teaspoon Baking Powder

1 Egg

1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg

1/4 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/3 cup Buttermilk or Sour Milk (to make sour milk put small amount of lemon juice into regular milk)

Sift all the dry ingredients, then stir that into the liquid until it is good enough to roll out .Now roll and cut with a regular donut cutter. Then heat some oil in a deep fryer to 390 degrees F and fry. (We use a skillet and do a few at a time. Mom needs to do this part!) Makes about 15 - 20 doughnuts with holes. Just before serving dust with powdered or cinnamon sugar.


Sourdough Starter

Yield: 1 servings

2 cup Unbleached Flour

Milk To Make Thick Batter

Mix flour and milk to make a thick batter. Let stand uncovered for four or five days, or until it begins working. You will need a scalded container to do this in. Which is basically one that has had boiling water poured in it to sterilize it!
