Cat Head Biscuits

21 Apr

Light, airy, and huge… as big as a cat’s head!

Makes 4 large biscuits


1 cup Domata Recipe Ready Flour
1 tsp. Baking powder
1/2 tsp.. Salt
1/3 tsp. Baking Soda
2 Tbsp. Butter* (chilled in the freezer)
1/3 cup Milk (or Buttermilk)
3/4 tsp. White Vinegar (if using Buttermilk, omit the Vinegar)
1 egg Lightly beaten
  1. Preheat over to 450º
  2. Mix milk with vinegar, set aside for 10 minutes – milk will begin to curdle.
  3. In a large mixing bowl thoroughly combine the flour, baking powder, salt, and baking soda.
  4. Grate the butter into the flour using the small holed side of a box grater. Mix the butter into the flour so that there are no large balls of grated butter.
  5. Add curdled milk (or buttermilk) and beaten egg to the flour mixture and stir until the dry and liquid ingredients are combined.
  6. Batter will be sticky; hand sprinkle flour on top of dough, coat hands with flour and roll dough into a ball, gradually adding flour until dough is no longer sticky
  7. Roll dough out between 2 sheets of plastic wrap until about ½” thick, cut biscuits out and place on a greased sheet.
  8. Bake 8-10 minutes OR until golden brown.

    I would like to. Know if there is a recipe. For banana bread. Also zucchini bread. Thanks. Peter!

      I just use a regular banana bread recipe with Domata Flour as a substitute and it turns out nicely.

    I’ve been looking for a gluten free flour or mix to make biscuits, so far the ones I tried have left have been so-so or down right awful (one the dog wouldn’t even eat). These were heavenly. They looked good and tasted wonderful. Instead of freezing and grating the butter I did put the butter and the dry ingrediants in my mini food processor and mixed them. I also rolled it and formed the dough into a square and then just cut that into 4 squares.

    Your recipe includes 1/4 stick butter. Does that mean 1 stick of butter or 1/2 cup, or does that mean 1/4 of a stick of butter or 2 tablespoons?

      1/4 of a stick = 2 Tablespoons. I will edit the recipe for clarity. Thanks!

    Do you think this biscuit dough could also be used to make chicken ‘n dumplings?

    Does the biscuit dough freeze well? And to minimize dairy, do you think I could successfully sub with a non-dairy milk like unflavored, unsweetened almond milk using same curdling process?

    Thanks 🙂

      Almond milk is what I use and they turn out great. You can even turn it into buttermilk with the vinegar. Domata is all I use. I’m gluten and dairy free also.
