A biscuit is a flour-based baked food product.
The type of biscuit found in Africa, Asia, and Europe is typically hard, flat, and unleavened.
In North America, a biscuit is typically a soft, leavened quick bread.
A biscuit in the United States and parts of Canada, is a variety of small baked goods with a firm browned crust and a soft, crumbly interior. They are usually made with baking powder or baking soda as a chemical leavening agent rather than yeast.
They developed from hardtack which was first made from only flour and water, with later first lard and then baking powder being added.
Biscuits, soda breads, and cornbread, among others, are often referred to collectively as "quick breads", to indicate that they do not need time to rise before baking.
