Fluffy Biscuit Recipe
by Beth Scott
Do you think a great fluffy
biscuit recipe is merely a dream? Do you think it's impossible for you
to bake your own fluffy homemade biscuits?
Well, you'll be amazed to know
that a fluffy biscuit recipe is right on this page along with
proven tips for turning a dry biscuit recipe into a fluffy biscuit
First off, if you’re using the basic homemade
biscuit recipe; flour, baking powder, oil, and milk. Then you
should start by putting in 3/4 more milk than oil. The oil tends
to make the biscuits drier, but the milk will make your homemade
biscuit recipe, lighter.
For instance if your homemade biscuit recipe was 1/3
cup oil, and 2/3 cup milk, then you should change your biscuit recipe
to 1/4 cup oil and 3/4 cup milk.
Also if you want a real light and fluffy biscuit
recipe be sure you aren’t using a heavy coarse flour like rye, or whole wheat flour.
These tend to “drag” the biscuits down and make them heavier.
Another good tip for a good fluffy biscuit recipe,
is to add herbs to the biscuit dough before you bake them. Basil
is an excellent herb to add, especially when you also add a few
teaspoons of Parmesan cheese too.
Other herbs that make for good biscuit add-ins are
fresh chives or green onions.
Here is a
delicious fluffy biscuit recipe along these lines:
- 2 cups pastry flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 3/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup olive oil
1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Mix the
pastry flour and baking powder together in a small bowl. Then
pour in the milk and oil. Stir until the flour mixes completely
with the liquids.
If your mix is still a bit doughy, sprinkle in a little bit more flour,
and mix with a fork until you can handle the dough with your hands.
3. Oil a
pizza pan or a plain cookie sheet, then roll your dough out onto the
oiled pan. Use a biscuit cutter (or just a household cup) to cut
your dough out into as many biscuits as you need.
Hint: The biscuits will be much fluffier
if the dough isn’t rolled down really flat. Roll the dough out so
that the top of the dough is a half an inch to an inch above the pan,
before you cut the dough into biscuits.
Slip the biscuits into the oven, and bake on 350 degrees Fahrenheit for
18 to 20 minutes, or until golden.
Butter and jam go well with this fluffy biscuit
recipe, especially if you’re using the biscuits for breakfast.
