Simple Cream Biscuits: That’s why I love my skillet


0

Cream Biscuit is one of the easiest thing that you can make ^^, and it requires very short list of ingredients too.



With only five (or less if you use salt butter), you can have delicious and light biscuit to serve at anytime of the day. Serve with butter and jam for breakfast or tea time, or serve it instead of bread at lunch or dinner ^^.
Now, you might want to ask me why I use skillet instead of baking pan for this recipe. Actually you can use skillet for any biscuits or scone recipe. Because the cast iron skillet is very heavy and thick, it will heat slowly and it’s the baking pan that this kind of quick bread loves. As the base of it will get hot slowly, so the shape of the biscuit is better (I talked about this before, we don’t need a lot of heat at the base when start baking). But it’s better than that, because after baking, the skillet will stay warm (or the right thing to say is “very hot”, haha), and your biscuits will stay warm too.
This recipe is the simple or basic one, there is no sugar in the list, as you can serve it the way you want (sweet or savoury) but if you want it to be lightly sweet, 1- 1 1/2 tbsp of sugar is enough, (mix it with flour mixture before adding the butter).
