Brown Sugar Bacon Biscuits are basically irresistible.
Total Time:35 minutes
1/2 cup plain flour
1/2 cup whole wheat plain flour
1/6 cup brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 ounce cold unsalted butter, cut into chunks
2 slices bacon, cut in small pieces and cooked until crisp
1/2 cup buttermilk
Preheat your oven to 425F (220C) and line a baking sheet with parchment.
In a mixing bowl, gently whisk together plain flour, whole wheat flour, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt until well combined.
Use your clean fingers to rub the cold butter into the dry ingredients until you have a mixture resembling wet sand.
Stir in your bacon pieces to evenly distribute.
Finally, stir in the buttermilk with a spatula or wooden spoon until the mixture just comes together.
Turn your biscuit dough out onto a lightly floured surface, and gently press and fold it together. Pat your dough out to form a rectangle that's about an inch thick. Use a pizza cutter to cut your rectangle into six pieces. You'll have square biscuits, but you also won't have any wasted dough.
Transfer your biscuits to your baking sheet and bake for 10-12 minutes. The biscuits should be golden brown on top.
