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.
KFC Biscuits Recipe
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.
Enjoy your soup and hope you’re staying healthy and warm!
KFC Flaky BiscuitsPrint
- 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
- *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.*
- Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
- In a bowl mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
- 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.
- Mix in buttermilk.
- Knead dough in bowl for 30 seconds.
- 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.
- Bake 15 minutes.
- When out of the oven, cut into sections and serve hot.
