To make it, mix equal amounts of self-rising flour and milk (whole milk or buttermilk with a 1/8 tsp baking soda added). Mixture should be the consistency of thick pudding--add more milk or flour to desired consistency. Heat enough bacon fat to prevent sticking in an iron skillet till very hot. Fry spoonfuls of dough till brown and crispy on the bottom then turn and continue frying till done. These are great served with the same toppings as biscuits, including butter, jam, gravy, or any of your other favorites.
Other oils and types of skillets can be used for frying but bacon fat and an iron skillet makes the best. A mixture of 1/2 bacon fat and 1/2 olive oil is an acceptable substitute.
