method

  1. Preheat the oven to 400oF (200oC) and line 2 baking trays with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, sift the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk the buttermilk, egg and oil together.  Add this to the flour mixture and stir just until blended.
  4. Use an ice cream scoop or 2 tablespoons to drop batter (about ¼ cup each) onto the prepared baking trays, leaving 2-inches between them.  Bake the biscuits for about 15 minutes until they are a light golden brown and lift away from the parchment easily.

Serve the biscuits warm from the oven, or re-heated in a low oven for 10 minutes.  The biscuits are best enjoyed the day they are baked.
