So it was about 95 degrees today, much too hot to use an oven, but I really wanted to bake something.
It’s been ages since I’ve eaten at Red Lobster but the memory of those yummy Cheddar Biscuits lives on. Since I was making a hearty, healthy soup for dinner (recipe tomorrow!), I decided that I’d try to find a recipe for these decadent biscuits (since I was having a healthy soup, I figured I could splurge a bit). Unfortunately, every recipe I found called for Bisquick™ which is something I don’t regularly buy. Luckily, I found a substitute for the boxed mix and I must say, these biscuits were fabulous!
I have made and tasted many versions of red velvet cake, but this one stands out as a favorite. I call it "heritage" red velvet because it has been passed down, passed around -and now I'm passing it on to you! This recipe uses butter instead of shortening or oil, and it is bright red as opposed to the usual dark red or brown-red. The soft, moist crumb is the result of a healthy dose of buttermilk in the batter... ... and that is key !
