Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits – A Reddit Recipe

Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits, homemade., biscuits and jam, biscuits and gravy, fluffy biscuits, easy biscuit recipe

We found this amazing Homemade Buttermilk Biscuit recipe on Reddit and just had to share.


All Reddit credit to mommystorms for this homemade buttermilk biscuit recipe, and a big THANKS for allowing us to share on our blog. We LOVE reading r/baking and this is the first time we found a recipe we felt we needed to share. Just look at how tall and flakey these biscuits are. So. Many. Layers!

Where’s the butter and honey?

Let’s get started.

INGREDIENTS (Makes 8-9 biscuits)

2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
4 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
3 tablespoons butter, cubed and frozen (simply chilled also works)
3 tablespoons shortening, chilled
1 cup buttermilk, chilled
1 tbsp butter, melted, for brushing (optional)


Baking Instructions

  1. To start, preheat your oven to 450 degrees.
  2.  In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar. Using a pastry blender, cut butter and shortening into dry ingredients until mixture looks like coarse crumbs; alternatively you can use your fingers to rub the butter and shortening into the flour mixture– but the faster the better, you don’t want the fats to melt!
  3. Make a well in the center and pour in the chilled buttermilk. Stir just until the dough comes together. The dough will be very sticky.
  4. Turn dough onto floured surface, dust top with flour and gently fold dough over on itself 5 or 6 times. This will create layers in the final baked biscuits. Press into a 1 inch thick round. Cut out biscuits with a 1.5 or 2-inch cutter, being sure to push straight down through the dough. Do not twist the cutter! Twisting the cutters inhibits rising. Place biscuits on baking sheet so that they are half an inch apart. Reform scrap dough, working it as little as possible and continue cutting. (Biscuits from the second or third pass will not be quite as pretty as those from the first, but they’ll still taste great.)
  5. Bake until biscuits are tall and lightly golden on top, about 15 minutes.
  6. Brush biscuits with melted butter right out of oven, if desired.

Our favorite way to eat fluffy, flaky homemade biscuits like these are straight out of the oven with butter and honey.


pcE6Xe2-818x1024 Homemade Buttermilk Biscuits - A Reddit Recipe


Here are some tips to ensure that your biscuits are nice and tall!
1. Preheat your oven well! At least 30 minutes before you bake the biscuits.
Make sure your baking powder/soda are really fresh.

2.Keep your fats really cold!

3.The folding technique helps create lots of layers in the biscuits so don’t skip that step.

4.Never use a rolling pin when shaping the dough before cutting; use your hands to pat it into shape. Using a rolling pin will compress the layers too much and you risk rolling the dough too thin, which would create flatter biscuits. The dough should be relatively thick when you cut out the biscuits.

5. Never twist the biscuit cutter; always cut the biscuits in a straight up and down motion.

Some of these may be obvious but I learned a couple of these tips the hard way! Hope you enjoy them!

We want to send out a big thanks to mommystorms for this homemade buttermilk biscuit.

Happy Easter

cake, bunny, gluten free, family, easter, easter Sunday,

Happy Easter from all of us at BakerMaker. We do hope your Easter was spent with family and loved ones.


The Bunny Cake

My grandma made our family’s annual Easter feast even better when she’d bake my brother and I a Bunny Cake. She’d work tirelessly for us because she knew how much we loved this cake at Easter. She’d mix her special cake recipe and add coins, 5, 10, 25 cents (wrapped in aluminum foil), bake, form the ears and legs out of fondant, paint the ears with a little red food coloring, add green food coloring to some of the shaved coconut to make it look like a bunny playing in the grass. It was a lot of work, but she loved doing it for us.

My brother and I always got to help our grandma bake, but never the Bunny Cake, until now.

Our grandma “retired” from baking a few years ago, at 90 and with very poor vision, she had decided to stop making the Bunny Cake and most everything else for that matter. It’s been a few years since we’ve had a Bunny Cake for Easter it so my brother decided it was time to bring it back.

Below is the finished product. It may not look a beautiful as the one’s our grandma made but it was delicious, and gluten free.

Make a Bunny Cake for your next Easter


20160326_122040_resized-576x1024 Happy EasterWhat You’ll Need

1 round cake pan
1 cupcake pan
1 large marshmallow for the tail
White fondant for the ears front feet and back legs
1 bag of traditional jelly beans
1 bag of shaved coconut
1 green food coloring
1 red food coloring
Box of toothpicks
Your favorite cake mix recipe
Your favorite frosting recipe








Take your favorite cake recipe and pour it into a round cake pan and bake. Don’t forget to save enough cake mix to make a cupcake for the head.

Bake this until perfect and let cool.

Release round cake from pan and cut in half.

Frost one half and stick piece together and place flat side down on serving tray.

Use toothpicks to hold cupcake to round cake (head to body)

Use fondant to make little front feet and place just under the head.

Make fondant rear legs

Frost it. Frost everything.

add coconut shavings

Add your fondant ears (use water and drop of red food coloring to make it look like a bunny.

take two cups of shaved coconut and place into a large Ziploc bag. Add 4-7 drops of green food coloring and gently mix it around to until completely covered. Add more drops if needed.

Lay “grass” around the body of the Bunny Cake

Use two pink jelly beans and cut the back side / larger side of the bean to make the bunny’s eyes.

One black jelly bean cut from the smaller end to shape the nose

Finish by spreading jelly beans all over the grass and around the bunny.


That’s it. Done.

Try your hand at making your own Bunny Cake for Easter. If you do, we’ve love to see it. Take a photo and share it with us on Facebook, Twitter or Pinterest.

My nephew having fun with our silicone oven gloves. He made them better. #Thanksgiving

Silicone Oven Glove, Silicone Glove

My nephew having fun with a silicone oven glove. He made them better.


Tyler, my nephew, told me that he learned how to make hand turkeys back in first grade. I told him that our BakerMaker silicone gloves would make a cool hand turkey, too. He laughed for a couple of seconds and then thought, “yeah, i could make a cool hand turkey out of that.” With that, I opened photoshop and showed him how to use the brush tool and change colors.

This is his first try at Photoshop.  Trust me, I helped him find the erase tool many, many times. This it the end result.

Pumpkin pie, Thanksgiving,

Happy Thanksgiving Pumpkin Pie Recipe and a Happy Thanksgiving to all on this day.

May you ALWAYS have room for dessert, this pumpkin pie dessert recipe.

1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tablespoon All-Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves (PERSONAL RECO: & a pinch more to taste)
3 large eggs
2 cups (or one 15 oz. can) pumpkin
1 1/4 cups light cream OR 1 (14 ounce) can EAGLE BRAND® evaporated milk

Use your favorite single pie crust recipe. If you do not have one, try this recipe from Food Network

1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons granulated sugar
3/4 teaspoon table salt
6 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, small dice
1/4 cup shortening
7 to 8 tablespoons ice water


Preheat oven to 400°F.

Make the crust. or use your favorite store bought brand.  Lightly grease a 9 inch pie pan that’s 1 1/4 inches deep. Roll out pie dough evenly into a circle and transfer to pie pan. Gentle crimp edges at the rim

Mix the Pie Filling
In a large mixing bowl, mix together the dry ingredients: white and brown sugars, flour, salt, and spices.
In a small bowl, mix together eggs, pumpkin, and cream or evaporated milk. Whisk into the dry ingredients.

When the oven is hot, place the pie pan on a baking sheet to catch any drips. Pour the filling into the unbaked pie shell.

Bake pie for 45 to 50 minutes, until the filling is set 2″ in from the edge. The center should still be wobbly. Remove the pie from the oven and cool on a cooling rack. The center will finish cooking as the pie sits.
