To replicate Hardee's buttermilk biscuits, the ingredients needed include self-rising flour, baking powder, white sugar, vegetable oil, buttermilk, dry yeast and warm water. After combining the ingredients, letting the dough rest in the refrigerator overnight and baking for about 10 to 12 minutes, the biscuits are ready.
To start, dissolve 1 package of dry yeast in a large mixing bowl filled with 1/4 cup warm water. In a separate bowl, combine 5 cups self-rising flour, 1 teaspoon baking powder, 2 teaspoons white sugar, 1 cup vegetable oil and 2 cups buttermilk. Add this mixture to the dissolved yeast, making sure the ingredients combine well enough to make a dough. Next, let the dough rest, and set in the refrigerator. The dough is ready to be used after resting overnight and keeps in the refrigerator for one to two weeks.
When ready, take out the desired amount of dough from the refrigerator. Roll-out or pat the dough on a floured surface. Next, using a biscuit cutter or round glass dipped in flour, cut out biscuits from the dough, and place them on a greased baking pan. Finally, bake the biscuits in an oven heated at 425 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 10 to 12 minutes, until they become golden brown.
