High five Biscuits and raspberries spread


High five Biscuits and raspberries spread  

This classic southern breakfast always been favorite at my household .
Biscuits need much care while making them the amount of good baking powder also play a key role in making them rise .and always remember to used fresh baking powder and soda for the experiment I try I tsp baking powder in 1 tbsp vinegar  if its bubbly then its mean the baking soda will work.
The other most important ingredient is butter oh yes butter .I by my self  try to keep away from saturated fats such as butter, ghee etc. but in this recipe I have to use it but in moderation. and I don’t eat often so I can eat them once in very while right….

Also remember the store brought jam will not work in this recipe its something about that homemade jam and for this you have to try my raspberries  spread  too
