Why is it when i bake biscuits the bottom burns and the top is real soft like its not cooked? ? ? It drives me insane! What am i doing wrong? ?

Where is your baking tray in the oven? For biscuits I bake about half way up, this keeps them away from the lower element, and allows them to cook through.

Maybe oven is too hot. Biscuits usually bake @ 180 - 190. What temp o you have the oven?

I think your oven is too hot. I usually do biscuits on 350 on fan bake for 20min, a little higher if not fan.

Yup, oven normally bout 180c. Helps to bake them on Baking paper so bottoms dont burn & I also have them just under half way in oven. Dont constantly open oven to check them.

It may not be you. You COULD have your tray too low in the oven, or your thermostat may be out of whack. Try the next rung up in the oven next time, if you still have a problem, get an oven thermometer and check your temps.

I had that prob in an old house and turned out it was the thermostat gone bung. Don't think it was too expensive to fix.

You could try baking the biscuits on a silicone cookie sheet.
