Buttermilk Biscuits are on the menu for this week! They’re flaky and are so easy and quick to prep. Prep takes only about ten minutes. Cooking takes about twelve minutes. From start to finish, you’ll be eating these flaky biscuits in just under half an hour.
The great thing about making this recipe is that it doesn’t require any yeast. So, there is no need to wait for them to rise. Simply mix all of the ingredients. Then, roll out the dough, layer and shape it into biscuits. Then, bake them in the oven for about 10 to 12 minutes. This recipe requires seven ingredients. They are all-purpose flour, baking soda, baking powder, buttermilk, unsalted butter, salt, and granulated sugar. That’s it! These are the ingredients that make the perfect biscuit.
The perfect biscuit has layers. To get layers, you’ll need to roll and fold the dough. These biscuits have 3 layers. So, they’ll need to be folded over twice. You might wonder why you should use buttermilk for biscuits. Well, you use buttermilk for a very specific reason. Buttermilk paired with baking powder helps the biscuits to rise. And, in turn, yields a fluffy biscuit. If you didn’t use these two ingredients you would almost have a tough and flat disc shape.
If you don’t have buttermilk on hand, you can simply whip some up by combining milk with a bit of vinegar or lemon juice. Combine 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice with 1 cup of milk. It’s that easy!
Pair these fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits with a spread of your choice. I tend to serve these for breakfast along with apple butter, bacon, and eggs. Hopefully, you enjoy making and eating these quick and easy Buttermilk Biscuits. Happy Rolling, Layering, and Baking! Until next time. Enjoy them to the Fullest!
