Sour Cream Biscuit

The Richmond Community Kitchen resumed this week for the fall 2006 session. The Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen had it’s first meeting on Wednesday.

Jean who is the leader of the Gilmore Park Church Community Kitchen has the honour to be the first to share her recipes. She shared her Sour Cream Biscuit and Apple Cabbage Coleslaw with us.


The Sour Cream Biscuit is a very simple and quick recipe to prepare. All the ingredients are easily available in our pantry or refrigerator. It took less than 30 minutes from start to end to make it.


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 tablespoons baking powder
  • 1 1/2 cups sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup raisins (if desired)

Preheat the oven to 450F.

IMG_7968_edited-1Mix the flour with salt, baking powder and baking soda.Add in the parmesan cheese if desired. The parmesan cheese gives extra flavour to the biscuit.
IMG_7969_edited-1Fold in the raisins. You may use chocolate chip or grated cheddar cheese if you like.
IMG_7970_edited-1Mix in the sour cream to the flour mixture to the consistency of a roll dough, adding 1 teaspoon of milk if the dough is too stiff.
IMG_7972_edited-1Turn the dough onto a lightly floured board. Knead lightly and pat down to 1 inch thick. Cut the dough with a floured cutter or simply use a knife to cut the dough into equal parts of squares if you do not have a cutter. Make sure they are the same size so that they bake evenly at the same time.
IMG_7973_edited-1Place the cut out dough on a well oiled pan or parchment lined pan.Bake in the 450F oven for about 12 minutes.This recipe makes 12 small biscuits.

You may enjoy the biscuit with butter or your favourite jam. The biscuit is great for after school snacks or a simple lunch with apple and cabbage coleslaw.

    This is interesting that American call them biscuits. In the UK, they call them scones. I made them for my birthday this year and brought them to work. I still cannot believe how easy to make and yet, they taste lovely! I have posted them on my site sometimes ago:
