I have a question about the recipe "Shirley Corriher's Touch-of-Grace Biscuits" from Genius Recipes. Could the batter be made ahead several hours. Thanks, nt
Are you channeling your best self with this comment? (If you're not sure, check out our Code of Conduct.)
You could, but you wouldn't get as high a rise. Once baking powder (the leavening in self-rising flour) meets liquid, it immediately starts creating carbon dioxide (which leavens the biscuits); the longer the dough sits the less leavening power it has. A better solution would be to prepare the dough up to the point of adding the liquid, refrigerate that, then add the liquid right before baking. It'll only add a couple minutes to your last-minute prep.
Terrific! Thanks, nt
