The photo is my own, and so is this humble recipe.
- please follow recipe exactly as written to obtain excellent results!
- cups of bread flour
- 2 1/4
- teaspoons active dry yeast
- tablespoons very warm water
- tablespoons dried buttermilk powder
- cups water
- tablespoons baking powder
- tablespoon soda
- tablespoons sugar
- 1 1/2
- teaspoon salt
- cup coconut oil shortening (solid kind)
- 2 tablespoons melted butter
Mix the yeast and 2 tablespoons of very warm water, stir. Set aside.
Mix the buttermilk powder and 2 cups of water, whisk, Set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients and cut in the coconut oil. Good luck with that. Never could do it! I always do mine with my fingers!
Add the buttermilk and yeast and just stir until moistened. Overmixing makes tough biscuits. So just stir until dough is intact, then dump out onto the bread board. Dust with a little flour and knead for a couple of minutes only. Roll out 1/2 inch thick and cut with a 1/2 inch cookie cutter. Place on parchment paper on cookie sheet. Brush melted butter on the tops prior to baking. This recipe makes 16 large biscuits.
Bake in preheated oven at 400 degrees for 15 to 17 minutes until lightly browned, depending on your oven and altitude.
You may store the dough in the refrigerator for several days if it is covered. Be sure to let the dough sit at least one hour and come to room temperature before baking. Enjoy!
