Total Time 33 minutes
Servings 10 -12 Biscuits
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 6 tablespoons unsalted butter cold
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk cold
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 tablespoons unsalted butter melted
Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Grease a 9 inch round cake or springform pan and a 1/4 measuring cup. On a baking sheet, evenly spread out the 1 cup flour.
In a medium bowl, combine 2 cups flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and baking soda. Cut the butter into pieces and blend into the flour mixture using a dough blender, two forks, or your fingers until coarse and no pieces are larger than a pea. Stir in the buttermilk just until combined. It will be a wet dough.
Use the greased measuring cup to drop 1/4 cup mounds of dough onto a floured baking sheet. Gently cover each piece of dough with flour, lightly shape into a ball, and shake off excess flour. Place each ball of dough in the prepared pan.
Brush each biscuit with melted butter and bake in preheated oven for 5 minutes, then reduce temperature to 450˚F. Bake until the tops are golden in color, 13 to 15 minutes.
Let the biscuits cool in the pan for about 2 minutes before removing. Serve warm with jam, butter, or honey.
