What's For Breakfast? Maple Biscuit Bites!

Looking for something quick and tasty for breakfast?  This comes together in about 10 minutes, with another 20 to cook.  And it is wonderfully tasty!

Maple Biscuit Bites


  • 4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup cold butter
  • 1 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar 
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 cup butter

1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Spray a 9x13-inch baking pan with cooking spray; set aside. In a large bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Using a pastry blender, cut in 3/4 cup cold butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Make a well in the center of the flour mixture. Add milk and maple syrup all at once. Using a fork, stir just until dough forms a ball.

2. Drop by spoonfuls into the baking pan in one layer.  In a small bowl combine butter, sugars and pumpkin pie spice. Melt the butter and sugar-spice mixture (30 seconds in the microwave) and pour over the layer of biscuits.

3. Bake in the preheated oven for 18 to 20 minutes or until golden.  Cool and serve bites with a fork.

This is a little like maple-monkey bread.  It would also make a great base for a fall dessert, served with baked apples or pears and some whipped cream - like strawberry shortcake for fall.

Hope you enjoy your breakfast as much as we enjoy this!
