Introduction

Here is a recipe that is super cheap to make. I usually double the recipe because my family loves them. They go great with soup and are very filling

Ingredients

Serves: 12

  • 500 millilitres flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 188 millilitres milk (or water)
  • 63 millilitres oil

Method

  • Mix dry ingredients in a bowl.
  • Measure water or milk and oil in another container, then dump into the center of the dry ingredients. Stir just until blended, if they are a bit powdery this is just right.
  • Drop large scoops of dough with a soup spoon onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  • Bake in a 425 degree oven for 20 minutes. You can pat the biscuits to shape them, but my family likes the crispy edges that come from leaving them untouched-up. The insides are fluffy and light. These are absolutely best straight from the oven, but they keep alright on the pan with a dish towel over them or in a zip lock bag left open to retain some crispness (after they are totally cool). I have also made cheap gravy using 2 cups water, 2 tsp bullion (or whatever is suggested on the package) and 1/2 cup flour. Stir together and heat in a sauce pan until thick and bubbly, season with pepper to taste.
