Today I didn’t eat lunch at work. And after a 9 hour day, I was pretty hungry. I half heartedly expected there to be food in our break room; however, (to my utter disappointment) there was no birthday this week and no left overs from all-nighters or take-out from the previous day.
I wanted something savory, delicious, and a finger food. So, it popped into my head that I was going to attempt to make Jim ‘n Nicks Cheese Biscuits. Ohhhhh Yummy Yummy. So I did just that.
Center a rack in the oven and preheat the oven to 400 degrees F. Butter or spray the 12 molds in a regular-size muffin pan.
Combine flour, sugar, and baking powder in a large bowl and set aside. Whisk egg, milk, butter, and vanilla together in a medium-sized bowl and set aside. Pour the liquid ingredients over the dry ingredients and, with the whisk or a rubber spatula, gently but quickly stir to blend.
If you should decide to make these wonderful little morsels here are some tips that others added to the gastronomy blog… (and maybe I should’ve read those before I already poured the batter into the muffin pans.)
Incorporate shredded cheese into batter. Do not over mix.
Divide batter evenly among greased muffin tins. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes. When fully baked, the tops of the biscuits will be golden and springy to the touch and a thin knife inserted into the center of the biscuits will come out clean. Transfer the pan to a rack and cool for 5 minutes before carefully removing each biscuit from its mold.
Makes 10 to 12 biscuits.” (I doubled the ingredients and it made 36 mini muffins)
Something went horribly wrong!!!
My muffins look beautiful but they have the consistency of something gummy. I’m having a hard time putting it into words. Its like the ingredients never bonded together and it has an overcooked cheese look to the center but the consistency of a hard paste or gross playground foam. GROSS. Just Look…
- Maybe try using Buttermilk instead of regular milk.
- Somewhere in there Corn Meal needs to be used. One person suggested using 1/2 flour and 1/2 Self Rising Corn Meal.
- Possibly reduce the sugar to 1/2 c.
- It needs some salt
- And probably REAL SUGAR. Silly me. **I’m still learning!!!!
Any Suggestions? … Help. Me.
