  • 10 oz all-purpose flour (2 1/4 cup lightly spooned and levelled)
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3 oz cold butter (6 tbsp)
  • 11 oz by weight buttermilk (1 1/3 cups)


  • Preheat oven to 425ºF. Line a rimless baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  • Grate the butter into the flour mixture and whisk again to combine.
  • Measure in the buttermilk and switch to a wooden spoon or silicone spatula to fold the ingredients gently together until a shaggy dough forms. It will not be totally uniform, and that's ok.
  • Spoon dough on to prepared baking sheet. You'll have 5 5-oz biscuits. Bake 10 minutes, rotate pan, and bake 8-10 minutes more, until golden and tops feel springy (not soft) when you gently press down on the centre.


It's easiest and most accurate to use a scale. See notes in the post above. You can make smaller biscuits, simply cut the baking time down. Start checking doneness at 12 minutes for biscuits half the size.
