Angel Biscuits

14 Jan 2011

This recipe was so interesting that I made it the next day when I saw it at Happy Flour. Thanks Happy Flour for sharing such a great recipe. The biscuit looks like a scone but was so much softer and fluffier than a scone. It's in between a bread & scone, tasted very flavourful too! Yummy!

Recipe from Fresh with Anna Olson- Retro 50's Meal (season 2) adapted from Happy Flour

Ingredients:(make 8 biscuits)
2g instant dry yeast
30g sugar
1tbsp warm water (body temperature)
190g plain flour
1/4tsp baking soda
1/4tsp baking powder
1/4tsp salt
60g cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
120g buttermilk

Methods:1. Stir yeast, a pinch of the sugar and water together and set aside while preparing other ingredients.
2. Sift flour, remaining sugar, baking soda, baking powder and salt into a large bowl.
3. Cut the butter into the flour until it’s a rough crumbly texture.
4. Stir the yeast mixture into the buttermilk and add it all to the flour.
5. Mix until a sticky dough comes together, wrap and chill overnight.
6. The next day, preheat oven to 220C.
7. On a generously floured surface (dough will be sticky), roll out dough to 1cm thick and fold dough over in half, pressing down gently.
8. Using a 5 cm round cutter, cut out biscuits and place on a lined tray.
9. Bake 10-12mins, until just lightly browned.
10.Remove from tray and cool it on a wire rack.
11.Serve biscuits warm or freeze and re-warm to serve later.

A must try & keeper recipe!!!

I want to try this too, by the way, just serve this plain or with jam?

Wen said...

Hi all, thanks for all the lovely comments. Do give this recipe a try!

Hi Sonia, you can serve it with jam or cream cheese spread but it's already very nice on it's own.
