Buttermilk biscuit recipe
Life is better with homemade biscuits!
It doesn't take too much time or ingredients to make homemade biscuits. So if you haven't tried to make any yet then give these a go. These ones are not rolled out and cut to size. You are scooping out some dough, forming it a little bit and tossing it in the cast iron to bake.
When we go up to my husband's parents house for Christmas breakfast this is what I am requested to bring every year.
- 1/4 cup lard or butter
- 1 3/4 cup all purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 3/4 cup buttermilk
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Melt lard or butter in cast iron skillet. I have used more than the recipe calls for leaving the extra in the skillet.
- Mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt in a bowl.
- Add buttermilk, mix well.
- Pour in melted lard or butter into mixture, mix well.
- Shape dough into balls. Arrange in skillet turning to coat dough with remaining lard or butter. Flatten slightly.
- I ended up with seven biscuits.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown
Have with butter and jelly, your choice of gravy, or with some bacon and eggs.
I believe this recipe came out of the Fyffe family cookbook
