Vegan Biscuits from a Baking Novice
At the start of last week, I shared my recipe for vegan gravy and not so vegan biscuits. A few days later, I was craving this comforting breakfast again and decided to do it right this time... I would have to find a vegan biscuit recipe.
It should be noted that I never bake [unless you want to call adding two ingredients to a boxed mix 'baking.'] I have never in my life made anything from scratch except for Tollhouse chocolate chip cookies. Kneading dough is something I use to reference my cat's cuddling habits, not my actions in the kitchen...that was, until last weekend.
Determined to find a vegan biscuit recipe that could compete with the flaky layers of my Pillsbury canister, I compared several recipe reviews before settling on this one originally taken from AllRecipes.com. Due to my own supply limitations, I ended up using whole wheat flour and substituting honey for the sugar [I rarely keep refined sugar in my apartment]. This resulted in heartier, slightly less fluffy biscuits than intended, but still quite good.
Next time, I'll try using all-purpose flour...just to see how it goes.
