What is the difference between self-rising flour and all-purpose flour?

Self-rising flour is a combination of all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

What if I don’t have self-rising flour?

You can make your own self-rising flour by combining 1 cup of all-purpose flour plus 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/4 teaspoon fine salt.

How To Make Low-Calorie Biscuits

4 – Slowly add small amounts of the remaining milk until the dough forms. You may not need the entire amount of milk.

5 – Knead the biscuit dough until smooth, it will be a little sticky. Don’t overwork the dough.

6 – Place the dough on a floured surface, using a floured rolling pin, roll dough out to about 1″ thick. Using a biscuit cutter, cut out the biscuits. Repeat the process until all the dough is used. If you don’t have a biscuit cutter the top of a drinking glass will work as well!

7 – Place the cut out biscuit dough on a baking sheet, about an inch apart from each other. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until golden brown.

Note – I make these biscuits larger, with a 3-inch diameter. Feel free to cut the biscuits smaller at a 2-2.5-inch diameter to get more biscuits from the dough.

When I click on a biscuit recipe, I never know if I am going to get British style biscuits (cookies) or Scottish style scones. Scones this time and they look fab. Nice rise!
