LOOKING for: fried biscuits

msprettykyJuly 26, 2007

So me and the DH went to dinner at Huber's in Starlight last night. Some of the best home cooking you have ever had. They bring out the best apple butter you have tried to go with fresh, hot fried biscuits. I have had fried biscuits at the chinese buffett before, but they taste nothing like these. You can tell it is a home made biscuit, nice and fluffy on the inside. Does anyone make these? My grandmother used to make skillet bread, but never did she fry biscuits.

I've never had them but I'm quite sure I'd like them, especially with good apple butter. Lots of online recipes call for biscuits in a tube cut in 1/2 & deep-fried.

Below is one from Nashville, Ind. that is from scratch.

I make these duyring the holidays, and they disapear fast.I suggest you make a test/small batch to see if this is what you are looking for.

1 qt. whole milk, room temp
1/4 c. sugar
3 pkgs dry yeast
1/2 c. lard or shortening, warmed
4-5 t. salt
7-9 cups flour

Add the yeast to the warm water and allow to dissolve.
Add the other ingredients mixing well,and allow to rise.
Turn out on floured board and knead , then roll out to about 1/2 inch thick.
Cut out the biscuits with 2 inch cutter, and drop into the hot oil.
The oil should be about 360-375 degrees. Do not fry too many at a time. Fry to golden brown. Do not allow dought to rise to high before frying. Do not allow the oil to get to hot or the biscuits will be soggy in the middle. Drain on brown paper bag or paper towels.

These have been in my family since I was a little girl, and that was a long time ago :)

This recipe makes about 7 dozen or so.
