These are American-style biscuits, which means they resemble scones and are meant to be eaten with soup or stew like dumplings. You can usually find kelp powder at health food shops.


Makes: 12 biscuits

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • pinch salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons white sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons thyme
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons savoury
  • 1 teaspoon powdered kelp
  • 1 tablespoon dried parsley
  • 1 tablespoon dried basil
  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup buttermilk

  1. Preheat oven to 230 degrees C.
  2. Sift all dry ingredients, including spices, into a mixing bowl. Lightly toss with a fork to mix, then rub in the butter until it forms pea-sized pieces.
  3. Slowly drizzle in the buttermilk while lightly tossing the mix with a fork. Stir until all the ingredients are moistened, but don't over mix.
  4. Turn dough out onto a floured surface and knead 4-5 times or until it just comes together. Pat it down into a circle about 2cm thick and cut into biscuits with a 5cm round cutter.
  5. Place biscuits on a baking tray and bake 8 minutes or until golden brown. Serve warm with soup or stew.
