Cheddar Biscuit Cups

Cheddar Biscuit Cups

This has got to be one of THE easiest and THE most delicious muffin/biscuit/bread recipes (whatever you want to call it) you will ever make! Simply mix together four (that's right, only four) ingredients: self-rising flour, shredded cheddar, mayonnaise (for the moistness, really), and milk. Spoon the batter into five muffin tins, bake for 20 minutes, and voila! You get a warm, fluffy, perfectly flavored biscuit that's perfect for any occasion: breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a simple snack. I think the self-rising flour is key in this recipe. It contains enough salt for taste, enough baking powder for plenty of rise, and it creates a crispy, almost cracker-tasting outside...yet the biscuits remain soft and fluffy on the inside. The cheddar flavor is not overwhelming, but adds a nice sharp richness. Other cheeses would probably be a nice substitute, maybe a nice Gruyere or fresh Parmesan. To really jazz these up, add some herbs such as basil, oregano, chives...the possibilities are endless. But for a quick satisfying bread, make as is and enjoy!

Make again? Definitely. Looks like self-rising flour will have to become a staple pantry item now. And the recipe is easily doubled...or even tripled as tasty as these are!
