  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon shortening
  • 1 cup + 2 tablespoons buttermilk
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup vegetable oil
  • butter or jam, for serving (see note)


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees and grease a 2 inch deep 9x13-inch baking pan.
  • In a medium bowl whisk flour, baking powder, and salt. Add shortening and mix well. (You can use a hand mixer for this or you can transfer to a food processor to blend in the shortening.)
  • Add baking soda to buttermilk. Pour into flour mixture and blend well.
  • Transfer dough to a well-floured surface. Sprinkle dough with flour and knead a few times but do not over work the dough.
  • Roll dough out 1/2 inch thick. Use a 2-inch round cookie cutter to cut dough into as many circles as possible. (You could also use a jar lid or drinking glass to cut circles).
  • Dip the biscuits in the vegetable oil being sure to coat all sides, and place side by side in baking pan. (They should be touching each other).
  • Bake for 8-12 minutes or until golden brown. Serve hot with butter and jam.
