I’ll admit that I was dragging my feet when it came to using Cassava flour. I was like, uggggg, another flour to learn.

However, I knew it was time to get all up in it and I’ve discovered that it is seriously super close to traditional wheat flours. It has a 1 to 1 ratio!

What a mistake it was avoiding it because now I can pull out some of my old wheat flour recipes and enjoy them again. Anyhow, I made these biscuits over on 20 Dishes’ Facebook page and you can watch the video here.

WARNING: 

Cassava flour brands vary considerably.  I created this recipe using this Cassava Flour.  When I tried to recreate it as written with another brand it DID NOT come our right and needed to be adjusted.

Even then, the flavor and texture were subpar.  For this reason, I only recommend this Cassava Flour

Hi Kelly, I am very confused by (1) Within body of this recipe you said “Cassava flour brands vary considerably. I created this recipe using 20 Dishes Cassava Flour” the link is not a brand of flour. (2) Under the ingredients list; “2 1/4 cups Cassava Flour which linked to Amazon website for “Cassava Flour by Anthony's, 2 pounds (32 Ounce)” (3) Your reply to Robyn’s comment on April 16, 2018 at 8:54 am stated “I would recommend this flour and this is what I used https://www.hearthyfoods.com/products/copy-of-apple-flour whick linked to different brand “Hearthy foods Cassava flour” Please give clarification on which brand you actually used because you alert the reads with all cap WARNING: “When I tried to recreated it as written with another brand it DID NOT come our right ..”

Are you saying Anthony's Cassava = 20Dishes Cassava? I can't find a "20Dishes Cassava like in the heading - I created this recipe using 20 Dishes Cassava Flour. I have Anthony's and love it, so hopefully that's what you are referring to :) Thanks for all your dedication to this craft of eating well!

Interesting recipe. Thanks. I have almost all of the ingredients with one exception: no Cassava Flour. I do, however, have Tapioca Starch/Flour. Can this be substituted for Cassava?
