Buttermilk Biscuits

Nothing says “love” quite like a hot, fresh biscuit to accompany a meal.  Top them with some butter and fresh jam or honey, and you have a real treat!  The inside of these biscuits are soft and fluffy and the outside has just a little bit of crispness.  Last night I made these to go with my red beans and rice.  The best thing about these biscuits is that you really don’t have to plan ahead – no waiting for butter to come to room temperature or waiting time for dough to rise.  Mix, kneed and go!

Buttermilk Biscuits

2 1/4 cup flour

1 1/2 teaspoons salt

4 teaspoons baking powder

2 teaspoons sugar

1 stick unsalted, chilled butter, cut into pieces

1 cup buttermilk

3 tablespoons vegetable oil

Preaheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, mix together all dry ingredients.  Cut in butter until mixture looks like coarse bread crumbs with some small, pea-sized pieces.  Incorporate buttermilk until smooth.  Kneed on a lightly floured surface or with dough hook attachment on your stand mixer about 3-4 minutes.  Coat bottom of a 9×9 glass pan with the vegetable oil.  Roll dough into 1 1/2″ balls, flatten slightly, roll in oil once.  Bake approximately 30 minutes or until the tops are golden in color. Serve with butter, jam, honey or even gravy.

Eat well!

  1. Your biscuits look lovely. I’ve only come across biscuits being served with gravy and didn’t realise they were also served as a sweet with jam or honey, a bit like traditional English scones. I think I’ll have to try these out for myself and see how they compare with English scones

    • First of all, I love your website name! I do love English scones. If you have a good recipe, I would love to try it out. I order scones at various places but yet to try my hand at them. Let me know how the biscuits work for you. Last night I had butter and fresh strawberry jam (a blog post for another time) and they were heavenly.
