When I got married a friend of mine, in the city I was moving to, held a shower for me. One of the older ladies had brought some homemade bisquits for the luncheon. They were soooo good! When I asked her for the recipe she, literally, rattled it off in her head. I’m not that good, yet. But I hope one day my “no-fail” recipes will be right on the tip of my tongue. These are the easiest things to make, seriously. And it makes about 24 bisquits. When I’m making this for just my family I do cut the recipe in half (we don’t need 24!)…so you know it will still work if you half the recipe.
Mrs. Wick’s No-Fail Bisquits
1 cup whole wheat flour
3 cups white flour
8 Tbsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
3/4 cup of margarine (or butter)
2 cups milk (or less)
Combine all the ingredients in bowl. When adding the milk, add a bit at a time, until batter is moist.
Place rounds of dough (slightly smaller than a baseball) in muffin tins and place in the oven at 420 degrees for 15 minutes.
See how easy that is? Seriously!!! I’ve never had anything go wrong (touch wood) with this recipe. I was talking to Mrs. Wick’s about how much my husband loves these bisquits (he eats like 6 at a meal) and she said she has trouble getting hers to brown properly in her oven…so you might need to adjust the temperature if you know your oven is temperamental. I actually put my oven on at about 400 because it bakes hotter.
I’ve also substituted the whole wheat flour for gluten-free and they turned out even nicer than they have in the past! Note: this does not make them gluten-free as I still used the white flour in them!
