SimplyFoodByTy had me intrigued and I wanted to try his better than Popeyes Buttermilk Biscuits. Yes, dare I say. He said they are better than Popeyes and I said I wanted to be that one YouTuber to try it, rate it and tell everybody what I think.
For this recipe, you’ll need two and a half cups of flour, one and a half teaspoons of salt, two teaspoons of baking powder, and one fourth teaspoon of baking soda. Take all these ingredients and mix well. Next you’ll add a quarter cup of shortening and one stick of unsalted butter coat. Now Ty’s secret ingredient is mayonnaise, so I’m adding one third cup of it just as he suggests and mashing it all together with the potato masher.
After mashing everything together, place in the refrigerator for up to an hour to keep the ingredients nice and cold.
Now I’m going to add one cup of buttermilk to my mixture. Because I don’t have any buttermilk at home I’m going to make some from scratch.
For one cup of buttermilk add one tablespoon of lemon juice to milk. Let that sit for 10 minutes at room temperature before adding it to your mixture. After 15 minutes, I placed it into the fridge for 30 minutes, so it would be nice and cold.
Add your one cup of buttermilk into your mixture and begin to fold into itself. Fold roughly 15 times before rolling out onto a well floured surface. Once on a floured surface, you’re going to roll and fold and do this about six times. Roll it out into a rectangle about roughly 1.5 inches in thickness for your biscuit size. Cut out your biscuits, but do not twist the container or the device you’re using. You want to place a tiny bit of butter on the bottom of your cast iron so small you can’t even see it. Notice how I applied a thin layer of butter and then start to wipe it away. Bake between 15 and 25 minutes at 450 degrees Fahrenheit.
We baked ours for only 15 minutes and got this beautiful golden color. Once finished, brush the top with melted butter and honey.
Oh my goodness!
The smell is so good.
There’s no burn to the bottom, which is perfect, just like he (SimplyFoodByTy) said there wouldn’t be, so I’m going to try one and let you guys know how it tastes because if you’re curious and you’ve made it this far, congratulations. Let’s see how it goes….
Those layers, the layers. So good. Hold on…
