elsewhere: southern biscuits & citrus yogurt cake

I thought I had biscuit-making all sewn up. And then my friend came from North Carolina with a bag of biscuit mix (Just Add Buttermilk!) and my world view changed. You can read just how fluff*tastic they were along with why Southern flour is better (along with a few tips & tricks from other bloggers) in my latest post for ReadyMade magazine.

Over at Poppytalk, I talk bundt and share a citrus yogurt cake recipe made with my stash of Seville Oranges. It’s a super easy cake to make that looks as beautiful and bright as it tastes.

    Hey! Thanks for the Thursday afternoon reading. Not sure I'm prepared to have my mind changed about homemade biscuits, though 🙂

    ok…I barely recover from the brownies and now it's biscuits….off to the kitchen I go….perhaps not as fluffy as yours but they'll have to do 🙂

    Lo, my mind isn’t exactly changed! I loved the fluffiness but wasn’t keen on the weird chemical flavours. Hope you enjoyed the read!

    Dawn, everyone needs biscuits.

    Haha, I hope you enjoy the biscuits!

    Thanks Joanne, it’s a good one.

    I made the cirtus yogurt cake last week and it was amazing! No Seville oranges, but substituted lemons, and used one Meyer lemon and one regular lemon for the glaze … it was moist and tender and lemony all in one! May try it with blood oranges but I feel that it would lose that tartness, which is fantastic … thoughts?

    Eleana, I think it would be really good with blood oranges and would give the batter a pink hue (though that would disappear when baked). I would reduce some of the sugar, though, otherwise you’d end up with a too-sweet cake. So glad you loved this cake. It’s a goodie!
