My favorite biscuit

I finally found a biscuit recipe that I was looking for.     I leave here a very informative post, which is about ” Baking powder”  for reference.

From Debra Wink’s post ” Baking powder” ,   Argo or Bob’s Red Mill are good to go for the biscuits.  Rumford is her favorite for cakes.  I agree with her.  I made a good cake with Rumford.

I couldn’t find Argo and Bob’s Red Mill’s baking powder at the time. I simply bought  Rumford at the Walmart.

At the first try, I followed the recipe precisely. It came out great, and the biscuits were gone before I took a picture of  them. On the second time, which is today, I substituted the baking soda to baking powder because I don’t like baking soda in any baking.

Flaky buttermilk biscuit:   ( 12 small biscuits)

  • 1 1/4 King Arthur All purpose flour
  • 3/4 Tbsp baking powder ( I used Rumford )
  • 1/2 tsp  salt
  • 1 Tbsp shortening
  • 4 Tbsp Home made unsalted butter  ( diced )
  • 3/4 cup Home made butter milk
  • 1 Tbsp melted butter
  • Extra flour for working and shaping

How I made:

Preheat 450F

1. Put the diced unsalted butter in the freezer for 10 minutes.

2. Mix all the ingredients except the diced unsalted butter and combine well.

3. Lightly flour ( King Arthur All purpose flour )on the work surface.  Place the dough and press down to flatten. Put the diced unsalted butter on the dough.

4. Fold in a half using a rolling-pin.

5. Make a letter fold.

6. Repeat “5” x 3 times.  (  4 times in total )

7. Refrigerate the dough that is wrapped with plastic wrap for 10 minutes.

8. Shape:

9. Bake   Brush some milk on the surface. ( I used extra egg wash because I had some leftover after making croissants.)

450F for 10 -15minutes until golden brown.

When I buy Argo or Bob’s Red Mill’s baking powder, I will post  the result here.
