Some Additional Tips On Popeye’s Biscuit Recipe :

Here we give some additional tips so that you get succeeded at one go and make a perfect buttermilk biscuit while using our version of Popeye’s Biscuit Recipe.  

  • Always use cold butter. This is the secret of giving multiple layers and flakiness into the biscuits.
  • To mix the butter with dry ingredients, you can also use a grater.
  • Place them on the sheet as close as possible. The purpose of doing this is they will not rise by side but only by height and make tall flaky biscuits.
  • Baking soda and baking powder are important in making it more fluffy and large-sized. So mix these ingredients accurately and well.   
  •  Always try to use fresh baking powder and baking soda.
  • The reason for using cold butter is when you put the biscuit-shaped dough into the oven, the moisture inside the cold butter will evaporate and help the biscuit to rise in size and shape.
  • Don’t mix the butter with the other ingredients finely. A little chunk of butter will help to taste it better. 
  • The bowl must be large enough, in which you can easily mix all ingredients well without spilling.
  • You can use milk instead of buttermilk but the taste may vary. When you are making a delicious recipe, don’t need to compromise with taste. So you can make buttermilk in your home or else you can buy it from any grocery store.
