Homemade Biscuits

A wonderful lazy Sunday afternoon ... lovely weather... bored out of my wits ... hmmmm what can I do?  I was reading a book and suddenly I was inspired!  The woman baked breakfast biscuits and served it with gravy and sausages.

I googled for a simple recipe recipe and found one.  I went to the kitchen and checked if I have the ingredients to bake a batch of biscuits.  Oh, yes!


2 C. flour
2 t. baking powder
1/2 t. salt
4 T. butter, cut into small cubes
3/4 C. fresh milk

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt.  Add butter and cut in using 2 knives or pastry cutter.  When it resembles like corn meal, add the milk and stir with a fork until well blended.

Scoop the dough using a small scooper into the small ungreased muffin pan.  In the recipe, it says I have to flatten the dough into a disc and use a small dough cutter, too much hassle so I just opted to use the scooper.

Bake at 400F for 8-10 minutes.

Serve with butter, jam, honey or gravy.

I still have the left over gravy from yesterday

and 3 pieces of the sausage links I bought from S and R.

My merienda was sausage, biscuits and gravy with a cup of coffee.

Tita Portia and Wriggly liked my experiment.  Tita Portia said it reminded her of the biscuits she used to eat at the Officer's Club in Taiwan together with fried chicken, gravy, sweet potato pie and banana/apple fritters.

I love baking when the weather is perfectly cool.  A productive lazy afternoon indeed.  Hahaha ... what a contradiction.
