Gluten-Free Sweet Potato Biscuits
For the Biscuits:
- ¾ cup unsweetened coconut milk (or other milk – dairy- or dairy-free – of your choice)
- ½ Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
- 2 cups Gigi’s Everyday Gluten Free Flour Blend (Gum-free)
- 3 teaspoons baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon baking soda
- Scant ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/8 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
- ¼ cup brown sugar, firmly packed
- 5 Tablespoons dairy-free butter substitute (or an equal amount of butter if you prefer)
- 1 egg (or prepared powdered egg replacer to equal 1 egg for egg-free)
- 1 cup cooked, peeled and mashed sweet potato, preferably fresh roasted
For the Topping:
- 3 Tablespoons dairy-free butter substitute, melted (or an equal amount of butter if you prefer)
- 2 Tablespoons brown sugar
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Small amount of coarse sea salt
- Preheat oven to 450F.
- Line a baking pan with parchment or grease lightly.
- Combine milk and vinegar; set aside.
- Stir together melted Earth Balance, brown sugar and cinnamon for topping; set aside. Reserve sea salt.
- In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, pepper and brown sugar; whisk until blended.
- Cut in butter with a fork until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
- In a separate mixing bowl, combine egg, milk/vinegar mixture and sweet potato, stirring until mixed well. Add this mixture to the dry ingredients, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
- Place ¼ cup scoops of dough 2-3 inches apart on prepared pan and lightly flatten into biscuit shape. Do not over-shape dough or press too hard – it is delicate and you don’t want the biscuits too flat.
- With a pastry brush, gently brush on topping mixture, dividing evenly among biscuits until all topping mixture is used.
- Lightly sprinkle the top of each biscuit with coarse sea salt – a small pinch is all you need here.
- Bake biscuits for 12-15 minutes, or until edges brown and tops are bubbly.
