Bran Biscuits

Yield 8 biscuits


  • 3/4 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup shreds of wheat bran cereal
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/3 cup shortening

How to Make It

  1. Combine buttermilk and cereal; set aside. Sift together flour, baking powder, soda, and salt. Cut shortening into flour mixture with a pastry blender until mixture resembles coarse meal. Add cereal mixture, stirring with a fork until dry ingredients are moistened.

  2. Turn dough out onto a floured surface; knead 4 to 5 times.

  3. Roll dough to 1/2-inch thickness; cut with a 2 1/2-inch biscuit cutter. Place biscuits on a greased baking sheet. Bake at 400° for 12 minutes or until biscuits are lightly browned.
