As promised last week when I shared my homemade sausage gravy, today I’m sharing my can’t-fail super easy homemade biscuit recipe. This is the biscuit recipe for people who think they can’t make biscuits. It’s totally from scratch and you don’t need anything fancy whatsoever. Start to finish they take about thirty minutes so it’s a fast recipe too.
These biscuits are more like drop biscuits, there’s no rolling out the dough so you don’t need a biscuit cutter. They are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dinner and you have all the ingredients already in your kitchen. If you want your biscuits to be “prettier” you can easily roll the dough out on a lightly floured surface to 2″ thick and cut with a biscuit cutter. I rarely take the extra time to do this because they taste the same and it keeps my kitchen cleaner!

- Cuisine: American
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 4 teaspoons baking powder

I love these for breakfast with my sausage gravy like I mentioned but they are also delicious warm out of the oven with butter and jam as well. For dinner, we’ll serve these on the side with hearty meals like pot roast, stews, and soups. This is also a great recipe to have the kids help out with, it’s almost impossible to mess up and they’ll be so proud of themselves for helping!
What would you serve these biscuits with? Do you make your own homemade from scratch biscuits yet?
