Basic Buttermilk Biscuits

These are simple, drop-style biscuits that bake up soft and delicate with an almost cake-like texture, but are not sweet. They are ideal to serve alongside a bowl of soup or chili or in place of a roll at dinner.

Directions for: Basic Buttermilk Biscuits

Ingredients

2 cup all-purpose flour

1 Tbsp sugar

1 Tbsp baking powder

½ tsp baking soda

¾ tsp salt

1 ¼ cup buttermilk

1 egg

¼ cup vegetable oil

Directions

1. Preheat the oven to 400 F and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.

2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.

3. In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk, egg and oil together. Add this to the flour mixture and stir just until blended.

4. Use an ice cream scoop or 2 tablespoons to drop batter (about ¼ cup each) onto the prepared baking trays, leaving 2-inches between them. Bake the biscuits for about 15 minutes until they are a light golden brown and lift away from the parchment easily.

5. Serve the biscuits warm from the oven, or re-heated at 300 for 10 minutes. The biscuits are best enjoyed the day they are baked.
