Rumford Southern Sweet Potato Biscuits Recipe – Old Cookbook Show
Today we look at a recipe from one of our old cookbooks for Southern biscuits made with sweet potato. In this time period potato biscuits were popular, and sweet potato biscuits especially so. The potatoes make a super light and soft biscuit, even if you have the ‘wrong’ flour.
3 cups flour
6 teaspoons Rumford Baking Powder **I misspoke in the video, it’s definitely 6 teaspoons
1 teaspoon sugar
1 teaspoon salt
4 tablespoons shortening
1 cup mashed cooked sweet potato
About 1 cup milk
Sift the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together, cut in the shortening, add the potatoes, then the milk gradually, and mix to a soft dough.
Turn onto a floured board and roll out one-half inch thick, cut into biscuits, place on a baking sheet and bake twelve to fifteen minutes in a hot oven.
**I misspoke in the video, it’s definitely 6 teaspoons of baking powder.
