So my families go-to place for recipes has always been Southern Living Cookbooks. And instead of going straight to an internet blog for a recipe, I did it old school and looked for a good recipe in a whoo-bangin’ (awesome) cookbook.
So here is the recipe from the 1983 Southern Living Cookbook. (btw, this is one of the best years — If you were to only pick up one, pick up this one)
- 1 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 3/4 cup (3 ounces) grated sharp Cheddar cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 cup milk
- 1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted
Combine first 4 ingredients in a large bowl; add cheese, and mix well. Make a well in [the] center of [the] mixture. Combine egg, milk, and butter; add to dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened. Spoon into crease muffin pans, filling two-thirds full. Bake at 400 for 25 minutes. Yield: 1 dozen.”
So naturally, I made 3 dozen again. And these were good.
I’ve learned that cooking is fun when you’re in good company. My baby monster dog, Porcini, had a play-date that night with his new friend, Gabby. And she is a well-behaved young lady and he, of course, is a hellian with hormones. Yeah, us.
Such a good time with friends and pups!
