Servings 8 Biscuits


  • 1 ⅓ Cup All Purpose Flour
  • Cup Yellow Cornmeal NOT polenta or grits!
  • 2 ¼ teaspoon Baking Powder
  • ¼ teaspoon Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoon Salt
  • 2 teaspoon Granulated Sugar
  • 8 tablespoon Cold Non-Dairy Butter, cut into cubes I used Country Crock Plant Butter Sticks
  • Cup Plain Unsweetened Plant Milk
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Juice or White Vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 425* F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a small measuring cup, combine plant milk and lemon juice. Set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, combine flour, cornmeal, baking powder, baking soda, salt and sugar.
  • Add non dairy butter cubes into the dry ingredients. Cut the butter into the dries with a pastry cutter or two forks until the mixture looks like a coarse meal.
  • Pour the plant milk and lemon juice or vinegar mixture into the dry ingredients and fold together with a rubber spatula just until everything is moistened and then stop immediately.
  • Using a ¼ cup measuring cup that has been sprayed with non stick spray, portion biscuits onto the parchment lined sheet tray leaving at least 2 inches of space between each biscuit.
  • Bake in a 425* oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown across the entire bottom.
  • Cool slightly and enjoy while warm. Freeze what you don't eat that day and reheat in the oven or toaster oven for best results.
