Time to Feed Your Starter? Make Sourdough Apricot-Pecan Buns--No Baking Powder Needed

If you have sourdough discard you need to use, try making some simple Sourdough Apricot-Pecan Buns. The little buns are a tad crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside. They're studded with sweet dried apricots and crunchy pecans and are great "as is" or with butter or even cream cheese. The buns rely on sourdough starter/discard for leavening, so you won't need baking powder or soda to make them. You will need to let the buns rise for at least an hour before baking them. I bake the buns in my air fryer to avoid heating up the kitchen with the large oven, but, if you want to use the oven, bake the buns at 350 degrees for about 20 minutes. You can glaze or ice the buns, dust them with powdered sugar, or leave them plain. The buns are great for breakfast and/or as accompaniments to coffee and tea. Enjoy!
