The easiest and best way to make biscuits is with yogurt, which produces tangy, tender, and flaky results. Buttermilk is my second choice.
- 2 cups all-purpose or cake flour, plus more as needed
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 to 5 tablespoons cold butter (more is better)
- 3/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons yogurt or buttermilk
