Fluffy Biscuit Muffins Recipe

THESE BISCUITS are simple to make and have a wonderful aroma when baking! This particular recipe is one of my husband's favorites - and biscuits were a steady diet in the Southern household where he grew up. The muffin shape makes them a bit different. -Virginia Foster, Paducah, Kentucky
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 20 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 1 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup milk


  • 1. Preheat oven to 425°. In a bowl, cut flour and mayonnaise together until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Add milk; stir just until mixed. Spoon into four greased muffin cups. Bake 14-16 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 4 biscuits.
Editor's Note: As a substitute for 1 cup of self-rising flour, place 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a measuring cup. Add all-purpose flour to measure 1 cup.

"You won't find an easier recipe than this. The biscuits turn out light and fluffy. It may seem odd the put mayo in the dough but give it try. You don't taste it. I put mayo in my bread recipe in place of the oil sometimes and it turns out great tasting too."

"This recipe was so easy and very good. Being a southern girl, I used buttermilk instead of milk and added 1/4 teaspoon soda to the flour mixture. I also used a pastry blender to work in the mayonnaise and it only took a few seconds to have it blended. This will be a regular recipe for breakfast and dinner."

"Mine were light and fluffy, the texture was great. I think the flavor was lacking a bit. We had to eat them with lots of butter and honey. I will try them again but with some added ingredients. It did take longer than I expected to get the mayo properly cut in. Good base recipe I think."

"These were pretty good. You don't really taste the mayonnaise at all, which is good because I don't like mayo at all. They were fluffy and had a nice texture. I don't have self-rising flour so I just added 1-1/2 tsp baking powder and 1/2 tsp salt as directed and it was delicious. The edges also crisp up nicely with a nice light fluffy interior."

"Mine were very dense, not fluffy, and they didn't spread out in the muffin cups...flour was new...maybe I mixed too much after adding the milk? Any suggestions? Such an easy recipe with ingredients I'm never out of...I will figure out what I did wrong!"

"I love these! Previous attempts at biscuit making have failed. I am glad to find something quick and easy to make. They are so moist, soft and super delicious. I will be making them again and again. Thank you!!!"

"CWbuff have you ever tried using a food processor to cut the fat into the flour?  If I had to wager a guess, I'd say you're giving up on the cutting process too soon maybe."

Reviewed Dec. 13, 2012

"Why is it that every time I cut in the fat, like butter or mayo, to the flour, it never seems to get all the flour and leaves a lot unmixed? I have to double or triple the fat to get all the flour incorporated. Is that because my flour tends to stand around because I don't bake a lot? Anyway, I doubled the mayo in this recipe and the biscuits still tasted like dry flour. Next time I will try tripling the mayo. This is very frustrating as it happens with just about every recipe which calls for cutting in fat till "represents coarse crumbs" I have ever tried."
