Tag: Buttermilk Biscuits

Some baked goods today

First I did Buttermilk biscuits. They’re just flour, butter, buttermilk and goats milk.

Here’s the dough:


Yes, it’s a somewhat sticky dough so flour is a must.

But this is that dough, cut up and baked:


Those brown spots are the bits of goats milk that splattered. And why I use parchment paper.

And then I got an email from the New York Times to a recipe on their Cooking page for a Gruyere cheese puff.

Now you know I’ve sung the glory of Gruyere. I say it’s what Swiss cheese wishes it could be.

The recipe reminds me of the one for Dutch Baby, or even popovers. It uses eggs, milk, flour, salt, pepper and 3/4 cup shredded Gruyere cheese. It’s awesome.


Did that one in the cast iron pan. Buttered the pan up and it didn’t even stick – just wiped the pan out with paper towels. That’s why I love cast iron.

Baking Day Today

So I baked a couple things today.

First I did my favorite buttermilk biscuits. Pretty easy to make. As evidence:


Then of course because I was in the mood to bake and had three very ripe bananas I made Banana bread.


Not a bad looking loaf if I do say so. And I used a non-stick loaf pan and buttered and floured it so I was assured it would come out of the pan. It’s cooling off right now.

It’s just every now and then I like to bake things particularly when the temps get below 40F.
