Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

When I went to make these biscuits, looked into the bag of self rising flour found only a cup. Actually this recipe requires only self rising flour, but substituted one cup with all purpose flour. The biscuits turned out good but not so flaky, the extreme hot weather in Mumbai made the butter just melt as I was incorporating it into the flour. Tried keeping the dough in refrigerator but that too did not help.

Sending these to 
Foodie Extravaganza Party - theme Buttermilk Biscuits our host of the month is Kathleen, thank you for hosting this event. 

1 Level Cup Self-rising flour
1 Level Cup All Purpose Flour
1/2 Teaspoon Baking Powder
1/4 Teaspoon Salt
2 Tablespoons Light Brown Sugar powdered
3/4 Cup Buttermilk - chilled
¼ Cup Heavy Cream - chilled
110 Grams Butter - chilled


Preheat oven to 180 degrees.
Line a tray sheet with butter paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl add flour, salt and brown sugar. Whisk until well combined.
Grate the cold butter into the flour mixture.
Use a fork,  to cut the butter  into the flour mixture until it resembles large crumbs.
Make a well in the center of the bowl. Add the heavy cream and lightly mix it with your finger tips. Then add the butter milk gently little at a time to make sticky dough ( do not knead the dough).
Sprinkle flour generously on the work surface. Place dough onto floured surface.
Sprinkle the top of dough with flour and flour your hands as well.
Very gently, knead the dough by folding it in layers a few times while just a little flour,  so that the dough is not sticking to your hands or your work surface. 

Gently pat the dough out into a small rectangle about 1 inch thick, flour your biscuit cutter and cut out circles.  Place biscuits on the baking tray.
Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. 

Brush with melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven. Serve warm and enjoy with a cup of tea.

  1. Well they certainly look lovely. NO one would know they caused you a problem had you not told us.

  2. These look like they baked up really nice, despite all your heat.

  3. Looks good despite your challenges!! Nothing wrong with a classic!! Yum!

  4. Your biscuits are beautiful. I'm sorry you had challenges making them. You did really wonderfully though.

  5. There's nothing worse than trying to bake in a hot kitchen, thankfully we don't get many hot days here in the UK. These do look very tender and light.
