I don't have baking powder. Can I still make biscuits?

I have baking soda. I don't have buttermilk or any way to sour the milk like vinegar or lemon juice.

    Use the baking soda, and add orange or lemon juice to the mixture. Alternative add apple puree. Use less baking soda than you would baking powder and note that orange juice and apple puree both contain sugar [even if made without adding sugar] so adjust the amount of sugar you use to take this into account. The above should work provided you do not mind fruit flavoured biscuits.

    You can, but they'll be flat. Baking powder makes them rise.
