Ingredients

1 packet (1/4 oz / 7 g) active dry yeast
2 tbsp (30 mL) sugar
1/3 cup (75 mL) luke warm water (105º to 115ºF / 41º to 46ºC)
2-1/2 cups (625 mL) all-purpose flour
1 tbsp (15 mL) baking powder
3/4 tsp (3 mL) salt
1/2 tsp (2 mL) baking soda
5 tbsp (75 mL) cold margarine, cut into pieces
3/4 cup (175 mL) low-fat buttermilk

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400ºF (200ºC). Sprinkle yeast and 1  tsp (5 mL) sugar over water. Stir until dissolved, then let  stand about 5 minutes.
  2. Whisk flour, remaining sugar, baking powder, salt, and  baking soda in large bowl. Cut in margarine with pastry  blender or two forks until mixture resembles coarse  crumbs. Add yeast mixture and buttermilk. Stir with fork  just until soft dough forms. Do not overmix. Cover with  plastic wrap and let rest 30 minutes.
  3. Dust work surface lightly with flour. Turn out dough and  gently knead for 30 seconds. Pat into a round about 3/4  in (2 cm) thick. Let rest 5 minutes. Cut out as many  biscuits as possible with floured 2-1/2 in (6 cm) biscuit  cutter. Gently knead dough scraps together and let rest  5 minutes before patting out again. Cut a total of 12  biscuits. 
  4. Place biscuits 1 in (2.5 cm) apart on a baking sheet. Let  rest 15 minutes. Bake until golden, about 15 minutes.  Serve warm.
