These Southern biscuit muffins have a thick crust and a cakey center and don’t require a rolling pin!


Units Scale

2 1/2 c all-purpose flour

1/4 c sugar

1 1/2 T baking powder

1/4 t salt

1 stick plus 2 T unsalted butter or 1/4 lb plus 2 T of very cold butter

1 c cold milk


Preheat oven to 350.

In a bowl, combine the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Mix well.

I grate the very cold butter into the flour mixture, however you can cut it into tablespoons or smaller and then work it in with your hands until the flour mixture resembles coarse cornmeal.

Gradually stir in the cold milk, mixing until the ingredients are just moistened. DO NOT overmix.

Spoon the batter into 12 greased standard sized muffin cups.

Bake at 350 until golden brown, about 35 – 40 minutes.


The finished muffin should have a thick crust with a cakey center.

These muffins are also a touch on the sweet side. I think they are perfect, but if you like a less sweet muffin, decrease the sugar by 1 tablespoon.
