4 cups of butter
2 tbsp baking powder
1 cup of butter
1 cup of buttermilk
Veronica squinted at the recipe. Her grandmother had been an excellent cook. She was sure she had seen her make biscuits. She scoured her memory for a memory, but couldn’t find it. No matter, it was a simple recipe, but it would certainly impress her boyfriend.
She measured out the flour, the butter and the buttermilk. Then turned to the baking powder.
What was a tbsp?
Veronica thought it was less than a cup. If she put in 2 cups she would be sure to have enough.
Her boyfriend was going to love this.

Well, with five cups of butter, what’s not to like?
AS long as it’s real butter and not margarine.
When my wife and I first started dating I discovered margarine in her refrigerator. I walked to the nearest convenience store and bought a pound of butter. She learned the error of her ways, and our relationship survived. We never have margarine in our house.
We don’t use it either.
Butter only. Margarine is the spawn of Satan…
Apparently margarine is actually clear. The yellow is from food coloring. There used to be laws to make people add the coloring at home just so they could see how disgusting it really is.
Pros: Margarine is much lower in saturated fat than butter, and it is made from vegetable oils, so it contains no cholesterol. Cons: Although it is lower in saturated fat, stick margarine still contains about the same amount of total fat and calories as butter.
I try to avoid both as much as possible…
Butter is a health food for the soul.
That it surely is!
I have been there and done that! Was cooking dessert for 144 people and the recipe was for 4. It required two tsp of baking powder. I multiplied it by about 30, except I thought tsp was tablespoon and not teaspoon. Believe me, the dessert pushed its way through every crack in the ovens.
Isn’t butter amazing?? I’d probably eat those anyway. Pretty sure all that butter would cut the baking powder and it would all work out just fine. 🙂
Optimism is a wonderful thing.
I think Bruce’s scenario just might be her outcome.
This sounds like how so many of my cooking adventures begin.
Dare I ask how they end?
😂 I did this once making cookies when I was 12. I ‘read’ 1.5 cups of baking soda when really, of course, it was 1.5 tbsp.
They were the worse cookies ever!
One of my older brother’s friends came over (I had a huge crush on him) and he wouldn’t stop eating them.
Hopefully Veronica is dating my older brother’s friend! He will appreciate the biscuits for sure. 😂
That’s fantastic! You should have done it again on purpose to impress him!
You definitely need to change some of that butter to flour, and maybe add a mushroom or two?
They’re American biscuits. The flour is just an excuse to hold the butter together.
You made me snort.
I’d just mix a bunch of butter with salt and sugar and call it a day.
Haha, that’s all a fellow really needs.
I’m sure her boyfriend loves what she puts in two cups. BTW your recipe has no flour. Just sugar and butter which is okay by me
It’s the only way to go!
So the way to a man’s heart is lots of baking powder? I must try this…
