Angel Biscuits Recipe

Angel Biscuits Recipe


• 2 Packets dry yeast

• 1/4 Cup warm water (100 degrees)

• 5 Cups all-purpose flour + extra for dusting

• 1 Tablespoon baking powder

• 1 Teaspoon baking soda

• 1 Tablespoon sugar

• 1 Cup cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces, + ½ cup melted and cooled for brushing

• 1 Teaspoon salt

• 2 Cups buttermilk


• Preheat the oven to 230 degrees celsius.

• Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and let it stand until foaming, about 5 to 10 minutes

• Sift the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar and salt together into a large bowl.

• Transfer half the dry ingredients to the bowl of a food processor and cut in the cold butter, pulsing, until the mixture resembles coarse meal, with some larger pieces of butter remaining in the mix.

• Transfer the mixture back to the bowl holding the dry ingredients and mix to combine.

• Make a well in the centre of the bowl and add the yeast and buttermilk. Stir until a dough forms and turn out onto a floured surface.

• Kneed until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky – around 5 minutes

• Roll out the dough to the desired thickness and cut with your cookie cutters.

• Place onto baking paper and brush the tops with the melted butter and bake until lightly golden brown. (approx. 10 minutes)


Serve using 2 biscuits by adding ham and mustard as your filler.
