I grew up in Tuscaloosa, home of The Alabama Crimson Tide. Everyone in my neighborhood served some variation of this biscuit several times a week. Mary King, also known as MayMay, prepared these biscuits daily. She did not measure the ingredients. The neighborhood children watched her prepare the delicious quick bread, and sometimes she let us help prepare the biscuits. Some of the neighbors referred to them as Bama Biscuits while others called them MayMay's Biscuits.
