Southern Biscuit Day returns June 5

Newton, N.C. (April 24, 2014) – Do you have the most creative biscuit recipe?  Southern Biscuit® is looking for your original biscuit recipe for the Fourth Annual Southern Biscuit® Day Bake-Off. Renwood Mills is offering free biscuits and sausage from 7 a.m. until noon June 5 on the Historic Courthouse Square in downtown Newton.

“I am looking forward to baking some amazing biscuits that I would have never thought about making before,” said Belinda Ellis, home economist for Renwood Mills. “We have had some delicious submissions in years past and look forward to baking and trying the recipes this year.”

Recipes need to use at least two cups of Southern Biscuit Self-Rising or All-Purpose Flour or Southern Biscuit Formula L Biscuit Mix and must be submitted by May 23. Three finalists will be invited to bring their biscuits on Southern Biscuit® Day, and judges will select a winner based on flavor, appearance and creativity.

The finalists will receive $50 and gifts from Southern Biscuit and have the opportunity to enjoy a free biscuit along with everyone in the town that day. One lucky winner will take home the grand prize of $250.00, and Renwood Mills will publish the recipe on its social media sites.

Southern Biscuit® Day features freshly baked biscuits made from Renwood Mills’ Southern Biscuit Formula L Biscuit Mix and buttermilk. Neese’s Sausage will be cooking its sausage and liver pudding. Stop by on June 5 for a free breakfast whether you’re on the go or can linger for a while.

The bake-off contest is open to anyone at least 18 years old. Submit your recipe, including your name, to Learn more about Renwood Mills at
