Step 1 –Preheat the oven to 475 degrees F.

Step 2 –In a bowl, combine 2 1/4 cups of the all-purpose flour, the cake flour, the salt, the baking powder, and the baking soda together.

Step 3 –Cut 1 cup of the cold butter into the flour mixture until it is crumbly and the butter chunks can be felt when touching the mixture. Be sure not to overmix.

Step 4 –Add the buttermilk to the dough mixture and mix until the dough is slightly sticky and just combined.

Step 8 –Repeat the folding process three times for a total of six folds. Be careful not to overwork the dough while folding. If the dough gets too sticky, sprinkle with the extra all-purpose flour.

Step 11 –Place the dough pieces on a silicone baking mat and brush with the remaining melted butter.

Step 12 –Bake the biscuits for 5 minutes.

Step 13 –Reduce the heat to 425 degrees F, without opening the oven, and bake the biscuits until they are warm and fluffy, about 8-10 minutes.

Step 14 –Let the biscuits rest, about 2-3 minutes.

Step 15 –Serve the biscuits warm.
