I was hoping for a light and tasty biscuit when I decided to switch up my regular biscuit and use whole wheat flour and Earth Balance spread. The results pleased me and I will be making these again.
Whole Wheat Biscuits
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1/2 cup all purpose flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1/3 cup Earth Balance natural buttery spread
3/4 cup buttermilk
Preheat oven to 450 F.
Sift together dry ingredients into bowl. Cut in the buttery spread until resembles coarse crumbs. Make a hollow in the mixture and pour in enough buttermilk to make a soft dough. Mix quickly with fork until dough clings together and leaves sides of bowl.
Turn out onto floured surface. Knead a few time until dough is manageable. Roll 1/2" thick. Cut with floured biscuit cutter. Place biscuts close together on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 10 minutes.
