Biscuits
« on: August 15, 2014, 03:39:53 PM »
Hey all. The other day I made some biscuits using the Bob's Red Mill mix. I was not impressed! They were very dry and crumbly. Do you all have any other favorite biscuit mixes or recipes that are free of gluten-containing grains and buckwheat? I was really disappointed because Bob's always has good products. :( Thanks.

I like Bob's All Purpose Baking Mix (not the biscuit variety), Pamela's Baking and Pancake Mix (contains almonds and milk, no buckwheat) and King Arthur's baking mix - all with good results. 

I just checked Pamela's and Bob's - no buckwheat.  MIL makes the best biscuits using Pamela's.  I have only ever successfully made biscuits by popping open a can and causing my own personal heart failure  :evil:  I do other baking with those brands though.

This is my personal recommendation (and I cannot remember if you have been longterm GF or if this is recent), the further down the list that brown/white rice is in the ingredient list, the more likely it will taste "gluteny" and less gritty.  I struggle as someone who eats gluten on a regular basis to stomach some of the experiments - these are much better options.

I make drop biscuits and cheese biscuits with the Pamela's.  The almond-based baking/pancake mix, not the all-purpose one.

For flaky biscuits, 1-2-3 GF has a good mix.
