Muffin Monday - Biscuit Muffins


If you look over on the sidebar under 'Letter Topics,' you'll see one called Muffin Monday. Before today, there were only 11 postings, and the latest one was almost two years ago! I've decided to bring it back, and will post a different muffin recipe as often as I can on Mondays.

Today I thought I'd make a recipe which I got it from a Yahoo baking list eleven years ago.


Biscuit Muffins

2 cups  flour  
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup (one stick) cold butter 
1 egg - slightly beaten  
3/4 cup  milk - I used buttermilk and because the buttermilk was so thick, I added a little regular milk to increase the moisture


In a large mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder and salt.
Cut in the butter with a pastry blender or a fork or two knives.
Combine egg and milk; stir to mix.
Add to the flour mixture and mix just until flour is moistened.
Spoon into a muffin tin, greased with cooking spray; filling about two-thirds full.
Bake at 400º F for 18 to 20 minutes or until lightly browned and tester inserted in center comes out clean.

My note on the recipe from October 28, 2002:
Delicious!  They really do taste like biscuits, without the time of rolling out, and cutting.
I can't believe I haven't made them for ten years. They are great! Tom and I each ate four for supper along with Chickpea and Bulgur Stew.

  3. I have never had any luck with homemade biscuits, so I'm going to give these muffins a try.

    I'm also curious about where the recipe originated...

    1. These are really delicious. There are also a few biscuit recipes that always have worked for me under the Recipes tab, then Biscuits, etc.
      It was the old Bakery Shoppe list.

  4. These look sooo delicious! The Chickpea and Bulgur Stew sounds like something I'd not have any leftovers from ;-)

  6. They sound nice. I've never had much success with muffins - they never seem to rise properly, and the texture is never right. I'm fine with traditional British cakes and biscuits though!

    1. Under the recipes tab, there are a couple regular biscuit recipes which always work out for me. Perhaps you would like to try them and see if you have success with any of them.

  7. Nan, bisquits are one of the things I love most in the world of food, but never developed my mom's talent for making them. This is a recipe I could do and I am going to try it next week, as soon as I get home from Washington DC. The photo made my mouth water.

  10. These biscuit muffins are terrific! In one short month---since I read the recipe on your blog---they've become a family favorite. Just had one for my lunch, along with some cold chicken and an apple. Utterly delicious! Thanks for sharing, Nan!
