If you’re trying bread for the first time, you must be nervous about how your biscuit will look. take a deep breath! In this recipe we explained to you all the techniques of a professional baker in the simplest way possible. Just follow our instructions step by step and nothing goes wrong.
Step 1: Getting started
Start by preheating the oven at 400°F. Then, grease your baking tray with oil or cooking spray and it aside.
Step 2: Dry ingredients first!
Sift the mentioned quantities of All-Purpose Flour, Salt, Sugar, Baking Powder, and Baking Soda in a large mixing bowl and whisk. Cut in vegetable shortenings into the size of small peas, and mix until with a spatula until you have coarse crumbs.
Step 3: Knead the dough
Pour 1 cup of curd and continue mixing until all ingredients are well mixed. Don’t worry if the dough is sticky and lumpy at this point. Sprinkle a handful of flour on the counter top and roll the dough. Now knead the dough gently for 10-12 minutes. You may want to re-flour the surface to avoid sticking. The dough quickly loses its strength and turns into a single smooth ball. Kneading is an important step in baking. It defines the ultimate look and feel of your baked goods.
Step 4: Give it a shape
Equally, divide the batter into two halves. One by one roll out each half into an 8-inch circle with ½ inch thickness. Cut out 2-inch biscuits using a biscuit cutter. Place the biscuits on the greased pan. Knead the leftover dough lightly and repeat rolling and cutting once more.
Step 5: Glaze it on top
Your biscuits are ready to go inside the oven after this one step – milk wash. Brush the tops of biscuits with whole milk. This process creates the appetizing golden color we see, but more importantly, it develops the savory flavor of browned foods.
Step 6: Almost there!
Set a timer of 5 minutes and out your baking tray into the middle rack of the oven. Take them out when they turn golden brown- crispy and flaky on the top just as you like it! The final step is to brush your cooked biscuits with butter IMMEDIATELY after you take them out of the oven.
These crispy and buttery biscuits taste best when served warm. Also, the aroma released while it is baked will tempt you to try it as soon as they get out of the oven. It’s guaranteed, these biscuits are irresistible in taste and aroma.
SECRET SUCCESS TIPS FROM BAKER :
Knead your dough perfectly: This is one baker’s technique that will help you assess the quality of your dough and whether it is ready to be baked. It is called the window-pane test. Take a golf-sized ball of dough and stretch it sideways between your fingers. If the dough is elastic enough to stretch into a thin sheet without breaking consider it perfectly done. But in case it breaks or tears it needs to be kneaded a little more.
Shape your biscuits without a cutter: Don’t have biscuit cutter? This easy hack is the solution to your problem. Use a circular container (it can be a bowl or lid of a jar) as a stencil and press it’s sharp edge onto the dough to cut out biscuits.
