Typically you simply want a small batch of biscuits! This small batch skillet buttermilk biscuit recipe makes 5 lil guys which are excellent for two folks for breakfast, or for five small biscuits for breakfast all through the week.
Mike and I have been on an extended stroll final weekend after we handed purchase a new-ish biscuit place that we’ve been that means to attempt. So though we have been full from snacks at one other cafe (OMG, which I’ve a narrative about) we hopped in for some biscuits. They have been good and sparked a dialog concerning the distinction between biscuits and scones. Mike thinks biscuits must be flaky. And I completely agree that good biscuits are flaky. However what about these biscuits which are extra on the crumb aspect of issues? Are these not biscuits?! (be aware from Mike: completely not biscuits)
Anyway, I used to be impressed and whipped up this small batch biscuit recipe. I used to be really actually fortunate as a result of I had precisely one cup of flour left! I used the meals processor to whip these up – it was my first time utilizing a meals processor to do biscuits and so they ended up mild and ethereal and biscuity, however not layered. When you’re on the lookout for a layered biscuit, this isn’t it. Layered biscuits want larger, flatter slabs of butter and utilizing a meals processor provides you extra smaller, extra evenly distributed pockets of butter.
I’m actually proud of how these got here out. I simply had one (I’m penning this two days later) and it was simply pretty much as good as when it got here out of the oven. I popped it within the oven to provide it a bit of heat and a fast toast and it was buttery and crispy and mushy and every kind of fine.
Completely satisfied biscuit making!
PS – The story concerning the cafe: Mike and I went to an excellent hipster, tremendous busy cafe that was a seat your self type of scenario. We wished to eat a bunch of issues however didn’t wish to stalk/stand subsequent to tables simply empty handed so we grabbed a espresso and beer and frolicked close to the tables casually ready for folks to go away. We have been standing there for a great twenty minutes, simply chatting, when a desk began gathering up their issues to go away. We hung again, considering that we’d seize their desk after they have been achieved, however abruptly, a girls checked out us and at them, then walked previous us in direction of them to ask in the event that they have been leaving. They mentioned sure, in fact, after which she simply sat down. I used to be so aggravated as a result of…I don’t know, it was fairly clear that we have been ready for a desk, however type of attempt to not be these annoying people who find themselves standing proper subsequent to your desk whilst you’re attempting to take pleasure in your self. Anyway, we acquired a desk 10 minutes later, however I used to be completely miffed as a result of, good day espresso store etiquette?!? Okay, finish rant.
