1/2 cup or 1 stick of butter
2 cups self-rising flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1.25 cups buttermilk
- Preheat the oven to 450° F.
- Put the stick of butter into an 8′ square baking pan, and place it in the oven.
- Place flour into a large bowl while the butter melts in the oven.
- Add baking powder to flour and stir together with a whisk.
- Measure out the buttermilk into a 2 cup measuring cup.
- Remove the pan with melted butter from the oven, measure out 1/3 cup of the butter into a measuring cup, then place the pan back into the oven to keep it hot.
- Add melted butter into the buttermilk and stir.
- Pour the buttermilk mixture into the bowl of flour and stir until the ingredients are thoroughly mixed; the dough will be thick and sticky.
- Take the pan out of the oven and pour the biscuit dough into the hot buttered baking pan, spread the dough out evenly; it doesn’t have to be perfect because the dough will spread and fill in any cracks as it bakes.
- Use a Bench Scraper, or dough scraper, to cut into the dough the size biscuits you desire, preferably 9 equal-sized square biscuits.
- Return the pan to the oven and bake for 15 minutes.
- Serve hot with butter and jelly, jam, syrup, or sausage gravy.
- Store after biscuits are cooled and place them into an airtight container; they can be frozen for up to a month.
- Spray the bench scraper with a spray oil before cutting the raw dough so the dough doesn’t stick to the scraper.
- Keep a sharp eye on the butter, don’t let it burn as it melts in the oven.
