Cheddar Biscuits

I have always loved biscuits. The crunchy outside with a tender center. I had two kinds of these in the US, cheddar biscuits from Kitchen Inspiration, and another one, with sausage and gravy from Little Goat. As soon as I got home, i wanted some. So I bought some necessary ingredients like cheddar cheese. Then off to bake. Random websites for the recipe, honestly, I don’t remember. I think I used this one though.

This biscuit turned out brilliantly. But honestly, it is still nothing compared to that of the one I had in the US. I am thinking it might be the weather, or maybe the way I crumbled it using my hands instead of a pastry cutter (I don’t have that!) This wasn’t as tender, but it was still really good!

Recipe as lifted from linked website:

  • 2 to 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for work surface
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees, with rack on lower shelf. In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and pepper. Cut in butter with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse crumbs, with some pea-size lumps. Mix in buttermilk and cheese until combined. With a floured hand, knead dough against side of bowl until it holds together. If it is sticky, knead in up to 1/4 cup more flour.

    2. After kneading biscuit dough, turn it out onto a lightly floured work surface. Pat the dough to 1 inch thick. With a floured 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut out rounds as close together as possible. Place on a baking sheet. Gather scraps; pat again, and cut out more rounds.

    3. Brush the tops with 1/2 tablespoon melted unsalted butter. Bake until biscuits are golden brown, rotating sheet halfway through, 18 to 20 minutes. Serve warm.

  • 1/4 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
