Bread Machine Southern Biscuits

Only 1 in every 5 of my attempts to bake from scratch comes out successful. That’s up from 1 out of 6 a few years ago, but still not anything to brag about. So, the more I can use my bread machine, the better. And it’s even better when what I make comes out fantastic, like these southern biscuits. They have a great buttery flavor, light texture and smell absolutely divine. Now, they aren’t super light and flaky like dough you’d make by hand (if you weren’t me that is) but they are a great substitute for those biscuits you get in a tube, that’s for sure!

    • Keeping in mind that I am not a baker, and my baking success rate is generally pretty low… but, I think you can sub bread flour. My understanding is that you can usually use it in place of all purpose flour but because of the increased amount of protein in bread flour, you might have to add a bit more liquid. So I would see if it’s too dry as it’s mixing and if so, perhaps add a splash more of milk.

      Hope that helps. Let me know your results. It’s a good question.
