What’s the Problem With These Biscuits?

Happy New Year’s Eve everyone! Maybe you can help me solve a mystery today. What’s the problem with these biscuits I made last night??

I was craving some bread after my hubby made this fabulous dinner of beef stroganoff and they were eating what I could not…cheesy garlic bread.

So, I scoured Pinterest for a low carb version and came up with these delicious sounding Cheddar Biscuits like Red Lobster makes-using almond flour of course!

I followed the given recipe, yet frowned when it called for 1 Tablespoon of baking powder. Maybe I should have trusted my instincts, they turned out beautiful-but bitter!

I was so disappointed!! You don’t know how badly I wanted that bread and how so looking forward to something delicious I had been. I almost cried. Now I have to pitch the whole lot.

That’s a waste of expensive ingredients, I know us cooks have failed experiments and that’s just part of the process but…ouch! Whether you grind your own or buy a bag, almond flour is pricey!

Now, I guess it’s possible that the almond flour was bad, yet it had been in the refrigerator, not even opened yet. It was an off brand that I got from Aldi, but fresh.

Normally I buy the brand in the link above, yet this time I replaced what I’d used once before with the same thing. I don’t think it was the culprit though.

I’ve included pictures of the recipe and my final product. You tell me…what went wrong?? They were so pretty too. 🙁

Found this on Pinterest

All the ingredients I used were new and fresh except the baking powder. Not sure if it’s old, or if the quantity was just too much, just want to understand why they were bitter!

I know I have been away for a while, I’m considering scrapping my whole site since I have not had the time lately to post. The internet is saturated with keto blogs now anyway.

I’m about to be unemployed again (even though I was only working part-time, I still need the money), so I need to get serious about my goals and really try to earn a living through my writing.

Should I keep it? Change it again? Write about something entirely new? I’m open to suggestions here, I know, I do this every year don’t I? What can I say, New Year, new aspirations.

I got a new journal for Christmas, a prayer journal, and my hubby is remodeling the office and buying me a new desk for my Christmas present!

I had him paint it cream and lavender-it’s going to be lovely when he is done and hopefully, inspiring!!

Well, I hope you can help me solve the mystery! I also want to wish you all a Happy New Year whatever your plans, stay alive, don’t drink and drive PLEASE!!!

Love you all, goodbye 2019 and good riddance! JK, I guess it wasn’t ALL bad.

  1. Too much baking powder unless that was a double recipe. Have you tried looking up similar versions of the recipe to find differences? That’s what I do when I don’t feel good about a recipe I find that I’d like to try. That happens sometimes with GF recipes I try. I love Bob’s 1 to 1 flour mix but it is expensive to waste also. I wouldn’t give up your site. You could always take a break for new inspiration. Post samplings of your serious writing. I blog about many things, mostly photography and poetry but also have excerpts from my book in progress, food and fun adventures. Keep it open themed for awhile. Good luck with everything!

  2. While I can’t offer anything on the biscuit front as I have zero idea (anything I make comes out bad regardless, I think I’m just cursed in the kitchen) I would say noooooo to scrapping your site. Do you still enjoy blogging? If so, stick at it because I think you do a great job with it and it’s a pleasure to know you here in the blogging world. I’m making an attempt at self-employed since losing my job and being ill and it’s going ridiculously badly so far (meaning not enough to cover groceries even but it’s better than nothing). You’re talented with writing and you have oodles of ideas, so I think you can make something work.
    Wishing you all the best for a bright New Year!
