Here we have a recipe for a biscuit that anyone should be able to make. The recipe for these southern biscuits is quick and easy and if you'll follow the recipe carefully you'll be able to make delicious southern biscuits.
Ingredients Needed For Your Biscuits
1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
2. 1 teaspoons sugar
3. 1 tablespoon baking powder
4. 1 teaspoon ground sea salt
5. 8 tablespoons butter, cubed in very small cubes
6. 3/4 cup butter milk
Directions For Making Your Biscuits
1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
2. In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into mixture until it begins to look like cornmeal.
3. Make a well with flour mixture and slowly add milk into the middle. Knead dough with your fingers and add milk when necessary. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter.
4. Butter bottom of skillet and place biscuits in pan. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Try making biscuit dough in your food processor. Combine dry ingredients in the processor bowl. Add the butter and pulse 6 - 7 times, until the mixture resembles course meal. Slowly add the liquid through the food chute, with the processor running, just until the dough forms a ball and leaves the sides of the bowl. The processor can easily overwork the dough, so watch it closely. Then shape your biscuits with floured hands and bake.
If you like biscuits with crusty sides, place them 1 inch apart on a shiny baking sheet. For soft sides, arrange them in a shallow baking dish or pan.
I've found that sticky, slightly wet dough makes the best biscuits. Try it this way and you will be rewarded with delicious flaky biscuits.
You should now be able to make delicious homemade southern biscuits.
Have You Ever Heard Of Chocolate Gravy?
My Grandma Hattie and my Mom Virginia Walker both made delicious Chocolate Gravy and we had that chocolate gravy over homemade hot from the oven biscuits.
Makes about 2 cups
1. 1/4 cup cocoa powder
2. 1 cup granulated sugar
3. 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
4. Pinch of ground sea salt
5. 2 cups whole milk
6. 4 tablespoons butter, cubed
Good biscuits, for serving your chocolate gravy over. See biscuit recipe above.
Sift the cocoa, sugar, flour, and salt into a large skillet, preferably cast-iron. Add the milk in a slow, steady stream, whisking until smooth.
Cook over medium heat, stirring continuously with a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon, until the gravy thickens to the consistency of thin pudding, about 8 minutes. The gravy will thicken around the edge first, so keep it stirred up from the bottom and sides.
Remove the skillet from the heat and drop in the butter. Stir until melted and smooth.
Serve the warm gravy with the biscuits.
Note: The gravy thickens as it sits and cools. Thin it with a little more milk if needed when rewarmed.
