This is the start of my homemade biscuits. I created this one because my usual go-to recipe didn't produce biscuits that rise high enough for me. I also don't need a ton of biscuits with there only being 3 of us that are eating them. I'm looking at 2 leftover biscuits in the pan and I'm sure Bob will scarf those down a little later with some butter and honey.
Anyhow, I sift the flour, baking powder, spices and sugar all together.
This is what the mixture looks like after the butter is cut in.
Baked Lava Baking Powder-Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 cup cold butter, cut in cubes
1 tablespoon sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar and spices including salt together into a medium sized bowl. Cut in the cold butter until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
Blend egg with buttermilk. Make a well in the middle of the flour mixture and pour in the milk mixture. Combine with a fork until mixture just comes together. You may need to just use your hands. I did...it was a lot easier.
Turn dough out onto a floured board and knead a couple of times.
Pat dough out until it is about 3/4-inch thick. Cut out biscuits and put onto a parchment lined baking sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15-20 minutes or until biscuits are lightly golden on the bottom.
