Maple Cornmeal Biscuits

Today is the first day that I’ve attempted to work from home since the baby was born one month ago! If you were to knock on my door right now and judge me by the state of my living room, hair, and pajama-clad kids, then the day might look less than productive. If you are judging my by this post though, it’s a raging success!

I teamed up with King Arthur Flour for this post. It’s not a sponsored post (they aren’t paying me for my work or time, but I LOVE their company and products so that ok with me), but they did send me a bag of flour and a cute biscuit cutter to work with. The funny thing is I didn’t even use the self-rising flour or the biscuit cutter (I used a large scoop!). So keep reading because I want to pass on those treasures to one of you… enter below to win a package from me of some of my beloved King Arthur Flour goodies (shipped by me, provided by King Arthur Flour).

This recipe came from the King Arthur Flour Whole Grain Baking Book; I LOVE this book and highly recommend it. I borrowed it from the library many times before purchasing it for me personal library. Check it out!

I’ve been a long time fan and customer of King Arthur Flour, and was really excited to get an email last month asking if I’d help them spread the love of all things biscuits and their self-rising flour with their #betterbiscuits campaign. Yay! Of course I’ll help! King Arthur Flour (KAF) is an employee-owned company who sells high quality products. I always get their gluten-free mixes for my father-in-law for Christmas, and they are delicious. Their flours are my favorite and I own both their heart-shaped and square stainless steel biscuit cutters! Maybe Santa will get me the round ones for Christmas this year? Their white tea loaf pan is also one of my favorite pieces of bakeware (all these things I’ve purchased myself, I really do love KAF!).

I love supporting them and I’m excited to offer you the chance to enjoy some of their products. Just enter below to win a little care package from me! It will include a 5-pound bag of KAF Self-Rising flour, a biscuit cutter, coupons, recipes cards and some surprises I’ll fit into the box!

Do biscuits need to rise?

Biscuits don’t require rise time because they are a type of quick bread.

Are my biscuits supposed to be crumbly?

These maple cornmeal biscuits were tender but a little crumbly, perfect for eating over a bowl of chowder to catch the crumbs!

Can I substitute whole wheat flour?

You can substitute the whole wheat pastry flour for all-purpose. You can also sub the whole wheat flour for self-rising flour, just reduce the baking powder to 1 teaspoon and omit the salt.
