It is easy to make homemade biscuits.  This is from the archives of my grandmother, Ethel Eynard.  Jefferson City, MO.  1966.

    For those with the biscuits not rising, the recipe is supposed to say “SELF Rising” Flour with the baking powder already in it. Thats why baking powder is not listed as an ingredient. If you use regular flour, you will need 2 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and 1/2 a teaspoon of baking soda. If anyone used buttermilk instead of milk, I bet you got quite a surprise with no neutralizing agent!

      Baking powder is listed at the 4th ingredient. So I am not sure where you would see that it wasn’t listed.

    My response is the same as Ann’s. They tasted great but did not rise at all, and I followed directions exactly.

    The flavor of these were great… but they were FLAT FLAT FLAT… I’m sure I did something wrong on my end… but not sure what.

    These turned out great just like my grams biscuits, I did use buttermilk tho (no baking soda)
    thanx for sharing your grams recipe. I didn’t know mines she would mix it right in the flour bin 🙂
    These even looked pretty!

    I’m crazy for these biscuits. Thank you for sharing your Grandmother’s wonderful biscuit recipe. I’ve always been able to make bread like nobody’s business, but my home made biscuits could have been used for hockey pucks. Bisquick to the rescue. This is the FIRST time that a scratch recipe has worked for me. These were flaky, picture perfect and delicious. Thank you…thank you and thank you.

    I just made these tonite, they looked beautiful but I could taste the salty baking soda flavor in them, I’m going to try, perhaps using less Baking soda next time, but they were flaky and picture perfect.

    I am guessing you meant baking powder ~Stephanie

      you only use baking soda if you are using buttermilk. Otherwise it is baking powder just as the recipe for the biscuits states.
