My super easy whole wheat biscuits

I haven't ever actually eaten "authentic" biscuits. You know, the kind they serve in southern homes, or even the kind that come out of those supermarket refrigerated cans. 

But I was intrigued enough by them to try to make something like them. After all, some of the recipes I found seemed pretty easy to make, and I don't have to plan in advance (no yeast to proof and rise!)

So I read thru a whole bunch of recipes, even tried out a few, and here's what I came up with. My kids like them a lot, but I'm sure they are NOT authentic biscuits... that's ok. 



Mix together:
3 cups whole wheat flour  
4 teaspoons baking powder (I use aluminum free baking powder)
3 tablespoons sugar
1 teaspoon salt


Then, pour 1/2 cup oil and 1 cup milk into a measuring cup. No need to try to stir it up, they'll just quickly separate. Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix. Knead a few times.
Roll out on a silicone mat to about 1/2" thick. Cut into rounds using a glass or a cookie cutter.  Bake on an ungreased pan at 450F for 10 minutes, until lightly browned. (I used the convection oven setting)

My kids really like these with strawberry jelly... I serve them at any meal when I didn't bother to bake bread or bagels in advance, and feel like we need some. (Note: these are very whole-wheat-y.)

Let me know if you try them!

    1. Thank you! As far as the baking powder goes - they sell it at most health food stores in Israel. But I found that if I order a big bag of it (Bob's Red Mill Brand) from iherb or vitacost, i can get 10X as much for the price I used to pay at the health food store! (see this post for more info about ordering from iherb or vitacost: http://kosherfrugalmenus.blogspot.com/2012/04/online-shopping.html )
