  • Trude McCubbin says:

    These biscuits are wonderful and when you make them don’t beat the baking powder too much or you’ll have “Hockey Pucks”. Mine rose beautifully

  • Tara Fujita says:

    These biscuits turned out beautifully!! The best tasting biscuit I’ve ever made. My only problem was that they didn’t rise very much. They were tender and flavorful, so we didn’t mind them a little flat.

  • Monique says:

    This is a horrible recipe! Indeed they came out like hockey pucks!

    I realize I sound a little bitter in saying this, but I’ve finally come to a point in my life where I can make good biscuits. My husband, who was raised on processed junk foods prefers those nasty refrigerated biscuits. He calls my biscuits brickets. Brat. It’s hurtful. And my biscuits really are good! But to make him happy, I wondered what cake flour would do to biscuits. So I looked it up and found this recipe. I’m hoping for good things from this recipe. Thank you! …brickets, geez.
