Maple Cornmeal Biscuits (TWD)

This week's Tuesdays with Dorie (TWD) recipe was chosen by Lindsay of A Little Something...Sweeet!: Maple Cornmeal Biscuits. Cornmeal biscuits don't sound all too exciting, but since these are maple cornmeal biscuits, I was willing to give them a try ;) I love maple syrup and anything maple-flavored, so I figured these were worth a taste.  (Truth be told, I only had a tablespoon of maple syrup left in the jug after making these biscuits and I just licked it right out of the container!)

Like most biscuits, this recipe was quick and easy.  Even easier than some biscuit recipes because they are drop biscuits that don't need to be rolled and cut.  The baking time for these was several minutes less than indicated in the recipe, so be sure to keep a close eye on them!

I was a bit disappointed that the maple flavor wasn't very prominent in these biscuits.  They were, however, delicious on their own without any butter or jam.  Perhaps adding more maple syrup and less milk would make them taste more like maple cornmeal biscuits?

Thanks Lindsay, for hosting this week. I think these would be great alongside some chili instead of traditional cornbread. If you would like the recipe, you can find it here. Make sure you check out the TWD Blogroll, to see how everyone else enjoyed this homey treat!


  1. They look so good..sorry I had to miss this one!

  2. These were great and I love how easy they were. I love cornmeal in baked goods.

  3. I love maple, too. I was hoping for more of a punch from the maple, so I was slightly disappointed. Still, pretty tasty little biscuits!

  4. I think your biscuits look great. I think that the sweetness was nice but they work in a savory application, too. I over baked mine so they were fairly dry and were only good right out of the oven.

  5. These look delicious! I love Maple Syrup and would probably drizzle it over the biscuit between bites.
