For the biscuits
2 cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
Pinch bicarbonate of soda
3 tbsp butter, cubed

For the biscuits
1. Preheat oven to 200ºC. Line a baking tray.
2. Sift together the dry ingredients, then rub in the butter and oil until it resembles crumbs.
3. Whisk the buttermilk and milk together, then add it to the flour mixture.
4. Turn out onto a lightly floured surface and gently press out until it is 2.5 cm thick.
5. Use a round cookie cutter to cut biscuits from the dough and arrange on the prepared tray.
6. Brush the top with extra milk and bake for 15 minutes.
For the gravy
1. Heat some oil in a pot over medium heat and fry the onions for 5 minutes, until golden.
