Baking Powder Biscuits or Boredom on a Friday

So after the whining in my previous post I decided I needed some serotonin. Or cheese, either would do. I baked some baking powder biscuits (American-style biscuits, not British) last night.

Mmm... bread


I think this was the first recipe given to us during our cooking class in high school. Imagine a bunch of 11 and 12-year-olds trying to sift flour and not get any on our uniforms.

Basic recipe:

2 cups sifted flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 cup butter

2/3 cup milk

1 cup grated cheese (optional)

Combine all dry ingredients, rub butter into the flour, add the cheese, then add the milk. Mix to make the dough. Shape the biscuits – you can use a cookie cutter if you want – or do what I did and just use a muffin pan.

Bake for 10-12 minutes at 450 degree F or 230 degrees Centigrade.

I also added:


Curry powder

Chili flakes

You can add bacon bits too if wanted.

I’ve eaten them with split pea soup. Perfect for today’s weather.
