Milled Wheat Biscuits – Soaked Grains

I found this recipe that called for soaking your grains and adding apple cider vinegar to the recipe and thought…hmmm, well, maybe..  This is now my new favorite biscuit recipe 🙂

Milled Wheat Biscuits-Soaked Grains

  • 2 1/2 cups milled wheat flour (I milled soft white wheat berries)
  • 6 tablespoons high-quality butter
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons aluminum-free baking powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon sea salt

Put flour in a bowl and cut in the butter until a crumble forms.  Add milk and apple cider vinegar.  Cover with dampened dish towel or cheese cloth and allow to sit overnight to soak your grains.

After the soaking period, add the baking soda, baking powder and seasalt.  Knead these ingredients into the dough, approximately 10-15 kneads.  Roll dough out to just under desired thickness of biscuits.  Cut into biscuits.  You can use a biscuit/cookie cutter for round biscuits, but I just cut mine into squares/rectangles like the girl did from the original recipe and it worked out great.

Bake at 450˚ for 8-10 min or if baking on a stone about 11-13 min.   We ate ours with gravy made from bacon grease and milled wheat.  Well, I also snuck some in with strawberry preserves for a snack 😉
