Whether you decide to use them for breakfast or an after-dinner dessert, biscuits are a perfect choice for every occasion. This versatile, buttery dish can be used for many different purposes. It was always a treat to wake up for breakfast and see some biscuits on the table. If you want to make this tasty and flaky dish yourself, you can make biscuits in the oven. And I always use 350 degrees Fahrenheit to bake the biscuits. And many people ask me this. How long to bake biscuits at 350 degrees? Let’s talk about this in this guide as well as tips on the recipe for homemade biscuits baked in oven.
With the oven set at 350 degrees Fahrenheit, you will only need to bake biscuits for 20 minutes to get the best results. And when the baking is completed, you can expect a light, buttery biscuit that is soft and flaky on the inside with a light golden color on the crust. You should be able to pull your biscuit apart in layers because of how flaky it is. If it was baked correctly, it should be a light tan color with lightly crisped edges. The best kind of biscuit is buttery, soft, and fluffy, so aim for these results when you bake.
If you want to bake biscuits at different temperatures, increase or decrease in intervals of 25 to see what temperature works best for you. Baking at 375 degrees Fahrenheit will give you biscuits in a quicker time, but they won’t be as fluffy and soft. Higher oven temperatures draw out moisture from your biscuits which can make them a bit drier. This isn’t too high of a temperature though, so consider this option if you want faster results. If you bake at a lower temperature of 325 degrees Fahrenheit, your biscuits will be soft. But you will have to wait longer to eat them. Lower temperatures are better for bakery products, but you can get the same results at 350 degrees. Ultimately, use whatever temperature works best for you and your biscuit preferences.
The best temperature to bake biscuits at is 350 degrees for a couple of reasons. Most bakery-type treats do better when they are baked at lower temperatures, but not too low. Baking at 350 degrees allows the biscuits to rise and cook in an even manner. Too high of a temperature can dry out your biscuit and make it hard while too low will take longer than necessary to bake. For a delicious biscuit in an acceptable amount of time, bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
There is nothing better than a warm and flaky biscuit after a long day. This dish is fairly easy to make. I like to use this easy biscuits recipe to make them at home. And here’s how to make homemade biscuits from scratch.
Go to the store and buy salt, flour, baking powder, buttermilk, butter, sugar, and parchment paper.
Start by mixing 3 cups of flour, 8 teaspoons of baking powder, 1 1/2 teaspoons of salt, and 4 teaspoons of sugar. Whisk until everything mixes. Next, cut the butter into small 1 inch cubes and add 1 1/2 sticks into the dry ingredients bowl. Use your hands to press the pieces of butter into the mixture. Start to add in 1 cup of buttermilk, make sure to add it gradually. If the mixture seems to dry after everything has been added, pour in a tablespoon of buttermilk to moisten the dough.
Do not knead the dough, instead, make it into a rectangle and fold it over multiple times until the dough becomes smooth. Roll it out until it’s 1/4 inch thick and use a biscuit cutter to get your pieces out.
Place a piece of parchment paper on the baking sheet and start to evenly put your biscuits on. Leave a little room in between to allow for rising
Set the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your biscuits in the oven and let them bake for 20 minutes. After baking is done, take them out and let them cool for a bit. Enjoy!
A 20-minute wait isn’t a lot of time when baking, but there is a bit of work that goes into the preparation. Thankfully, there are a few tips that can help to speed up the process a little and save you some time in the future.
Start by making a list of everything you need to make this dish. Go through your cabinets and fridge and make sure you have everything you need. Do this before you start cooking to avoid having to go out and buy what you’re missing the day you bake.
This might sound backward, but another way to speed up the process is to spend more time in the kitchen. By this, I mean take a whole day to bake a lot of biscuits so that you can freeze the leftovers. To properly freeze biscuits, make sure they cool completely and wrap them up well. Biscuits will last about 2-3 months in the freezer before going bad, so make sure to enjoy them before then.
If you are using a convection oven, turn on the fan to force the hot air to circulate around the biscuits. This will allow the biscuits to cook faster.
It’s not uncommon to eat biscuits with nothing on them, but I prefer to add a few extra ingredients to make them taste even better.
For starters, use some jelly on your biscuit if you are looking for a sweeter taste. I love to have a biscuit after dinner for dessert, so I use strawberry jelly, honey, or butter to turn this dish into a sweet treat.
If you are making these for breakfast, add eggs and cheese inside to make a breakfast-themed biscuit. You can put any item on your biscuit that you enjoy.
I also love to put chicken and cheese on my biscuits to make a quick lunch or snack for whenever I get hungry.
You can add so many things to make your biscuit better, it’s up to you! So grab everything you need from the store and have fun baking this buttery and flaky dish at home!
