Rumford's Baking Powder Biscuits

READY IN: 22mins
Recipe by COOKGIRl

An oldie but a goodie! Printed on the back of a can of Rumford Aluminum-Free Baking Powder. I am quite surprised that this recipe hadn't been added to the site database until now. Egg-free. Mmmm, so good with a spread of butter and slather of creamed honey (and a wee bit of real maple syrup stirred into the butter, too)!

A quite tasty biscuit. Nice and easy to make, and the flavor is a perfect platform for gravies and the like. Thanks CG! Made for Veggie Swap 43 :)
