Think those Black Pepper + Basil Biscuits look good?
It gets better . . .
Perfect for Valentine's Day breakfast!
What you'll need . . .
- 2-1/2 cups bread flour
- 1/2 cup cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup pure cane sugar
- 1-1/2 tablespoons baking powder
- pinch salt
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 1 cup soy or almond milk
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Method . . .
- Preheat your oven to 425 degrees F. Lightly grease a baking sheet or line with parchment.
- Whisk together the flour, cocoa powder, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Then pour in the wet ingredients and mix until dough forms. Knead a few times until everything is moistened.
- If dough is too wet/sticky, add more flour 1 tablespoon at a time. Sometimes measurements don't work perfectly, especially this time of year. It all depends on your flour (I used King Arthur), cocoa powder (I used Nestle), and the humidity.
- Lightly flour a work surface (or use a layer of plastic wrap above/below dough) and roll with a pin or flatten with your palm the dough until it is around 1 inch thick.
- Using a round cookie cutter (I used a Ball jar lid ring), cut dough into 12 biscuits.
- Bake for 12-14 minutes, until biscuits are lightly browned. Be careful not to over-bake or they will get dry.
- Let cool a few minutes before serving warm.
