Maple-Cinnamon Biscuits

June, 2018

This delightful cross between a cinnamon bun and a tea biscuit whips up a dough that’s oh-so-easy to work with, and the end result is a kitchen filled with the warm scent of cinnamon.

2 tbsp butter

¼ cup plus ½ cup brown sugar

1 tbsp maple syrup

2 cups flour

1 tbsp baking powder

1 tbsp white sugar

¼ tsp salt

¾ cup milk

¼ cup plus 1 tbsp sunflower oil

½ tsp cinnamon

Add the butter, ¼ cup of brown sugar, and maple syrup to an 8 x 8-inch pan, lightly oiled or sprayed with cooking spray. Place into your oven and preheat to 350°F.

In a bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, white sugar and salt. Mix well. Stir in the milk and oil. Combine using your hands, giving the dough a few quick kneads to pull it together.

On a floured surface, roll out the dough into a 9 x 14-inch rectangle. Combine ½ cup of brown sugar with the cinnamon, and sprinkle evenly over the dough. Starting at the long edge, form the dough into a rolled log. Using a sharp knife, cut 9-to-12 even slices.

Remove the warmed pan with the sugar-butter mixture from the oven, give it a stir, and arrange your cinnamon biscuits in the pan. Place in the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm. t8n
