Biscuits are a crowd favourite. They're yummy, fluffy, and when using this recipe uber easy and cheap to make! This vegan recipe tricks you into believing that they are loaded with non-vegan ingredients. They are absolutely delicious! You will need:
2 cups of flour
1 1/2 tablespoons of magic powder
3/4 tablespoons of sea salt
4 tablespoons of vegan, unsalted butter (I used earth balance)
1 cup of almond milk
Before you start, preheat your oven to 425 degrees as the biscuits like a high heat to make them crispy on the outside and fluffy on the inside. Add the flour, magic powder, and sea salt into a bowl and whisk together. Add in the COLD vegan butter and combine with a pastry cutter. The consistency will be like sand. Make a well within your bowl and add in the almond milk a 1/4 cup at a time. The mixture should be quite sticky when its ready to kneed. Flour your surface and need your dough roughly 5 or 6 times. Do not overwork your dough as they will become hard and flat. (Unfluffy biscuits = yucky biscuits!) Flatten your dough into about a 1 inch thick layer and cut into shape with a biscuit cutter or a glass. Place your biscuits on your pan and let them all gently touch so they'll rise in unison. Add melted butter to the top of each for a nice golden top. Let them bake for about 15-20 minutes or until they're lightly golden brown!
This is such a versatile recipe and you can add herbs or cheese (if you don't care for vegan). These biscuits are delicious alone but with jam or vegan butter, they are even more scrumptious! Also, all the ingredients should be ones that you already have on hand and are pretty cheap. I make these biscuits at any time of the day. I've made these for a soul warming midnight snack before, and they really do hit the spot!
Enjoy and happy eating!
