Saskatoon Berry & Honey Sticky Biscuits

I’m in Toronto today – at editorial meetings at the Parents Canada offices (très professional, doesn’t that sound? I think that means I have to change out of my yoga pants) – but back in Calgary the theme this morning was prairie cuisine on the Eyeopener, and so I made these biscuits out of prairie wheat, canola oil, milk, Saskatoon berries and honey. Très delish.

Saskatoon Berry & Honey Sticky Biscuits

Recipe link


June 5, 2012

  • Makes: Makes 9 sticky biscuits.



1 cup saskatoon berries or blueberries

1/4 cup honey (plus extra, if you like)


2 Tbsp. butter

2 Tbsp. packed brown sugar

3 Tbsp. honey


2 cups flour

1 Tbsp. baking powder

1 Tbsp. sugar

1/4 tsp. salt

3/4 cup milk

1/4 cup canola oil


1To make the filling, simmer the saskatoon berries and honey in a small saucepan over medium heat until the berries burst. Set aside to cool slightly.

2Put the butter, brown sugar and honey into an 8”x8” pan that has been sprayed with non-stick spray, put it in the oven and turn it on to 350°F.

3In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the milk and canola oil and stir by hand just until you have a soft dough. Do not overmix!

4On a lightly floured surface, pat or roll the dough into a 9” x 14” rectangle. Spread with the cooled saskatoon berry mixture. If you like, drizzle with a little extra honey.

5Starting from a long side, roll tightly jelly-roll style into a log. Cut into 9 biscuits using dental floss or a serrated knife, and place cut side down in the pan.

6Bake for 20 minutes, until golden and bubbly. Invert onto a platter while still warm.

Makes: Makes 9 sticky biscuits.

    What a perfect idea to cover a prairie theme! You covered it all, Julie. I think several of us will cover those bases as well!

    Today, I went to the beachfront with my children.
    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put
    the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally off topic but I had
    to tell someone!
