    Question:Tall- and- Fluffy- Buttermilk- Biscuits

    Tall and Fluffy Buttermilk Biscuits Is it just me or is the batter thin when you measure it out and roll in the flour? I followed the directions step by step but I wasn't really able to "roll" the batter in the flour.

    The baked up nice but they don't look like the picture, they resemble dropped biscuits.

    Please let me know if the batter should be different.

    Thank you.

    Did you use self-rising flour? I haven't made this but there are several positive reviews, they did not report the same problem you had.

    Hi,
    Your use of the word "batter" confuses me a bit. You should not have ended up with a thin batter. You should have ended up with a very soft dough, which you scooped out of the bowl, and placed into a pan of flour. Using the flour in the pan to lightly cover the dough ball while you pat it into shape (a ball), then placed it into a greased baking pan).

    I'm not sure what happened....sorry if the questions I'm asking are very basic.....just trying to help figure it out icon_confused.gif

    Did you use self rising flour?
    Did you add the baking soda to the self rising flour?
    Did you cut the cold butter into the flour mixture (or pulse a few times in a food processor until the butter was cut into the flour)?
    Were all your ingredients (butter and butter milk) refrigerator cold, or did you use melted butter?
    Did you measure the flour correctly (by spooning it into a dry measure cup, then leveling it off with a straight edge/knife)?

    If your results were more of a thin batter than a soft dough, you either didn't use enough flour, or too much buttermilk. Its also possible that you may have over mixed the dough.
