Michael asks…

Does anyone know how to make homemade biscuits without baking powder or baking soda?

I want to make homemade biscuits but I do not have any baking powder. The baking soda I have, is what is in my fridge to help with smells. And yes, I know they are not interchangeable. I do not have a whole lot of groceries because I just moved into a newer house. Any suggestions would be GREATLY appreciated!
I do have yeast but its what I use in my bread machine.
I have all purpose flour.

sourdough answers:

baking powder
or baking soda those are the only things that make bubbles if you want something NOW
Maybe you have BISQUICK it has the leavening builit in it.

Sandy asks…

Poll – What’s the best biscuit to go with a good coffee?

What is the best biscuit to go with a good coffee and a bit of “me” time ?
I used to go with bourbons myself – but homemade biscotti looks good – and as for having a penguin explode in my mouth – well……

I’ll leave this to the vote rather than make it my decision.

Thanks for the good answers.

Laura asks…

Question for British people about how certian words mean something else in our different versions of English?

Okay, we say French Fries, you say chips. We say chips, you say crisps.

We say cookie, you say biscuit…well, we call baked lumps of dough biscuits…what do you call baked lumps of dough? Because biscuits are plain, so they aren’t muffins or scones. Scones are something VERY different.

Thanks for your answer!

sourdough answers:

I’m American but I’ve lived in England for 4 years. They don’t have biscuits because haven’t you heard the phrase “british food sucks” They have scones. But scones are hard. I guess you could put butter in it. I’d just learn how to make homemade biscuits. Or you could eat this bread they have. I don’t know what it’s called but it’s sort of like toasted sourdough. That’s the closest they get to biscuits
