Okay so I love Agege bread(locally freshly baked Nigerian bread)- who doesn’t?
I’m sure you’re wondering what that has to do with my recipe today and I’m about to tell you!
So I didn’t have bread today. I was hungry and there was nothing I could find appealing in the house to eat. Plus I was also in the baking mood and some of the ingredients were not available for what I wanted to make which was also in the bread line so to speak so I decided to make my favorite and most often cooked meal – American biscuits!!!
My cravings for American biscuits started for the first time when a dear family friend of mind made them for me from her microwave!! And when I saw how easy it was I started to make it often as a household snack!
It’s way easier than having to wait for one hour for yeast to rise and all . And you can eat it with whatever you want- butter, jam, peanut butter, tea. But I love it with butter cause just watching the butter melt on that hot biscuit is awesome
So here’s the famous American Biscuits Recipe
2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons butter, cubed
3/4 cup milk
In a large bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into mixture and mash it all up.
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 bottom of skillet and place biscuits in pan. I used baking paper however to line my pan. You can brush on some egg to make it golden brown on the top. Put in the oven for about 20 minutes- well until slightly brown.
