“[Breadbaking is] one of those almost hypnotic businesses, like a dance from some ancient ceremony. It leaves you filled with one of the world’s sweetest smells…there is no chiropractic treatment, no Yoga exercise, no hour of meditation in a music-throbbing chapel. that will leave you emptier of bad thoughts than this homely ceremony of making bread.”
M. F. K. Fisher, ‘The Art of Eating’

(I believe my mom always uses all-purpose. Is there a difference in preference between Northern and Southern cooks?)


I made the biscuits using only three ingredients. Yes – only three (unless you count the stuff that is already in the self-rising flour – but I am not). For more information, go to King Arthur’s website (here) and you can read about SR Flour.
