A quick and easy homemade biscuit that is sure to please.
Recipe type: Bread
Cuisine: Quick Breads
Serves: 8 Biscuits
  • 2½ cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1¼ cups buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients together. Add oil, then mix. Add the butter, and then rub it into the flour with your fingers until the mixture is crumbly.
  3. Add buttermilk all at once, then mix enough to combine, but not any more. The goal is to have a fairly moist dough. Adjust buttermilk if necessary and then use floured hands and dough board to keep it from sticking to your fingers.
  4. Gently pat the dough down with your fingers to a thickness of about 1". Add any additional flour as necessary if the dough is too sticky.
  5. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out biscuits by pressing straight down, and then place on a greased baking sheet.
  6. Bake for 14 minutes or until golden brown.
