Why didn't someone tell me to go and make biscuits? I mean, I waited 21,5 years to try some, that's waaay to long. I never quite understood what defined a biscuit, I read about them in cookbooks such as Vegan Brunch and also on peoples blogs. Biscuits and gravy everywhere, and I still didn't bother to make them. Why? I'm not sure, I always had something else instead I guess. My basic scone-recipe has the same ingredients as a basic biscuit recipe I found, only in different proportions. I figured I might as well have scones instead and since I've never had gravy for breakfast, I've never really had a need for biscuits.
Some days ago, we found ourselves with nothing for breakfast other than a can of baked beans, and wanted something to go along with them. The idea to make biscuits struck me and I got going. I used Savvy Abby's recipe without any add-ins and OH MY! They were quick, easy and came out fluffy and tender with a firmer crust. They were good with the beans and even better with strawberry-orange jam. I can't wait to have biscuits and gravy now! What are you're favourite biscuit recipe? Any suggestion on a gravy to have along with them?
