John needs bread like I need rice. 🙂 Understable, considering that he grew up eating such. My problem was that I had no idea what he was talking about when he mentioned biscuits. As far as I’m concerned, it’s packed biscuits we buy from the store or the bakeshoppe. ha ha..
Until he showed me a box of Bisquick which he found at Gaisano Mall. Baking it was so easy since there’s a direction at the back of the box. But you see, Bisquick is imported. And once it reaches Davao, it does not stay long at the store. There’s a lot of foreigners in Davao and that brand is a “seller”, so to speak.
It’s a good thing that Food Network’s website exist. 🙂 So I printed their biscuit recipe and practiced on it.
So let me share with you the recipe:
2 cups All Purpose Flour (Pillsbury or the local brand is ok)
1 tsp sugar / 1 tsp salt
1 tablespoon baking powder
3/4 cup milk (fresh or pure low fat milk)
8 tablespoons butter, cubed (I use Blue Bonnet)
In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar , baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into mixture until it begins to look like a cornmeal.
Make a well with flour mixture and slowly add milk into the middle. Knead dough with your fingers and add milk when necessary. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll out to desired thickness. Cut with small biscuit cutter.
Butter the bottom of your tray and bake for 12 mins or until golden brown.
Like I said, it’s so easy. 🙂
Biscuits are best served during breakfast with bacon and/or sausage.
Speaking of bacon or sausages, we buy our stock from Swiss Deli. You will find them in the cold section of the grocery stores like SM, Gaisano Mall, NCCC Mall and Robinsons. Swiss Deli also have their own restaurants located at Damosa Gateway in Lanang. And along Matina, near the water district office.
My nephews love this. So maybe, your children or nephews will too. 🙂 This is such a simple recipe so it’s easy to serve it during breakfast.
I usually serve it with a glass of fresh orange juice. And problem solved! 🙂
