Basic Ingredients

  • 2 cups All-purpose flour, (can be substituted with Gluten free flour)
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 5 tablespoon Cold unsalted butter
  • ¾ cup Whole Milk

Biscuit Trivia

Did you know?

Dipping your biscuit into milk will give it up to 10 times more flavor release than by eating it alone or dry and survey showed that 29% of adults say they have been scalded or splashed by hot milk while dipping biscuits. Source: daddypapersurfer


6 Easy Steps

  1. Prepare baking sheet with a liner (parchment paper) or grease oven tray. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl. Mix well.
  3. Cut butter into cubes and add them into the flour. Blend well and then add milk. Continue stirring until well blended and dry mixture is completely moistened.
  4. Knead the dough into a slightly floured surface.
  5. Scoop a spoonful and place each on the baking sheet. Keep enough space in between dough as it will expand (about 2-3 cm apart).
  6. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until biscuits are rustic brown.

Good to know~

Best served warm but can be cooled for few minutes and store in a jar or plastic bag for later munching.

For sweet and savory delight, spread a thin film of your favorite jam or jelly and indulge. :)

This biscuit also makes a great soup-dipper.

Quick Tips:

1. For the carb conscious and to increase fiber, replace half of the all-purpose flour with whole wheat flour.

2. Do not over-mix dough. It will become hard and elastic in texture.

3. Sprinkle some cinnamon powder on the mixture before baking. Your bread will taste and smell delicious.

      ChitrangadaSharan: Thank you. I'm glad you like it. I'm not that much a foodie myself and I personally prefer simple food that I could prepare and cook/bake in no time. I do experiment with some complicated cooking at times though. You know that kind of trial and error thing? More often an error for me. *smile*

      Hiya, being English this has always puzzled me, we don't call these biscuits, these are scones, we put jam and cream in them, to us biscuits are your cookies! lol! but saying that, whether biscuits or scones, they look scrumptious!
