After seeing Baby Kato's photo had to give these a try. I was surprised to see it called for cake flour, never tried that with biscuits before but it made for a very light, fluffy texture. I did double the baking soda & as another suggested, mixed the Tabasco with melted butter to brush the tops & added a small amount of the cheese to the top prior to baking. These didn't rise much when baking, but the flavor and texture was great, served to DH with a topping of sausage gravy & an omelet with hot coffee & he declared it a winner. Just enough different version of biscuits to be exciting.Reply
