I wanted to make some real bread, and then realized that I would either have to deal with the hassle of yeast, and kneading, or buy some buttermilk, which is entirely useless for purposes other than baking bread-y type stuff (in my opinion).
The winner - biscuits (the american kind). such comfort food. and it uses so few ingredients (although I did end up having to go out and buy some baking powder).
1 cup white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
3 tablespoons butter, softened
1/4 cup milk (or more if needed)
Preheat oven to 450°F. Measure flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add butter to bowl and rub butter into flour with your fingers or a fork. Add milk to make a thick batter, stirring only until dough sticks together. Drop by teaspoonfuls on an ungreased baking sheet. Bake 7-8 minutes.
I ended up making two batches - 9 weeny little biscuits just aren't enough.
And this is all that's left. Yes, that's right. Of the biscuits consumed today I must have been responsible for at seven or eight of them. Well - they're best hot out of the oven, anyway!
I think I'll make more biscuits next weekend. Or something else. Maybe I'll have enough time to make more than one thing :)
