Amount Measure Ingredient Features
473 ml cake flour
plus 2 tablespoons
1E+1 ml baking powder
1.3 ml baking soda
1.3 ml salt
0.5 each margarine
stick, cold, cut in small cubes
* Camera
177 ml buttermilk


Heat oven to 450℉ (230℃) F. Have a baking sheet ready.

In a medium bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Cut in margarine with pastry blender, or work in with fingertips until lumps are no larger than small peas. Stir in buttermilk with a fork until mixture clumps together. Press dough into a ball.

On a lightly floured surface with a lightly floured rolling pin, roll dough into a 10x6 inch rectangle. With the long edge facing you, fold in both short ends so they meet in center. Fold dough in hal (as if you were closing a book), forming a packet 4 layers thick. Roll dough into a 6 inch square.

With a floured knife, cut dough into 16 squares, using a straight downward motion with each cut (don't saw dough). Place biscuits 1½ inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.

Bake 10 to 12 minutes until biscuits are lightly browned. Remove to a wire rack to cool.

Serve with butter, jam and tea if desired.
