Try a new biscuit twist with this golden, cheesy, cornbread version. Perfect with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey!


Units Scale
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 cup corn meal
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cubed and chilled
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese, grated
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves OR 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 cup buttermilk


  1. Preheat oven to 450˚F. Prepare a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silpat.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, corn meal, garlic powder, baking powder, baking soda, and sea salt.
  3. Add the cubed butter, and using either a pastry blender, two forks or a food processor, cut the butter into the mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add the cheddar cheese and thyme, stir until just combined.
  5. Pour in the buttermilk and stir until just combined.
  6. Take about two tablespoons of dough at a time into your hand and roll into a rough ball. Place the balls of dough onto the prepared baking sheet and gently flatten with your hand.
  7. Bake for 15 minutes, until golden.
  8. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes. Serve warm with a pat of butter and a drizzle of honey for best taste!
