Gluten Free Biscuit

I used the recipe in the link from Simply Gluten-free, which is a great website even if you can take gluten; some of these alternative recipes are truly magically delicious. I’m always looking for good gluten free biscuit recipes because, frankly, when you pre-soak your grains to make them easier to digest (wheat, in particular), it changes the texture and for biscuits that means they just aren’t biscuits anymore, in my opinion. Does this recipe make a flaky, melt in your mouth southern style biscuit? Well, no, but it sure makes a mighty fine tasting imitation!

First of all, the recipe is simple to make and I made it even simpler because I didn’t have time to roll dough and cut out biscuits…and by that I mean, of course, that I didn’t want to take the time to scrape and clean off the counter in order to have a place to roll dough. Don’t judge me. 

Anyhoo, once I ground the tapioca to make tapioca flour in my Blendtec 52-601-BHM Kitchen Mill 60-Ounce Electric Grain MillBlendTec before we do the wheat flour (I’m not completely intolerant of wheat so I don’t worry about contamination.)  I really do recommend getting a happy momma says:

I know what you are saying about the texture of soaked grains. I have gotten used to the flavor and textures of the whole grains we use. White flour items taste like glue to me nowdays. It has not always been easy and there have been flops.

At our house we make buffins. They are a cross between a muffin and a biscut and they are yummy and easy to do. I agree that at times rolling and cutting biscuts is a pain and when you are in a hurry even more so. This is why we love this recipe.

  1. Thanks so much for sharing! And, hey, if Shakespeare made up words, so can you – buffins has a definite ring to it!

    1. Thank you for the praise and the invite! I’ll have to decline as we don’t do website work on the Sabbath but I love your site and liked it on FB – look forward to learning a lot from it!

  • I found the same biscuit recipe during strawberry season this year. I loved it. It’s nice to see that someone else had a good experience with it too.
