Fresh biscuits baked in a cast iron skillet

Homemade Biscuits


  • 2 cups of flour
  • 8 tablespoons of salted butter
  • 1 tablespoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3/4 cup of buttermilk

How to make:

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. Grease cookie sheet for baking.

In a large mixing bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda together. Cut 4 tablespoons of softened butter into the mixture and grate 4 tablespoons of frozen butter with a cheese grater into the mixture. Using a fork, make a well and pour in buttermilk. Knead the dough and add more buttermilk if necessary.

Turn out dough onto a well-floured surface. Continue kneading until the dough consistency is even and roll out to 3/4 inch thickness, or desired thickness. Cut with a 2.5-inch biscuit cutter.

Place cut biscuits onto the cookie sheet and bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.
