Anyone out there? lol baking question

Ok so I want to make some cream biscuits for tonight, the recipe uses All purpose flour and baking powder. I do have whole wheat flour but I didn't like the consistency I got when I used it to make the pie dough so I would rather not use it.

I also have some self rising flour...if I was to use that instead and omit the baking powder(recipe calls for 2 cups flour and 1 tablespoon of baking powder) or just some of it do you think it would work? If it flops I could make it with the whole wheat and have enough time to do so, but would rather the self rising.

What do you think?

  • Whole wheat flour is how about one cup of Whole wheat and one of Self rising? Keep the baking soda to help the whole wheat.

    Most whole wheat breads in the supermarket...use half whole wheat and half regular over processed white flour to improve lightness of texture and still get away with passing itself off as whole wheat.

  • I vote make something else if you don't have the right ingredients!
