fluffiest ever baking powder biscuits

I don't know about you, but winter always calls for lots of soups in my family.  They're just so cozy, and perfect for those chilly, blustery days.  And of course, soup isn't quite complete without some sort of bread, am I right?

This recipe is for our favourite biscuits, and is from my grandma!  These biscuits are super fluffy, and basically foolproof.  We sometimes add in other spices (fresh rosemary is a favourite for sure), and often shredded cheese to mix things up a little.

And without further ado, here is the recipe!


yields: 10-12 biscuits (depending on size)


Combine flour, salt and baking powder into a large mixing bowl.

Cut in the butter using a pastry blender or a fork until it resembles coarse crumbs of consistent size.

Stir in milk until dough starts to form a ball.

Roll out the dough on a lightly floured surface to about 1/2 inch thickness.

You can use a circle cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits, or we usually use a knife to make squares roughly the same size.

Bake at 400 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

Serve warm (preferably) and enjoy!


2 cups flour
