Don't know if y'all have ever tied these but they are delicious and so easy to make. All you need is 12 oz. of beer and some self rising flour or Bisquick.

Pour beer into a mixing bowl and add flour a little at a time and mix thoroughly. Keep adding flour and mixing until you get something about the consistency of cake batter. Then fill well greased muffin tin about 2/3-3/4 full and bake at 325 deg. for 45-60min or til golden brown and a knife inserted in the middle comes out clean. They should be nicely browned an crispy on bottom and sides and will lift out easily.

Serve for breakfast or??? w/ butter, jelly, honey or whatever ya like on biscuits. then do this :eating::eating::eating:

SR flour is a little better cuz they won't be so crumbly.

Option: brush tops w/ melted butter when close to being done:drooling:!!

BTW, any beer will be fine, so if you are not a beer drinker buy one can of the cheapest you can find.

Dark beer makes them darker and fuller flavored. I'm not afraid of the dark for drinking, but I like the flavor of lighter beers for biscuits. One 12 oz. beer makes 6 large(pictured) or 12 small in standard muffin tins.

Also made them once in the smoker; interesting if you like em smoked. Goes great w/ smoked fatty!

Smoky; ya like the big pix?

Learned to make these from my Dad's wife. She says you can also make the batter thinner and make pancakes. Haven't tried yet but I will.

I haven't seen any self rising flour out here in the West. I did see a recipe to make it if I can find it. Something like adding baking soda and cream of tartar? Anyway, your biscuits look great! Thanks for posting.:sign0092:

5lbs. All purpose flour 3/4 cup double acting baking powder=5 lb self rising flour. Or 1/2 tsp cream of tartar & 1/4 tsp baking soda per cup of flour. If using Butter Milk increase soda to 1/2 tsp.:sign0111:

Wow, I thought that SR flour was available everywhere. I'm like Smoky, notta baker so I have no clue how to make SR flour. But as I said, you can also use Bisquick or other similar baking mixes. They will taste just as good but will be a bit crumbly vs. chewy bottom w/ soft insides. The crumbly ones are good to eat w/ a fork and drizzled w/ butter.

Good luck!:D

Could one add cheese, jalapeņo and honey? Surely not.

Damned A.D.D.:tap:
