Maw-Maw’s Biscuits

04 Mar

Somehow, the oven quit at Caleb’s house. This was a random happenstance that saddened us all, because Maw-Maw relies on the oven to make her biscuits.

So she decided to go a different route and fry her biscuits on the stove top. This worried her greatly.


But never fear: the biscuits turned out amazingly. The texture was somewhere between a biscuit and cornbread. I thought the whole thing tasted a lot like hoe cake, and I love hoe cake.

That’s the old Southern cooking magic for you.

Caleb swears that Maw-Maw is a witch. She’s not really a witch, of course, and if she is, she hides her spell books really well.

In another blog, we’ll look at the difference between rolled out biscuits and drop biscuits.

    I would love to have some bread, but have sworn off for two months. Don’t know if I’ll make it that long.

      Those biscuits were amazing, but Maw-Maw thought we were pulling her leg.
