Biscuit Recipe
0

14 posts in this topic

Before my daughter was diagnosed with celiac disease, one of my favorite things to make was assorted biscuits. In all my cooking adventures, research, and cookbook buying-frenzies, I have yet to find a GOOD gluten-free biscuit recipe. Everything - in comparison to my old recipes - tastes terrible. Does anyone out there have a really good, tried-and-true, gluten-free biscuit recipe that you could share? I would greatly appreciate it!

I use Pamela's mix to make biscuits a lot. I haven't had a "real" biscuit in ages, so I may have forgotten what they taste like, but I like this recipe a lot and make them quite often.

2 1/2 Cups Pamela's

3/4 Cup butter

2/3 Cup milk

It makes about 7-8 biscuits, depending on how large you make them. I also flatten them a bit before baking them. Bake on 400 for about 8-10 minutes.

I hope you like them! I've used Cause You're Special's mix for biscuits and found it to be pretty horrible. This is the only other recipe I've used. Good luck!

My family gobbled these up (adapted from an old family recipe):

1 cup rice flour

1/2 c. potato starch

1/4 c. tapioca flour

3/4 tsp. xanthan gum

1/2 tsp. salt

2 tsp. baking powder

1 tsp. baking soda

1/4 c. butter (1/2 stick)-- cold

2 Tablesp. shortening such as Crisco

3/4 c. (or slightly more) buttermilk

Sift the dry ingredients & mix them thoroughly. Cut in the butter & shortening. Mix in buttermilk as gently as possible. Dough should be moist & slightly sticky so add more if necessary, a little at a time.

Roll out about 3/4" thick between sheets of plastic wrap or waxed paper. Chill until solid enough to cut. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Cut with a floured cutter. Brush tops with cream if desired for a golden color. Bake 12-15 minutes for small cutter, longer if larger cutters used. The biscuits should be very light brown on bottoms, light golden on top (if wash is used). Don't overbake or they will be dry.

Hope they do the job for your gang!

I like the Cause You're Special Hearty Biscuit Mix. It's really good and my son loves them. I even make them up and cut them out, then freeze them on the pan. After they're frozen, I put them in ziplock bags and can take 1 or 2 out to bake. It worked really good. Who says we can't have convenience? :P

I, too, was a miserable failure at biscuits. No matter what recipe I used, they turned out like hockey pucks. Then I stumbled upon 123 Gluten Free Biscuits. I absolutely could not believe how wonderful these biscuits are. I bake something everyday for my gluten free husband so I'm no stranger to the kitchen; but there is no way I will ever go back to baking biscuits from scratch when I can use this wonderful mix. They turn out great very time.

If you can't find locally, they are well worth ordering online.

I posted this recipe a few weeks ago. It's from the Bob's Red Mill site. It uses coconut flour and rice flour, but the biscuits are out of this world- flakey, soft, creamy! PLUS they don't taste like coconut, so they would be good for any recipe. I found the flour at a local store, but you might have to order it direct. I would try finding it local first. Here it is again:

Coconut Country Biscuits

Ingredients:

3/4 c. White Rice Flour

1/4 c. Organic Coconut Flour

2 Tbsp. Potato Starch

1 tsp. Sugar

1 Tbsp. Baking Powder

1/4 tsp. Sea Salt

1/4 c. Butter

1/2 c. Buttermilk

Preheat oven to 450°F.

Combine dry ingredients. Cut butter into flour mixture until it resembles small peas. Stir in buttermilk to form soft dough. Place mixture on top of wax paper and press to 1" thickness. Cut with 2" biscuit cutter and place on greased baking sheet.

Bake for 10-12 minutes. Yields about 9 biscuits.

Wow! Sounds like I'll need to spend a couple of days in the kitchen to try everything out. One recipe that I made called for olive oil as the fat...truly terrible! The coconut ones sound good...I don't think I've seen coconut flour though in the store...but I've ordered quite a bit on-line.

Another question...what's the difference between regular salt and sea salt? I see sea salt (that's a mouthful!!) in quite a few recipes.

Bob's Red Mill just came out with a gluten-free coconut flour...I was given a sample of it to try by the rep. but I haven't tried it yet since I've had bad luck with cc before from Bob's Red Mill

the difference between sea salt and regular salt primarily is in the texture. sea salt is a little coarser and bigger... regular salt is usually iodized and ground finer.

Thank you so much for the biscuit recipe and others for the other ideas! When I get brave, I may try them out. Still just eating fish, meat, veggies and fruits- some rice milk and rice krispies. I'm not daring because I still have some symptoms and I seem sensitive to SO much!!! Oh well... it's much better than it was. Be well everyone!

What can you use instead of coconut flour?

We made these for dinner last night (with sausage gravy). My daughter microwaved the butter to a liquid, so they were more like drop biscuits and looked more like cookies than biscuits. :) We didn't have any coconut flour, so I used unsweetened coconut. The flavor was very coconut, but other than that, very, very yummy. I think, doing it again, I'd just have to use more rice flour and leave out the coconut.-- Oh, I also left out the starch, because I prefer less starch and more whole foods in my diet. And honey instead of sugar. I made a double batch and my family ate them all and were looking for more! This is definitely a keeper recipe (even though I can't help a little tweaking).

    • I too have heart palps, flutters, skips whatever you want to call them. Ecg shows nothing. I was told by my doctor it is due to my low iron which is due to celiac. They pretty much went away after being gluten-free. But occasionally do come back. I've actually been having them for the past 3 days. But I was glutened with really severe reaction about a week ago so not sure if its due to that. Or if iron is low right now. I am on supplements but it still goes up and down. I hear you about doctors. It seems if you don't do research yourself or ask questions they don't say or do or test for anything. 
    • For a number of years pre diagnosis I had irregular heartbeats - anything from a fluttering type thing to seemingly skipping one or more beats to rapid beats to something like a short drum riff. I had multiple ECG's which didn't find anything odd. It never did it when I was at the doctors or getting the ECG's. Sometimes it seemed to pound very hard & rapid, at these times I discovered if I just laid down flat on my back, it would restore normal rhythm almost instantly. These things happened at random whether I was at rest, sitting, standing, running or working hard. It was always short lived -- lasting only 1 to several seconds, perhaps the longest was close to a minute. I too have little faith in docs as I've had my share of being blown off, to misdiagnoses. The whole heart thing quit after I had been gluten-free for a while but if I get glutened, it returns.
    • My daughter had the HPV Vaccine last year. It was administered in three doses in April 2015, May 2015, and August 2015. Immediately after the third dose, she started having weird symptoms such has headaches, irritability, and a general feeling of being unwell (which she never had before). About three months later she started having gastro symptoms, most notably constant nausea. For several months we tried to figure out what was wrong and none of the doctors knew. After seeing many doctors and having a battery of tests, she was finally diagnosed with Celiac in August 2016. Her intestinal damage was a 3b Marsh score. No one else in our immediate or extended family has Celiac (myself and my other daughter were tested and are negative). No one else has symptoms or any indication that they could have Celiac. I feel like my daughter could have gone her whole life without being triggered and I'm feeling very guilty for making her get this controversial vaccine. I have done a lot of research and there seems to be conflicting studies regarding vaccines and autoimmune diseases. Some say there is no link, while others say there is a possible link, but it cannot be proven at this time. No one seems to know for sure what triggers Celiac...could it be vaccines? I'm wondering if anyone else feels that their Celiac Disease was triggered by a vaccine?  
    • Here is an article, albeit short, about Myocarditis and Celiac disease.  I have read before about a connection between the two and A-Fib is another one that can happen with undiagnosed Celiac. From one over-thinker to another......its the inflammation thing, along with maybe some genetic components to it.  I can't remember how long you have been gluten-free but it can take awhile for things to settle down, especially if your thyroid is wonky also.  I have Celiac and Hashi's so feel your pain, even though I have not had any cardiac involvement.  Some doctors really suck. I have a lifetime of bad with them so do not go that often, only when I have to and am leery about seeing any new ones. I am so done with that attitude of theirs. I think you need to find someone who has knowledge of Celiac and it's related conditions and who actually listens to the patient. That might be harder than finding a needle in a haystack but I wish you luck!
