I just noticed all the comments and questions about SALT. As the recipe calls for self-raising flour, no more salt is needed as self-raising flour already contains salt as well as baking powder.
Good texture, I didn't have self-rising strong flour but added a tablespoon of baking powder, this creates the rising reaction from the buttermilk. Also, there is NO mention of salt, they should be salted or use salted butter. They end up being with s great consistency but lack of flavor (well, other than the buttermilk). Since my toaster over goes until 450 I baked them for 17 minutes, I do think there's a typo there but the consistency was great.
Pro tip: make an indentation with your thumb so they will raise even
I am pretty sure that the 475° oven temperature is a typo. It should probably be 375°. If salt isn't called for in a recipe and/or unless it's specified, use salted butter. If using unsalted add a 1/2 tsp of salt or to taste.
THIS is the perfect biscuit recipe. Beyond easy, and simply the best biscuit you can make
Fantastic... and super fast and easy. This is my goto biscuit recipe. Pro tip: leave a stick of butter in your freezer all the time so you can make a batch in minutes when the urge hits.
475 degrees?!? Everytime I've made these, the baking temperature is so high, it overbakes them, even at 425f. I live in FL and I'm wondering if that has anything to do with it? I follow the recipe precisely and yet still they get too cooked on the outside. What other troubleshooting tips should I try? What is a good temp to bake at that won't overdo it?
I have been making these for years. I always end up add more buttermilk. I think it’s because my measuring cup measure more; being professional grade. They come out perfect every time and are constantly requested by family and friends. For those who say it doesn’t have enough salt, it’s not the recipe. It’s you taste buds. Many recipes are too salty for me and it think the salt receptors if my taste bud are more sensitive that the others. Try using salted butter.
These biscuits were easy to make and turned out light and pretty. However, they did not have any flavor. I used unsalted butter (the recipe does not specify). Perhaps adding salt would have helped.
I never could consistently make really good biscuits until I tried this recipe. It’s TERRIFIC! Can’t miss with this recipe. It is my go-to for the best biscuits, everyone loves them!
Perfect! My whole family raved about these. This will be my “go to” biscuit recipe from now on!
Salted or un-salted Butter??
Excellent and easy recipe. Melt in your mouth. Will definitely make them again.
Turned out perfect! I followed the video and they were so good.
