This morning I discovered we didn't have any bread or bread like things for brekkies and because it was cool outside I wanted to make something in the oven. Searching through my recipes for something that didn't require yeast or hours of proofing I found Sarah Kramer's recipe for biscuits and decided to give them a try. After a quick mix and a short 8 minutes in the oven we had really warm, yummy, flakey Southern-styled biscuits for breakfast. Having never tried to make biscuits before I was unsure how they would turn out, but we were surprised with a tasty breakfast.

Whole Wheat flour for dusting
1.Preheat oven to 450˚. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder and salt.
2.Stir in the margarine, 'milk' and vinegar until well blended.
3.Cut dough into 6 even amounts and place into lightly oiled muffin tins, or roll dough out on a lightly floured surface and cut with large cookie cutters and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until a toothpick or knife comes out clean. Makes 6 large biscuits.
Note: The biscuits can be made savoury by adding any number of spices or herbs or sweet by adding honey, or sugar.
