|biscuits, the other "b" word...

Since Kiyan can't have milk, biscuits are largely off the menu. I've started playing around with biscuit recipes using soymilk, and tonight's is a moderate success. I started with AB's Southern Biscuit Recipe, did the substitutions, and recorded the findings so I can do it differently next time. |
5 oz all purpose flour
5 oz cake flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 oz vegan margarine
8 oz soy milk (vanilla, because that's what I had)
450 degrees for 15-20 minutes (17 minutes worked fine)
The results? Not too bad, a touch on the dry side. Next time I'll cut the soymilk and add some more fats, possibly in the form of shortening. But for a Kiyan friendly biscuit, definitely a step forward.
