Biscuits are a breakfast staple in our house. We usually make them twice a month on the weekends…well, my husband does. He makes a mean homemade biscuit! Needless to say, he was showing me up in the kitchen and you know I can’t have that! I took his regular (but super awesome biscuit) and raised him a Sweet Cinnamon Biscuit.
These biscuits are delicious! Kinda like cinnamon rolls, you roll them out and put a layer of butter and then top with a cinnamon and sugar mixture. Everyone knows what happens when you put those items together…can we say, MAGIC! They don’t need anything, but a drizzle of honey will have you coming back for more. Try them for yourself!
Oh, and don't worry, I'll put the plain Jane biscuit on the blog one day :)
2c sifted all-purpose flour
1 tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
¼ tsp baking soda
¼ c vegetable oil
¾ c buttermilk
¼ c butter, very soft
½ c granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
Combine flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda in a medium bowl and mix well. Stir in vegetable oil. Add buttermilk and stir just until blended.
Note: Dough will be very sticky!
Knead the dough on a lightly floured surface until smooth. Roll dough into a 15x8” rectangle (eyeball it).
Preheat oven to 400F. Grease a 9” round baking pan lightly.
Spread butter over the dough. Combine granulated sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and mix well. Sprinkle over butter. Roll up rectangle, jelly roll fashion, starting from one long side. Pinch seam to seal.
Cut the roll into 1 ½” slices. Arrange the slices, cut side up, in prepared baking pan. Bake until lightly browned, about 15-20 mins. Remove from oven. Drizzle honey over the top if desired. Serve hot.
