I've never been a homemade biscuit maker. I know my strengths and making fluffy, buttery, flakey buttermilk biscuits is NOT one of them. (Great start to a biscuit recipe.🤦🏻♀️😅) I am a master at making biscuits that come in a tube and then digging through the trash to find the package that I just threw away because I forget the directions 10 seconds after I read them. 🤣
Living in the South doesn't help my biscuit baking confidence either. Homemade biscuits are up against some pretty stiff competition. I mean, there are entire restaurant chains - devoted to biscuits!! 😅 There's no way that I can compete with that. Have you ever tasted a church's honey butter biscuit? Heavenly.
So it's with extreme humility that I share my recipe for a simple, humble biscuit. I know that they're not as light and fluffy as a Popeye's biscuit. They're not nearly as buttery as a Bogangle's biscuit and my petite sized, flat biscuits pale in comparison to a cat head biscuit. Heck, they're not even round. 😬😂
So be kind when you comment on my biscuit recipe. I already know that I have no business venturing into the biscuit world. But here I am - throwing my own little recipe out into world along with all the greats. I'm certainly not trying to recreate the original Chick-Fil-A biscuit or reproduce the refrigerated and frozen biscuits that you can buy at the grocery store. (Why reinvent the wheel? 🤷🏻♀️) I just want to share a simple recipe that you can use to make your own biscuits at home. Because you sometimes you just crave a biscuit and you don't want to leave the house. 😆
6 ounces lard
12 Tablespoons butter
4 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 Tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 Tablespoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 1/4 cups buttermilk
How do you eat your biscuits? I like a pat of butter or a smear of jam. (Never both on the same biscuit.) I'm also a fan of peanut butter on a biscuit but I want to know how you eat them. Send me your favorite toppings. Anyone enjoying biscuits with avocado or fresh tomato? This inquiring mind needs to know. 😂
