Baking Powder Biscuits

Posted by Solitary Dancer on February 25, 2008

Karen and Bill’s Baking Powder Biscuits

I met Karen and Bill over at Dr. B’s place and they are the nicest people. Actually I met Karen first and then she married Bill. Great couple and fabulous cooks. Here’s a great recipe that they have shared over at Dr. B’s forums. I haven’t tried this but I have faith, given their reputation, that this will be fabulous.

It’s better to read Karen’s words. Here’s Karen and her Baking Powder Biscuit Recipe

As I’ve mentioned before, I have developed an intolerance for almonds (and almond meal cry), and I can’t eat gluten, so we’ve been trying various coconut flour recipes. I made these biscuits for dinner tonight, and they were excellent. I made the cheese version, but I’ll also include the plain biscuit version of the recipe, which I intend to try soon.

 

(NOTE: Karen has tried the plain biscuits and has used them as a base for strawberry shortcake. She gives them a thumbs up as well)

 

CAUTION: I set the oven at 350 degrees rather than the 400 given in the recipe and they had started to burn after only 12 minutes, so watch them carefully.

 

Cheese Biscuits

4 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon onion powder (I didn’t have any so I used seasoned salt)
1/3 cup sifted coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese, shredded

 

Blend together eggs, butter, salt and onion powder. Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk into batter until there are no lumps. Fold in the cheese. Drop batter by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 C) for 15 minutes.

 

Makes 8 biscuits. For a cheesier biscuit increase cheese to 3/4 cup.

 

Drop Biscuits


4 eggs
1/4 cup butter, melted
1/4 cup honey (I’m going to use Walden Farms maple syrup as a substitute for honey)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup sifted coconut flour
1/4 teaspoon baking powder

 

Blend together eggs, butter, honey (syrup) and salt. Combine coconut flour with baking powder and whisk into batter until there are no lumps remaining. Drop batter by the spoonful onto greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F (205 C) for 15 minutes.

 

Makes 8 biscuits.

    Tried the cheese biscuit recipe. Oh my gosh, delicious! You were right about watching them. I pulled them out a bit early and it was still a bit brown on the bottom. But we didn’t mind!

    Thanks for posting the recipe.
