Ingredients
  • 1 1/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 3/4 cup cake flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour, bench flour
  • 2 tablespoons melted unsalted butter
Directions
  • Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

  • Into a bowl, sift together the self-rising flour, cake flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, work the butter into the flour until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add the buttermilk, cheese, and green onions and, using your hands or a rubber spatula, stir just until the buttermilk and flour come together to form a dough, being careful not to overmix.

  • Lightly flour a work surface with the all-purpose flour. Turn out the dough onto the surface and press into a disk about 1/2-inch thick and 8 inches in diameter. Using a 3-inch round cutter dusted in flour, cut into rounds. (Be sure to press straight and downward when cutting the dough -- a twisting motion will prevent the dough from rising.)

  • Reform the scraps in order to make 7 biscuits. Place on a small baking sheet and brush the tops with the melted butter. Bake until golden brown, 10 to 12 minutes.

  • Remove from the oven and serve hot or at room temperature.
