You need Maple Cornmeal Biscuits in your life. They are a wonderfully simple mix between biscuit and crumbly corn bread and only take about 10 minutes to make and another 15 minutes to bake.


  • 1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
  • 1 cup yellow cornmeal
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cup whole milk, cold
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup


  1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment or a baking mat.
  2. In a medium bowl whisk together the wheat flour, cornmeal, baking powder, and salt.
  3. Cut the butter in using a fork or pastry blender until is resembles sand.
  4. In a small bowl mix the milk and maple syrup together. Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until just combined. Using a large scoop, scoop the dough onto the prepared pan. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the pan and serve warm.


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.
