This is a light, delicious biscuit using white whole wheat flour which you can usually find at a health food store or co-op. It mixes up quickly and is best eaten right out of the oven.
- 2 cups soft white whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1 large egg, plus enough yogurt to make 2/3 cup
- 1⁄3 cup melted butter or 1⁄3 cup oil
- Sift the dry ingredients into a bowl.
- Make a well in the center.
- Pour the combined beaten egg and yogurt into the well, along with the melted butter or oil.
- Stir until minimally combined.
- Turn out the dough on a floured surface, and knead briefly until it is uniform and smooth.
- The dough should be soft and moist.
- Roll or pat the dough until it is about 1/3" thick.
- Cut into your favorite shapes.
- Place on a lightly greased cookie sheet and bake in a preheated 450 degree F oven for about 10 minutes.
- For variation, you can add herbs, cheese, spices or sugar to the dough to create your own special biscuits.
I made this following directions exactly. On the variation, I did add some garlic and sharp cheddar cheese. They weren't exactly light and fluffy like bisquits made with white flour, but they were good. I used my whole wheat flour I ground myself with my new Whisper Mill. I am trying to convert my whole family to eating healthier whole grains and even my 12 year old son said they were different than my usual bisquits, but they were good. I will make them again to accompany breakfast sometime and ommit the garlic and cheese. Thanks for a great recipe!
I made this, using oil. However, since I am lazy I didn't roll it out or knead it much. I just squished it around and then pressed it somewhat flat, and cut into squares. They still turned out good.
i made these for breakfast this morning. they were plenty fluffy and rose just fine. i might have used a little more yogurt, but they turned out great. thanks*m
