KFC Flaky Biscuits

Copycat KFC Flaky Biscuits recipe.   These buttery rolls are so easy to make! 
 

What is the best thing to serve with soup? Oh, you got it right Sista.  It’s biscuits.  I like my biscuits flaky.  I like them warm. I like a little butter on top.  I love when they crumble apart.  I also love to give them a little dive into the soup bowl. When I was little my mom worked at KFC (that’s Kentucky Fried Chicken if you didn’t know).  I’m not going to lie, I love that place.  Their biscuits, their mashed potatoes – hello big bucket of goodness.

I’m pretty sure this is illegal to the KFC conduct codebook but my mom would sometimes sneak me a extra biscuit.  That’s when I knew I was a good girl that day.  Off I went with a smile and my 2 warm biscuits.  What I loved about theirs was how flaky yet soft their biscuits were. They didn’t taste “bready” or heavy. They were light but delicious.

Whenever someone tries one of these biscuits, they’re like “This tastes like…” and I’m like, *hold a hand up*, “I know, enjoy”.   I love making these biscuits for soup or Sunday dinner (amazing with mashed potatoes and gravy).  There’s never a biscuit left on the dinner table.

Course Side Dish
Servings 12

Ingredients

  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter cold
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

Instructions

  1. *It's very important that you use chilled butter for this, that will make sure the biscuits are flaky. You can refrigerate or freeze the butter, don't use room temperature or melted butter.*
  2. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  3. In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  4. Slowly start to cut butter in the flour mixture. You can either grate the butter or I use a knife to cut into small pieces. Keep cutting butter in until it's all gone. You want the mixture to look like crumbs.
  5. Mix in buttermilk.
  6. Knead dough in bowl for 30 seconds.
  7. Transfer to a greased baking sheet and roll out with your hands into a 7x7 piece. With a knife, cut 12 sections but don't don't cut all the way or separate them. This will make them easy to rip apart when done.
  8. Bake 15 minutes.
  9. When out of the oven, cut into sections and serve hot.

Recipe Notes

Makes 12 biscuits.

 

 

Eating Apples and Carrots with Enceladus

Change your shirt, put towels on the floor, wear a poncho – things are about to get messy. Enceladus started eating solids! This post is in partnership with buybuy BABY.

At our 4 month pediatrician visit, we got the go ahead to start solids when we were feeling ready for it, so at 5 months we decided to give it a try.  After months of watching her Mom and Dad eat, Enceladus must have been practicing in her head, because on the first spoonful she reached out her hand, grabbed the spoon and shoved the pureed fruits into her mouth!  Success!

(We use the Fisher-Price Deluxe Booster Seat because it attaches to a chair and saves room in our apartment!)

Chocolate Banana Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting

Tracking PixelCHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE with THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING! This homemade from scratch cake is MOIST, easy to make and slides out of the 8×8 pan perfectly! The peanut butter frosting on top is what I consider the best frosting of all time – my family can’t get enough! If you’re looking for a chocolate birthday cake or holiday gift – make this cake! 

The season of gift giving is upon us and what’s a better way to say “I think you’re great, Happy Holidays!” than sending someone the gift of Chocolate Banana Cake With Peanut Butter Frosting?
healthy chocolate banana cake

I think sometimes the gift of homemade food is overlooked when it comes to the holidays.  Sure, you can brave the holiday lines at the department store to buy your sister those cashmere gloves you saw her eyeing up, but I can almost guarantee you that giving her a homemade cake will make her feel like the best (and loved) sister of all time!   A homemade cake is not only a physical gift, but there’s lots of emotional thought that goes into making it too! 

Did you know that psychologists have found that baking for loved ones promote a sense of well being not only for the recipient but for the baker as well?  Whenever someone gifts me a box filled with homemade cookies I still get weak in the knees and feel like it’s the most special gift ever!  

CHOCOLATE BANANA CAKE with THE BEST PEANUT BUTTER FROSTING! This homemade from scratch cake is MOIST, easy to make and slides out of the 8x8 pan perfectly! The peanut butter frosting on top is what I consider the best frosting of all time - my family can't get enough! If you're looking for a chocolate birthday cake or holiday gift - make this cake! 

First, let’s talk about this cake before we get to my favorite peanut butter frosting.

This is a Chocolate Banana Cake.  I want to tell you up front it is not “too banana-y”.  So if you have someone in the family that isn’t a big banana fan don’t be scared of this cake.  The cake is made with semi sweet chocolate chips and cocoa powder so it’s very decadent with chocolate.

Photographing Cats With Their Favorite Food Is Hard Work!

 

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tender & True Pet Nutrition. All opinions are 100% mine.

So here was the idea.  I was going to tell you all about how much our cats love Tender & True cat food (because they do).  I was going to photograph Toes specifically because she is always my food model, because well…. the lady loves food.  But then I took out a few cans of Tender & True food and instead of Toes, all 5 cats showed up.  Go figure!  One sniff of their favorite food and I’m surrounded by my fur babies!
