Good Morning! I'm a Mom of 2, ages 3.5 and 18 months. In our household we have an anaphylactic dairy allergy and a corn allergy. I am the one with the anaphylaxis and I've lived WELL with this allergy all my life. I'd just like to say that Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday and if there is extended family and friends who will cooperate with your food allergies, you can have a safe and delicious Thanksgiving. It's about trust... and about education... and possibly about providing recipes and...

Cocoanut milk does not happen in our local grocery stores...and I live 130 miles from a big town where this product is available. Will the top recipe work with regular milk and be flaky? I am so anxious for a biscuit that is not like a hockey puck in texture, and probably flavor. Have never tried to eat a hockey puck, but they don't sound yummy!!! Thanks.

They should work w/ cow's milk (I'm assuming that's what you mean by regular milk) or most other milk alternatives. I've used unsweetened unflavored soy milk as well. The "flaky" part mainly comes in w/ not overworking things. Don't be too aggressive on cutting in the fat. It's OK to have some pieces you can actually see. And then handle it gently so you don't heat things up w/ your hands. GL - I hope they come out well for you! I've baked many a hockey puck in my day....but have always been...

Thank you. Yes, I was referring to milk out of a jug..cows milk!!! I have a problem with soy, also. Don't do eggs..anything connected with a bird, wheat and soy and a couple of other items...like watermelon!! Again, thanks. Will try these tomorrow.

Yes, you can use all all-purpose flour. Just use 2 cups of flour.

I noticed your comment about using a scale. I have read other bakers who prefer weighing their flours on a scale too. Are the measurements in parentheses the numbers that you use for measuring with a scale? What at kind of scale do you have?
Comment

Re: Flaky Biscuits Recipe: Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free

Kathy P ·
Yes I always use a scale these days. I have a Cuisinart scale I got at Bed, Bath & Beyond with a coupon. Just be sure that it has 1g granularity. I put my mixing bowl on the scale and tare it which zeros out the weight. I weigh out the first flour then tare again to measure the next. I mix up my flour mixes by weight as well and write the per cup weight on the container. The numbers I'm parentheses are the individual weights in grams.

Re: Flaky Biscuits Recipe: Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free

Kathy P ·
They freeze very well. I actually freeze them as breakfast sandwiches that include a cooked sausage patty and optionally a cooked egg patty and cheese. We wrap those in paper sandwich wraps and microwave to reheat. As plain biscuits, you can reheat in microwave for ~30 sec or in a toaster oven.

Depending on how big you make them, a batch doesn't make that many! You'll definitely need a double batch, and no one to eat any, to be able to freeze 20!

Oh no! I hope they aren't too bad. What I would do in that case is clabber my milk sub. Add the vinegar to the milk to make buttermilk. Maybe there is enough acid - fingers crossed!

They were already baking. Just tossed them and started over. Adding pic of this batch. Now troubleshoot me please. I didn't have sweet rice flour so I used sweet sorghum in place. Odd texture but tastes amazing. Should I sub a diff flour? I have 15 to choose from lol!

To sub b. Powder I am putting the soda in dry ingredients, vinegar in wet ingredients then mixing together. Is this wrong?
Comment

Re: Flaky Biscuits Recipe: Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free

Kathy P ·
Sweet rice flour is not easy to sub. Are they kind of gritty?? I think that's what sorghum would do. Sweet rice flour absorbs differently than other flours. It's sort of b/w a starch and flour since it's so sticky. Not really sure how to swap that out. It's generally available - look in the Asian section of the grocery store.

Help, I'm stumped! I was going to make the biscuits, so first I made the brown rice flour mix. It didn't come out anywhere near the same weight as yours. All my ingredients seemed to weight more than the weights specified on the recipe. I measure by weight very carefully and checked my scale make sure it was weighing correctly. I don't know where to go from here. Any help would be very appreciated.
Comment

Re: Flaky Biscuits Recipe: Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free

Kathy P ·
I'm not sure I'm following...what is not weighing the same? You mean when you weight a cup of the mix, it's not 116g? I don't even use volume measurements - so when I "convert" a recipe, I use the grams per cup to convert it to weight. If something calls for 1 1/2 cups, I weight out 116*1.5g or 164g.
Comment

Re: Flaky Biscuits Recipe: Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free

Mar McG ·
I obviously don't understand the volume/weight instructions. I still a novice at baking. When I made the recipe for the Brown Rice Flour mix (using weigh measures) I thought the "Brown Rice Flour Mix(116g/1 cup)" in the recipe meant that 1 cup of the flour mix should weigh 116 grams. I'm confused that 1 cup of the flour mix doesn't weigh 116g and 1 ½ cups doesn't weigh 164g, but it sounds like I should just make the biscuits by using the weigh of the ingredients and not look at the volume at...
Comment

Re: Flaky Biscuits Recipe: Dairy-Free, Egg-Free, Wheat/Gluten-Free

Kathy P ·
Depending on how compacted or fluffed up your flour/mix is, you will get different amounts for the same volume. So, if you fluff up your flour and measure a cup, it may be very "light". Likewise, if you scoop up a cup, it may compact and be "heavy". I was always getting very inconsistent baking results with gluten free flour until I started measuring by weight. I just put a bowl on the scale and start measuring. Not cups involved.

I made the biscuits today using weight measures(ignoring the cups). I didn't have much milk so I substituted soy milk and coconut creamer. They turned out wonderful! I can make a decent drop biscuit, but haven't had a real, true flaky biscuit is several years. They were sooo good I'll admit to gobbling up three before they were even cool. I have leftover ham from Easter so I'm going to make some ham and cheese biscuit sandwiches. Yum! Thank you so much for your help!

Yum! Can this be used to make other "cream of" soups too?? I know I can't find cream of celery soup that is called for in some old family recipes I have.

Re: Milk-Free, Soy-Free, Gluten-Free Cream of Mushroom Soup Recipe

Melanie Carver ·
Hi Kathy, Yes, I would assume this would do nicely with celery instead of mushroom. I've not made it myself (I'm just now convincing myself that it's okay to eat celery twice a year ). I would suggest replacing the 1 cup of mushrooms with about 3/4 cup diced celery. For the cream of mushroom soup, it is delicious on pasta -- I mix it with broccoli and served on gluten-free pasta. Also--good for casserole; but if you're storing it before use, it will really thicken/condense (garbanzo flour is...
