Mrs. Marvin’s Magic Muffins: More from the Nancy Drew Cookbook

Here’s another gem from the 1976 Nancy Drew Cookbook. Is Mrs. Marvin the mom of one of her friends? I believe so. I thought these sounded too easy. Would this really work?

1 cup self-rising flour

3 tablespoons mayonnaise

1/2 cup milk

Heat the oven to 400F.

Mix the flour and mayonnaise in a mixing bowl. Add milk, a small amount at a time, stirring only until dry particles are moistened. Grease a 6-muffin tin and spoon in the mixture. Bake for 20 minutes.

We had a whirlwind weekend. Kyle won an overnight at a hotel with some meals, and the boys had their first sleepover at my brother’s house. Then there was a family party there when we picked them up for birthdays and Father’s day. Yesterday we visited both Grandpas and ended up out to dinner. I hope your was enjoyable also!

    More of a biscuit, it would seem to me. But the mayo might be a nice touch if you were to perhaps be serving them with a bit of ham on a brunch buffet. Mayonnaise as an ingredient which always leave me wondering “can I use Miracle Whip instead?” Being raised on Miracle Whip means mayo is all but from another planet! Congrats on the overnight mini get-away!

    I guess this is a biscuit recipe, it does seem odd though doesn’t it?

    I’m a HUGE Nancy Drew nerd and Mrs. Marvin is indeed the mother of her friend, Bess.

    Love the site, by the by!
