Buttermilk Biscuits



Buttermilk Biscuits in the United States and Canada, and widely used in popular American English, is a small bread made with baking powder or baking soda as a chemical leavening agent rather than yeast.

Biscuits have a firm browned crust and a soft interior, similar to British English scones or the bannock from the Shetland Isles.

Biscuits, soda breads, and cornbread, among others, are often referred to collectively as "quick breads," to indicate that they do not need time to rise before baking.
