I’m always looking for easy recipes, and my Aunt Lynn told me that she had a simple and delicious biscuit recipe of my Nana’s that she often used. Annabel loves anything you can put butter on, so I had my aunt come over and we made my Nana’s light and fluffy three ingredient biscuits!
Nana’s Three Ingredient Biscuits
Preheat your oven to 475 degrees. In a mixing bowl, combine the Bisquick and baking soda.
Slowly add the milk (a bit at a time) and mix thoroughly before adding more milk.
You are looking for the dough to “ball up.” If you’ve added too much milk, add just a bit more Bisquick until it balls up (vs. being sticky).
Cut round biscuits out with a drinking glass or biscuit cutter. Depending on the size of the glass, you should get about 7-10 biscuits.
I overcooked them the first time. This upset many people who were standing around waiting for biscuits.
Luckily, my second batch turned out MUCH better.
Annie was stoked to have a biscuit with butter.
Three thumbs up! One for every ingredient….get it? Eh, I know.
- 2 cups of Bisquick
- ½ tsp. baking soda
- ⅔ cup milk
- Preheat oven to 475 degrees.
- In a mixing bowl, combine the Bisquick and baking soda.
- Slowly add the milk (a bit at a time) and mix thoroughly each time. You are looking for the dough to "ball up." If you've added too much milk, add just a bit more Bisquick until it balls up (vs. being sticky).
- Plop the dough onto a floured board. Press the dough down a bit and then fold it over once.
- Gently press it down again to about ½" - ¾" thick.
- Cut round biscuits out with a drinking glass or biscuit cutter.
- You will probably get 4 biscuits the first time (depending on the size of the drinking glass). Gently mold and press the remaining biscuit dough out again and cut additional biscuits.
- Place the round biscuits onto an ungreased cooking sheet.
- Spread some milk on top of the biscuits with a pastry brush or simply with your fingers.
- Bake for 12-15 minutes. Keep an eye on them. You don't want to overcook.
