Bread, Main Courses, Recipes

Biscuits are a versatile bread that can go very well with savory or sweet options. This recipe is a pretty basic version that can be changed up by adding ingredients to it such as fruit to the dough for a sweeter version or cheese and chives to make a savory one!

Serves 6
Time required 25 minutes
Difficulty level 3
Cost of ingredients 4 USD

  • 2 cups (500ml) flour
  • 1 tablespoon (15ml) baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon (2ml) salt
  • 1 teaspoon (5ml) sugar
  • ¼ cup (60ml) cold butter
  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 2/3 cup (150ml) milk

Whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar. Using a fork, break the cold butter into many tiny pieces in the flour. Mix in the egg and just enough milk to make a light and soft dough, yet just stiff enough to handle fairly easy.

Place dough on a floured surface and form it into a ball, gently. Don’t over handle the dough. Roll out the dough to about ½ in thickness (about half the length from the tip to the first crease of your finger). Make sure to be gentle while doing this.

If you have a round cutter, use that to cut out round biscuits, if not just use a knife to cut the biscuits in 2 x 2 inch squares. Place on a well greased and floured baking pan.

Place in the refrigerator for about 10 minutes to chill before baking.

Pre-heat oven to 450F (230C). Place in oven and allow to bake 12-15 minutes.

Serve for breakfast with butter and jam, or sausage gravy or even with dinner!

    If you do not have a round cutter you can also use a glass that you have floured or a can. It works well and you do not need to buy the cutter.
