Garlic Cheddar Biscuits

The science behind bread is very interesting. In order to make bread rise you need bubbles. To create these bubbles and make a soft light bread, there are two options.

First, you can use yeast which ferments the natural sugars in flour into alcohol and carbon dioxide. This will also create a unique flavor which in the case of biscuits is undesirable.

The second option, which we will use in this recipe, is a leavening agent called baking powder. Baking powder is a combination of acid (sodium aluminum sulfate and mono calcium phosphate) and a base or alkaline chemical (sodium bicarbonate AKA-baking soda). When the acid and base react with the liquid in the biscuit mix, they create carbon dioxide bubbles which will make the dough rise.

I have been working on perfecting the biscuit recipe for years. I have finally figured it out. It is not a technically difficult recipe and only requires basic ingredients. You will not be disappointed!
