Hi. It’s Lois at Recipe Idea Shop, telling you about Gluten Free Sweet Potato Biscuits. (Wheat) Sweet Potato Biscuits have long been a favorite at Shiloh Quaker Camp. The kids just LOVE them. But when the camp cooks make regular Sweet Potato Biscuits, they don’t make a comparable option for those of us who have to be gluten free! So I figured out how to make them. And they are GOOD.
Changing to Gluten Free
It’s harder to get the right texture with gluten free baking. But with the help of Bob’s Red Mill 1-to-1 Baking Flour (and their biscuit recipe), I figured it out. I had tried the camp’s recipe, simply substituting gluten free flour. No luck. Next, I tried using yeast instead of baking powder. Again, a FAIL.
Then my husband noticed that Bob’s Red Mill has a buttermilk biscuit recipe on the package. I tried it, with a variety of substitutions. Yay! Tasty Gluten Free Sweet Potato Biscuits. Next, I will try to freeze them and see how that works. I’ll let you know.
