These biscuits are literally swimming in butter prior to baking, hence the name. No need to butter them since they are buttery and fluffy. Perfect for breakfast or for dinner. Great use of pantry items during this stay-at-home order during the Coronavirus pandemic.
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).
Place butter in an 8x8-inch glass or ceramic baking dish. Microwave for 1 minute. Stir butter and keep microwaving at 20-second intervals until butter is fully melted.
Sift flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt into a bowl. Add buttermilk and stir until combined. Pour over melted butter and spread over the melted butter. Use a bench scraper to cut dough into 9 equal pieces.
Bake in the preheated oven until biscuit tops start to brown, 20 to 25 minutes.

The best flavour of the flour can make a real deal to your bread. Different makers do vary. Extra-strong or Canadian flours, which are naturally higher in gluten, may give you a better rise than standard dough flours – especially if you’re making wholemeal bread , which doesn’t always rise as well as clear bread.
To make this in a dough , add all the menus to your breadmaker and follow the makers instructions.
A bread first rising can be make in the fridge overnight . This slows down the time it takes to rise to double its size, giving it a deeper flavour. It’s also a great limit , as you can start it night before , then finish it off the next day.
