It snowed here on Thursday and some through the night. Friday, daycare was closed, icy roads. The lake in the back of our house froze. It was cold. Cold is actually an understatement!
The snow didn’t melt, roads were still icy through the weekend. As I peeped through my kitchen window, it was calm and there was an unruffled repose. It was beautiful. We did not want to go outside at all. The warmth inside was so comforting.
Come sunday morning, after the yoga session at home, we were HUNGRY. Some spicy chai and buttermilk biscuits just hit that spot. It was so cute – A, M and me were just standing by our toaster-oven sipping on tea and watching the biscuits fluff and bake. It was just like 3 little kids eagerly awaiting their hot breakfast. This was the first time I baked biscuits. They were so easy to make, I could not believe it. Friends are invited. Just come on over next time you feel like having some oven hot biscuits.
Here’s the Recipe – Enjoy !!
We are more of a small portion family – we baked only 3 biscuits, plus if you are making it the first time, I suggest make smaller portions. You don’t end up feeling too bad if it turns out bad.
1/2 cup All-purpose flour
1/2 tsp Baking powder
1/8 tsp Baking soda
1/8 tsp Salt
1.5 tbsp butter
Buttermilk – a little less than a 1/4 cup
Additionally more salted butter to brush on the biscuits later after they are done
Since we had such a small batch of biscuits, we used the toaster oven. I lined the oven tray with parchment paper, greased the parchment paper.
If you are using regular over, pre-heat oven to 450 degrees. I heated my toaster oven to 350 degrees.
In a big bowl, I combined all the ingredients using my finger tips. Don’t spend too much time mixing. Just mix enough such that the mixture comes together and forms a lump. It is a sticky mixture, so you might want to grease your hands before you start mixing.
Roughly divide the mixture into equal portions and pat them into somewhat roundballs. Place these on the parchment paper and then let the oven do it’s magic.
I baked the biscuits for about 10 to 12 minutes. While they were hot, I brushed some Amul butter on them. I loved them and so did hubby. Yes, I will make them again !!
