NINEv2: amyldoanitrite: I've been making some damn good homemade biscuits of late, using grated frozen butter. May have to try this.

But I will NOT be using buttermilk. Making biscuits with regular 2% was such a revelation. I never really liked biscuits most of my life, and it turned out what I didn't like about them was the flavor from the buttermilk. If you like it, more power to you, but I bet there are quite a few folks who'd find they preferred biscuits made with regular milk.

Isn't that bland af? And do they get as fluffy without the acidic buttermilk reacting with the baking powder/SR flour?


Baking powder shouldn't need any additional acid; it brings its own.  Baking soda needs a separate acid.

One problem with that 3 ingredient bit there subby...

Bacon is fat, salt, smoke and pig. Self rising flour is another 3 ingredients and buttermilk is two (butter and milk, it's right in the name ;) )

That's a 9 ingredient biscuit right there folks...

My trick is cubes of frozen butter and pulsing in a food processor. Less time for biscuits, more time for pie crust.

We can agree to disagree on the buttermilk, but I'll eat it either way. Yes I sound fat.

/spoiler: I am fat

And if you don't want to mess* with the broiler, finish them in your toaster oven.

*$3000 built-in electric oven with a major suckage broiler.
/no, I do not want to replace it just for a better broiler.
