Since Mother’s Day is coming up, I thought I’d search for a recipe that would be easy for children to help with. The recipe I’d like to share is great for breakfast or dessert. I revised a recipe that I found online at twopeasandtheirpod.com for Nutella Drop Biscuits and they turned out great!
Nutella Drop Biscuits by Two Peas & Their Pod
2 1/4 cups flour
2 1/2 tsp. baking powder
2 tsp. sugar
3/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
6 tbsp. unsalted butter, cubed
1 cup buttermilk
1/2 cup Nutella
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl whisk together flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda and salt. Mix with fingers or pastry cutter until mixture resembles a coarse meal. Add buttermilk and stir until combined. Spoon Nutella over biscuit dough and cut through with a knife to swirl Nutella throughout the dough. Drop mixture onto parchment paper to make biscuits. Bake for 15-17 minutes or until light golden brown. Remove from oven and cool. Serve with breakfast or as a dessert with berries and whipped cream. Makes about 12 biscuits.
*My changes to make a delicious gluten free version:
– 2 cups Bob’s Red Mill gluten free 1 to 1 flour.
– Buttermilk substitute-1 tbsp. lemon juice plus regular milk to make 1 cup.
– Nutella substitute-Reese’s spreads peanut butter chocolate.
– Salt substitute-1/4 tsp. pink Himalayan Salt.
Enjoy and Happy Mother’s Day!
