These biscuits have a warm jam topping that melts down the side of the biscuit when cooked. The lava flow of jam is the hallmark of my volcano biscuits. And let’s be real, it’s fun to wake up and ask “Do you want volcanos?”
2 cups flour
2 Tbl sugar
½ tsp salt
1 Tbl baking powder
1 Tbl ground flax seed (I just grind it up in a coffee grinder) – you can also sub 1 T dry egg replacer
1/3 cup light veggie oil
1/3 cup rice or soy (or whatever fake) milk
½ cup water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar (white vinegar also works)
6 Tbl of your fave jam
1 additional Tbl of sugar for dusting
Heat oven to 385 degrees.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine all the dry ingredients. In a small bowl, combine all of the wet ingredients. Make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients and pour in the wet, then fold wet and dry together.
Make 6 balls out of the dough and put them on the baking sheet. Press down on the dough balls, making them into a sort of nest shape – this usually involves flattening the dough out a bit, and then pushing down a little extra in the middle of each one. Top each with 1 T of jam. Dust dough with remaining Tbl of sugar. Bake for ~18-20 minutes.
