Ingredients
  

  • 2 ¼ cups 270 grams self-rising flour
  • ½ cup 1 stick, 113 grams cold butter (salted or unsalted), cut into small pieces
  • ¾ cup-1 cup 175-240 mililiters milk or buttermilk (can be dairy milk or non-diary)

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 450 F/230 C.
  • Place the flour in a large mixing bowl. If you want to add any herbs or spices you can add them here.
  • Add the pieces of cold butter and cut into the flour with a pastry cutter or fork until the consistency of coarse meal. If you want to add any cheeses or other add-ins you can stir them in here before adding the milk.
  • Add 3/4 cup of the milk and stir just until combined. You can use any milk you like or buttermilk if you want a tangy flavor. If the batter is very dry, add a little more milk until the consistency of a very thick batter. Do not over-mix. The batter will be quite lumpy.
  • Drop large mounds (about 1/4 cup each. I use a 2 oz scoop) onto a baking sheet. You can also use a cast iron skille that has been greased with butter.
  • Bake at 450 F/230 C for 18-22 minutes until golden brown
  • Brush with melted butter before serving if desired.

Notes

Variations
