Easy Homemade Biscuits


Easy Homemade Biscuits


Some people grow up on corn. Some people grow up on rice. 

I grew up on biscuits. My grandma's biscuits.

Until recently, I lamented the fact that I never asked my grandma how to make them, but over Christmas, my Aunt Faye gave me a quick tutorial. (She's like a Queen of Southern Cooking, a Fairy Godmother of Grits, if you will.)

In the meantime, this little bread recipe started a love affair with social media, and someone asked in the comments if it could be modified for biscuits. I casually responded with my normal noncommittal I-have-no-idea-I-just-make-this-one-simple-but-amazingly-delicious-bread answer, but added that I used my grandma's recipe for biscuits.

Well. 

They wanted it, these bread lovers. I have the emails to prove it.

So here it is. 

My Aunt Faye's biscuit lesson came with bacon, sausage, grits, and eggs from her backyard, but I hope that you'll be happy with the recipe, as I remember it, and a handful of hastily carefully curated images from my iPhone.

Stairway To Biscuit Heaven:

1. Mix the flour, baking powder, and vegetable oil in a medium-to-large bowl.

2. Add enough buttermilk to develop a good doughy consistency. (It takes me about a cup.)

3. Roll the dough out on a floured surface and form into biscuits. (Grease the tops if you like.)

4. Bake at 450 until golden brown.

I personally like to use a Non Stick Silicone Baking Mat on a cookie sheet. I also personally like to drench the biscuits in honey. Just my two cents, though.


Hope you enjoy these as much as we do!

    1. I kind of got lost in the comments over there, but I learned a lot! Some serious bread makers shared tips that work for them...all very cool. (And sort of intimidating if you are me.)
