Nothing completes a comfort food meal, like fresh dinner rolls or fresh flakey biscuits. But what if you don’t have that kind of time?

I was recently reminded of an incredibly simple recipe that I first made many years ago. Unless I miss my guess, I first saw it on the side of a baking powder container.

The idea was to have a stir and bake recipe, that could be used to serve along with things like hearty soups and stews.

It sort of also reminded me of what some parts of Newfoundland know as a “pastry” or “crust. That recipe is simple mixture of flour, baking powder, butter and milk to form a loose dough.

Then, it was baked, draped over a roast or in a pan to serve with the dinner and gravy. For some, a roast dinner is just not complete without it.

 Biscuit Muffin Bread. A “fill you up” recipe.

Those sorts of recipes, like a Figgy Duff, were undoubtedly used as economical ways to “fill  you up” and stretch a meal even further.

For me though, they are now part of any good comfort food meal. Instead of being used as a budget stretcher, nowadays they are seen as something to make a meal extra special and more homey.

This recipe fits that bill perfectly and with the most minimal time and effort.

The recipe also reminds me of southern cornbread, another uncomplicated but homey addition to many meals like our Braised Beef Chili. Come to think it, this biscuit muffin bread would be great with that chili too.

These can also be made as quick, plain muffins, served warm on a weekend morning with butter your favourite jam. You may want to add a couple more tablespoons of sugar and a tsp of vanilla extract if using them for this purpose. 

Totally simple, but totally delicious and comforting. Well worth trying.

Biscuit Muffin Bread. Ready in 30 minutes!

Biscuit Muffin Bread. Ready in 30 minutes! An incredibly quick, easy, versatile, 6 ingredient recipe, that can take the place of bread rolls or biscuits at dinner or muffins for brunch.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups flour
  • 3 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp sugar (optional) (See notes below)
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 2 cups milk

Instructions

  1. Grease a 12 muffin pan well and preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt in a bowl to combine well.
  3. Quickly whisk in the milk and melted butter until well combined. This mixes very quickly but don't over mix. A few lumps in the batter is fine and does not harm the recipe at all.
  4. Bake for about 18-20 minutes or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
  5. Depending on your oven, these may not brown that much on top but that's fine too. As long as they pass the toothpick test, take them out. Better to have pale tops than be over baked.
  6. Cool on a wire rack for a few minutes before serving.

Notes

When serving at breakfast or brunch you may want to increase the sugar by a couple of tablespoons and add a tsp of pure vanilla extract with the butter and milk.

Hello Barry, I love your recipes, so far, they all turn out and are a hit with family and friends. However, there seems to be a problem with the pictures on almost all of the recipes as well as a way to communicate at the end of those recipes with no picture. Would this be an issue with your provider? Anyway, I hope this problem can be resolved. Perhaps it's a problem with our povider.
