  • Anyone use Original Bakewell Cream for biscuits?
    I bought my first can of Original Bakewell Cream years ago and this is the recipe from the can. I haven't used another biscuit recipe since.


    4 cups flour
    4 tsp Bakewell Cream
    2 tsp baking soda
    1 tsp. salt
    1/2 cup shortening
    1 1/2 cup cold milk

    Mix and sift dry ingredients. Add shortening and mix with pastry blender. Add milk all at once and stir quickly with a fork. (some flours may require a little more liquid to make a nice soft dough).

    Turn out on floured board and knead 5 - 6 times. Roll or pat to 1/2 - 3/4 inch thickness. Cut with biscuit cutter.

    Bake at 475º for 5 minutes. Turn off heat and leave in oven for 5 - 10 minutes until golden brown. These biscuits are extra high and light.

    I've never used it, but I've heard others say that the biscuits are great. I may have to purchase a can myself.

    Yes where do you get this. I have never seen it.

    Bakewell Cream can be purchased from the King Arthur Flour Co. at www.bakerscatalogue.com. It's not actually a baking powder since it doesn't contain baking soda like most baking powders do. I've never used the Bakewell Cream, but have used the Bakewell Cream baking powder and I do like that.

    If you substitute BAKEWELL CREAM for baking powder in a recipe, you need to use two parts BAKEWELL CREAM and one part baking soda (I just make up a separate container for this mixture using the BAKEWELL CREAM so it's ready to go). It doesn't substitute straight across for baking powder.

    On the can it says: To substitute for Baking Powder, use two parts Bakewell Cream and one part baking soda.
    Bakewell Cream is the powder, not cream. Someone told me it was cream of tartar with added ingredients. I found the cans at Tuesday Morning store and stocked up because I had to order it too. I keep the extra cans in the freezer.

    The ingredients in Bakewell Cream are acid sodium pyrophospate and redried starch - can be used as a substitute for cream of tartar, but isn't cream of tartar. When you use 2 parts Bakewell Cream to 1 part baking soda, it can be used in place of baking powder.

    You're right Cookiebakr, it can be sub for baking powder but not for cream of tartar, but I did use it instead of cream of tartar in a snickerdoodle cookie recipe and the cookies turn out great. The unbaked dough tasted awful though.

    This is the only recipe I made for biscuits. They are awesome! We love them. They are so high and light and fluffy. Very tasty.

    Bakewell Cream is great. Maybe I shouldn't say this, very easy to get here. Seems that it is made about 20 min. from here, in good ole Maine.
