Homemade Biscuits Recipe

November 19th, 2007 at 04:57 am

Someone responded to one of my entries asking how I make homemade biscuits. I use a simple and straightforward recipe.

She also asked what Sticky Chicken is. The Sticky Chicken recipe I use is here:


And here's the biscuit recipe I use:

Rod's Biscuits

2 to 2 1/2 c flour
3 heaping tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/3 to 1/2 c oil
1 1/2 c milk (powdered milk works)

Sift the flour, salt and the baking powder into a large bowl. If you don’t have a sifter, go buy one. They’re cheap and the biscuits will be much fluffier after sifting. Add the oil and milk until you have a fairly stiff mixture. If the mixture is too runny, you can add some more flour to thicken it.

In another bowl, pour some flour into the bottom (roughly 1/2 cup). With a large spoon, scoop out enough of the biscuit mix to make a 2" ball. Drop this into the small bowl and roll the ball of mix around, covering the outside with flour. Pat this into a 1/2 inch thick patty and place into a baking pan.

Repeat this until you have used up all the biscuit mix. Place this into a preheated oven at 325 to 350 and bake for 15-30 minutes or until biscuits begin to brown on top.

    What kind of oil are you using? Different oils begin to change at different hight temps, so I think what oil you use in baking makes a difference. But I've never seen a biscuit recipe that calls for such a low heat and long cook. 325F for 30 minutes. That is very unlike other recipes I've tried, including drop biscuits using liquid oils.

    I'm going to give this a try, though, 'cause I seem to be among the world's worst biscuit makers. The best biscuit bakers I know tell me that the brand of flour really does make a difference --but those folks also all use shortening or lard! *cough*cough*my Arkansas Gramma*caugh*cough*

    Some day before I pass on I hope to make a really good biscuit.

    I use canola or olive oil and have made this recipe with both oils.
    Canola is definitely better than olive oil for this. Ha ha on the lard thing!
    I know just what you mean!
