Buttermilk Biscuits are the perfect addition to almost any meal.
These are so easy a totally delicious.  It's takes me back to those Sunday mornings when my mom would make a huge breakfast spread because our family would come over almost every Sunday.  The smell of gravy simmer in the pan and biscuits baking, er burning, and my dad yelling from the living room "The biscuits are burning!" She passed that "wonderful" trait down to me, it's one I'm not too fond of, haha. My friend said to last night she thought biscuits were thing of the past. I'm so glad to say they are not!!! They are a thing of right now, that you can have on your table in no time flat!

Biscuits and Gravy

I'll admit this is our favorite way to have these golden beauties, smothered with this Amazing White Gravy or have them with breakfast, lunch, dinner, afternoon tea, the time to have these is really ANYTIME for any reason!

Here's what you need:

4 Cups of Flour (Unbleached All purpose or Whole Wheat Pastry are the only ones I've used and they both work great)
1 tablespoon + 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
1 teaspoon Salt (optional)
1 cup Unsweetened Applesauce
1 cup Plant milk (I use Almond milk)
2 teaspoons Vinegar (I use white)

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees F.
Make the plant buttermilk by adding the vinegar to your plant milk of choice, set aside
Place the flour, baking powder and salt (optional) in a large bowl wisk to combine. 
This is after the Applesauce has been "cut in" to the Flour

Add the applesauce, mix with a fork or a pastry cutter until the applesauce mostly combined and looks like the picture to the left. it's like "crumbles". 
Pour in the (Plant) buttermilk and stir just until the dough comes together. DO NOT OVER MIX. Your biscuit will be tough and bricks if you over mix.

Using a large table spoon drop spoonfuls of the mixture onto baking tray and bake until golden brown, about 20 to 25 minutes. 

I have a couple left over biscuits, that I'm about to devour with blackberry jam.... Follow me on Instagram @theplanteaters and Facebook and we'll share our favorite ways to top these golden girls, haha.

Enjoy and MUCH LOVE ~ Des!
