Ingredients of Baking Powder Biscuits

  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup vegetable shortening
  • 2/3 cup milk

How to Make Baking Powder Biscuits

  • 1.Preheat your over to 180 degrees Celsius. Grease two 8" cake tins/ or a rectangular cake tin will suffice.
  • 2.Put the flour, salt, baking powder and sugar in a bowl.
  • 3.Cut the shortening into the flour with two knives or use your hands to rub the mix to resemble bread crumbs.
  • 4.Make a well in the center and all the milk at once stir with a fork till a soft dough forms. Don't worry at this point we are not looking for a perfectly smooth texture.
  • 5.Turn your dough out of the bowl onto your kitchen slab slightly dusted with flour and knead till a count of 14. Over kneading can make your biscuits hard.
  • 6.Pat the dough till about 1/2 inch thick you don't need to use a rolling pin hand patting is perfect!
  • 7.Cut 2 inch rounds with either a cookie cutter or even the open end of your glass.
  • 8.Place these biscuits in your tins touching each other and bake for about 15-20 minutes till golden.
  • 9.Notes: Sprinkle cumin for an Indian twist and spread butter straight hot out of the oven, absolutely sinful.
  • 10.Add 1/2 cup of sharp grated cheddar cheese in the dry ingredients for a slightly more sharper taste enjoy this with some freshly roasted cherry tomatoes and fresh basil.
