How to make it

  • Go to the gym and burn some calories in preparation and to work up an appetite.
  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees
  • If you haven't already, cut the butter into small cubes and stick it in the freezer
  • Mix the flour with salt, baking powder and baking soda
  • When the oven is preheated, cut the butter into the flour mixture with a pastry blender or food processor until it resembles a coarse meal. Work fast.
  • Make a well in this mixture and pour in the buttermilk and mix gently. You want to add just enough buttermilk so that all the flour/butter grains hold together. Don't add too much buttermilk and try not to handle it too much.
  • Turn out onto a floured surface. Use all-purpose flour.
  • You don't want to knead, but roll the dough out gently with a floured rolling pin and fold over 3-4 times.
  • Roll out the dough until it's 1/2 inch thick (or thicker) and cut with a biscuit cutter.
  • Place onto a greased cooking sheet. You can use more butter, or cooking spray.
  • If you want crusty sides, separate them biscuits, otherwise place them together. They will rise in the oven.
  • Bake for 10-12 minutes or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Let cool and eat.
  • Wait at least an hour.
  • Go to the gym and burn off those calories
