Multigrain Biscuits

Author: Canadian Living

With double the fibre of white flour, multigrain flour offers more nutritional value and a nutty flavour. A small cutter makes for a dainty base that's perfect for a dollop of summer-fresh jam.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups multigrain bread flour (best-for-bread)
  • 2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cold butter cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg lightly beaten

Method

In large bowl, whisk together flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Using pastry blender, cut in butter until crumbly. Pour in buttermilk; stir with fork to make soft ragged dough.

With lightly floured hands, press dough into ball. On lightly floured surface, gently knead dough 10 times. Pat into 3/4-inch (2 cm) thick round. Using 2-inch (5 cm) floured cutter, cut out rounds, rerolling scraps. Place on parchment paper–lined baking sheet.

Brush tops with egg. Bake in 400°F (200°C) oven until golden, about 12 minutes. Transfer to rack to let cool.
