This is by far the easiest biscuit recipe you’ll ever need – so easy, that it will work from the first try – at least it did for me. I had to adapt the quantities from cups to grams or milliliters, and I converted Fahrenheit to Celsius. I still kept the original temperature for reference. 1 cup is about 200 grams or milliliters.
- 500 grams all purpose flour
- 4 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. sugar
- 1 tsp. sea salt
- 150 grams unsalted butter; cut into ¼-inch cubes
- 200 ml cold milk, or cream
- Preheat the oven at 220°C (or 450°F).
- In a large bowl, mix flour, baking powder, sugar and salt well.
- Add butter, and mix with the tips of your fingers until you have clumps of dough the size of baby peas.
- Add milk, and mix gently until the dough comes together.
- Flour a working surface, then knead the dough lightly, pressing and folding it about 10 times.
- Roll out into a 5 cm (2 inch) layer.
- Use a floured doughnut cutter to cut out 8-9 biscuits.
- Bake for 10 - 12 minutes, until the biscuits are golden-brown.
