Items like biscuits & scones may not necessarily need the entire liquid amount the recipe calls for. Or, you may find that the dough needs extra moisture. Add the liquid in batches & have extra on hand in case you need more. You can also add extra baking powder, up to 1 tsp per batch.

Hard lumps of dough. They never rise, just turn brown. If I try again I will double the milk.

I substituted buttermilk for the water/milk. They turned out decent, but were too dense & had a "doughy" flavor. I am curious of this was due to the thickness of the buttermilk, & if milk would produce a lighter biscuit with this recipe. Any suggestions would be much appreciated!

The "bean' taste of this flour mix is too overwhelming.
Bob's Red Mill March 21, 2014

Bean flours do tend to have a distinct flavor. I have emailed you regarding this issue.

I was really excited to try this, but like a lot of gluten free mixes, these biscuits just tasted like raw dough. But hot. I tried dipping them in smart balance butter and putting some lactose free parmesan on them too but it just didn't turn out very good. Not sure what went wrong!

If your biscuits were doughy and dense, you may need to add an additional 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of baking powder to the the dry mix. This will give rise to your biscuits, reducing the doughy, dense texture.

I used butter instead of shortening and the biscuits turned out great, I also used a bit more milk than the recipe called for. My family is use to regular southern style homemade biscuits, but when the cook was diagnosed wheat and gluten intolerant, recipes have had to be changed.

I just purchased this, as I am trying reduce the gluten in my diet. I was wondering if I could make the dough in a bread machine, and if so how would I go about that?
Bob's Red Mill April 14, 2014
I do not recommend preparing our Gluten Free Biscuit & Baking Mix in a bread machine. This is due to the nature of the recipe. This recipe calls for you to "cut" in the shortening until the mixture resembles a course meal. A bread machine does not have this capability.

How would you suggest incorporating sweet potatoes into this to make sweet potato biscuits? Thank you!
Bob's Red Mill September 29, 2014
When wanting to add sweet potatoes to this mix, first puree your sweet potatoes. Gently fold in no more than 1 cup of puree to the dough after adding the shortening. Reduce the amount of liquid called for in the recipe as necessary. Keep in mind that this method has not been tested.

To give more rise to these biscuits, we recommend adding an additional 1/4 to 1/2 tsp of baking powder to the dry mix.
Sara January 7, 2015
I made these with 1 extra tsp of baking powder, butter, and whole milk. The flavor was fine, but they were pretty flat: maybe I rolled them too thin?
Bob's Red Mill January 13, 2015
Sara, I have emailed you regarding your experience.

They did not rise. They were brown hockey pucks. Dry, not fluffy.
Grace March 19, 2015
Is there any other recipes or things you can make with this mix besides biscuits? Thanks
Anna March 20, 2015
Do you think I could use grapeseed or olive oil instead of shortening for the biscuits?
Bob's Red Mill March 23, 2015
When preparing our biscuits with our Gluten Free Biscuit and Baking Mix, it’s important to use a solid fat as this will help create layers in the baked product.
Bob's Red Mill March 24, 2015
Esta, I have emailed you regarding the trouble you had with this mix.
