Friends, I had fun with this post! All day I was thinking about getting home from work and finally making some bread for my Homemade Bread Pledge. In fact, this is my first bread of 2008!
I got home later than expected and decided it would have to be something new and very quick. I looked through my bread recipe binder and saw this Baking-Powder Biscuit recipe. I saved the original recipe from the magazine years ago, but never tried it. I thought it was from Saveur Magazine and a quick Google search confirmed it.
The only changes* to the recipe that I made were using sea salt and reducing the amount to about 3/4 of a teaspoon. And of course I used vanilla rice milk in place of regular milk.
These biscuits were a snap to make and so tasty good that I didn't even put anything on them. No jam or butter needed here folks. Plain is perfect in this case. The biscuits didn't rise quite as much as I expected, but they smelled heavenly and were so tender with a bit of crispness on the outside.
Why is this post Part 1? Because I saw that I had another biscuit recipe from one of my favorite food bloggers. I'm going to try her recipe and see how it stacks up. Thus the bonanza! I was on the phone with a friend getting all excited about the biscuits and the title of the post. He said, "Wow, you really do like to bake don't you?!" I couldn't deny it and have any sense of credibility whatsoever. I said, "Yeah. I really do."
*Updated* - Nupur's comment reminded me that I did actually make one more change to the recipe. I used butter instead of vegetable shortening. This is what happens when I link to the recipe and don't type it in myself and I'm sleepy! ; )
