As one of the few remaining water-powered mills in the United States, Butte Creek Mill is dedicated to producing high-quality, fresh-milled flours that bring the taste of history to your kitchen. Among our prized offerings is our buttermilk biscuit mix, made from freshly milled soft white wheat flour. This flour is the secret behind perfect buttermilk biscuits, elevating them to extraordinary levels of flavor and texture.

Buttermilk biscuits have long been a beloved staple in American cuisine, cherished for their flaky layers, buttery flavor, and tender crumb. The secret to their delectable texture lies in the harmonious combination of high-quality ingredients and proper technique. Traditionally, buttermilk biscuits are made using flour, buttermilk, butter, baking powder, and a pinch of salt. Each ingredient is crucial in achieving the perfect biscuit, but the flour is particularly significant.

Fresh Milled Soft White Wheat Flour: Our Secret Behind Perfect Buttermilk Biscuits

For baked goods, flour quality is one of the most significant elements of a delicious product. Have you ever wondered how old the flour is in a store-bought box mix or even the flour you buy at the grocery store? At Butte Creek Mill, we use our fresh milled soft white wheat flour for our buttermilk biscuit mix, and here’s why:

1. Delicate Gluten Structure: Soft white wheat has a lower protein content than hard wheat, forming less gluten. This results in a tender, delicate crumb that is ideal for biscuits, as it allows them to rise beautifully without becoming tough.

2. Freshness: Fresh milling retains the natural oils and nutrients found in the wheat kernel. This enhances the flavor and ensures that the flour remains nutrient-rich, making our biscuits more wholesome.

3. Flavor Profile: Soft white wheat imparts a subtle, slightly sweet flavor to the biscuits, perfectly complementing the tangy buttermilk and buttery richness. The freshness of the flour amplifies this natural sweetness, offering a depth of flavor that pre-packaged or older flours cannot match.
