Sam Choy's Kitchen recipe: Buttermilk Biscuits with Honey Poha Butter

2 cups cake flour
2 tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
½ cup cold butter
¾ cup buttermilk
Milk, for brushing the biscuits

Preheat the oven to four hundred and twenty five degrees

Into a bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Blend in the cold butter until the mixture resembles meal.

Add the buttermilk, stir the mixture until it just forms a dough, and gather into a ball. On a lightly floured surface knead the dough gently six times and pat it out into a rectangle, roughly one half inch thick.

Using a knife, divide the dough into twelve even sized squares. Separate the squares and invert the squares onto a lightly greased baking sheet.

Brush the tops of the squares with the milk, bake the biscuits in the middles of the oven for twelve to fifteen minutes, or until they are pale golden, and transfer them onto a rack. Serve the biscuits at room temperature with poha butter.

Poha Butter:
½ cup butter
2 tbsp Poha Berry Perserve
½ tsp brown sugar

In a mixing bowl, whip butter, preserves, and sugar until light and fluffy.
