Wow, it’s been a while since I’ve posted anything. I’ve been swamped with homework for my online course, plus the humidity doesn’t make me feel like heating up the oven and standing in a hot kitchen. Compared to the rest of the country, Maine’s weather has been very nice this summer, so I really shouldn’t comment on the humidity. Truly, though, I could be a polar bear!!! If I didn’t have the cool waters of a pond or lake nearby, summer would be my least favorite season.
Yesterday was a fairly nice day, so I decided to use up some buttermilk I had in the refrigerator and make some biscuits. They came out very nice – light, fluffy, a little bit sweet and “oh so good” warm… They went great with a big salad and a fresh ear of corn for dinner. Today, I spread a little mango butter on one and had it with my eggs for breakfast.
They were very easy to make, too – which is always a good thing in my kitchen. If a recipe has too many ingredients or steps, I usually skip it. I open my regular cookbooks and see which recipe will convert to gluten-free the easiest. This one did just that!
P.S. Even though Pamela’s mix has baking powder in it, I added extra to give the biscuits some lift – I do think it helped.
I hope you enjoy these biscuits as much as we did!
Gluten-free Buttermilk Biscuits
2 cups + 2 tablespoons Pamela’s Gluten-free Baking and Pancake Mix
3 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
5 tablespoons butter, room temperature
¾ cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease a large baking sheet with butter. In a large bowl, combine Pamela’s mix, sugar and baking powder. Cut in butter and blend until mixture is crumbly. Add buttermilk and stir. The dough will be sticky. Using an ice cream scoop, scoop the dough and drop onto the baking sheet. Bake for 15 to 17 minutes until golden brown. Makes about 9 biscuits.
