well, butter mah biscuits!

i crunked it up this weekend and tested bianca's biscuits and soysage gravy for her southern vegan cookbook. both were pretty divine. you'd think that it would be easy to make gravy, hence the catchphrase "it's gravy" but if you don't know what you're doing, gravy can turn out disastrous. this did not.
i can't release the ingredients BUT i can tell you i use WW flour because white flour is the devil bobby bouchay. couldn't resist a reference from the waterboy.

i will say it again: white flour is the devil.

AMEN! i actually have a fear of white flour, no joke. there should seriously be a phobia named after it lol. your biscuits came out better shaped than mine! maybe because you made yours bigger and i did the small ones? mine kinda poofed up :(

Man, I can't wait until I get my hands on those recipes - they both look absolutely scrumptious! And just to play the devil's advocate, I tried Googling "in defense of white flour" and other similar terms, but found nothing :)

I can't wait for that recipe. My biscuits always turn out like hockey pucks.

Oh wow. I love biscuits and gravy. REALLY love. After several years of making gravy I can handle it no problem, but you are very correct: it can go horribly wrong. The slightest miscalculation and you can end up with a tasteless, lumpy mess. Luckily, this gravy looks just perfect!

Glad they worked well with regular whole wheat flour too! They look pretty fluffy!

And on the dumplins, I believe the recipe needs about 2 extra cups water, according to a bit of feedback I've gotten. I think the dumplins would have more room to cook fully with more liquid...
