Once the heater did come back on...baking ensued! I made it a new year's resolution to bake more healthily due to health reasons...so you will see more sugar-free recipes, or reduced sugar recipes, I will be using more whole-wheat flour, fruits and even vegetables YUM! So keep checking back or subscribe so you won't miss a post!
I am a member of The Daring Kitchen and this month Audax Artifex was our January 2012 Daring Bakers’ host.. Aud worked tirelessly to master light and fluffy scones (a/k/a biscuits) to help us create delicious and perfect batches in our own kitchens!
I added a tablespoon of sugar to the recipe because I wanted them to have both a sweet and salty taste.
Whole Wheat Biscuits
- 1 cup whole wheat flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 3 tablespoons frozen butter
- 1/2 cup cold milk
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon milk (optional, for glazing the tops of the biscuits)
|I've seen so many of my fellow baker's baking with this flour that I had to too!|
Preheat oven to 475F. In a mixing bowl mix flour, baking powder, salt, sugar. Add in the frozen butter and use your fingers to mix it with the flour and other ingredients. Once your fixture resembles coarse bread crumbs pour in the milk and using your hands fold all of the ingredients. The dough should be sticky and very moist.
|Sticky and moist dough|
So continue to fold in the flour at least 6-8 times. Get some flour and rub it on your hands so the dough is easier to manage. Separate dough into round balls. I poured a little bit of milk onto each biscuit This recipe will make 6 biscuits, but you can double this recipe to make 12 biscuits, okay! They bake for 8-10 minutes. At 8 minutes be watching them, they should be rising and the tops should have a light brown color.
|Six perfect biscuits!!|
|Make sure to add a little bit of flour to your baking sheet|
If you're not sure whether you would like baking with whole-wheat flour I recommend baking these biscuits. I wasn't sure either and whoa, mind was blown they're very, very good!
