Biscuits are definitely my kind of breakfast! My Dad used to bring home some fried Chicken from ‘POPEYES’ and of course biscuits! I didn’t care too much for the chicken. I just wanted those BISCUITS!(I know, what a freak I am! Haha…)
When we moved to Germany, I was trying to find them here at KFC but the people here don’t even know what biscuits are.
They thought I was talking about some kind of cookie or something.
I gave up hope! All I could find was “Jiffy Biscuit Mix” in the box at some grocery stores. But they were way to expensive! A box costs like 6 € which is a bit over my budget.
Since everyone in my family already know how much I love baking and cooking, they “curiously” asked me if I could TRY and make some biscuits.
As if I hadn’t already “smelled” their plan of REQUESTING this from me.
Of course I couldn’t say no! I love challenges! And they have a point! You literally can whip up ANYTHING in your kitchen if you really want something so bad. There is nothing impossible in cooking and baking!
Even the worst cook can come up with an incredible dish.
This recipe is a keeper! They have that real buttery taste and fluffy texture. No need for searching any more. 🙂
Yield: 12 Pieces
280 g All-Purpose flour
2 tsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp Baking soda
115 g Butter
250 ml Buttermilk
Preheat oven to 230°C/450°F (top and bottom heat).
Sift flour, baking poweder and baking soda together in a large bowl.
Cut in the butter with a knife or pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the mixture and stir in buttermilk until a soft ball forms.
Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead for 2 to 3 minutes. Roll dough out to a 1/2-inch-thick rectangle.
Cut biscuits out with biscuit cutter and transfer to prepared baking sheet.
Bake in preheated oven until tops are golden brown, about 10 – 12 minutes.
Remove biscuits to cool completely on a wire rack.
Hint: I like to brush my biscuits with melted butter right after baking. It emphasizes the golden brown color and gives it an even more buttery taste.
