Homemade Biscuits Using All-Purpose Flour

Welcome Fall! Tonight it decided to rain and well it sounded like a perfect night for a hearty soup with some biscuits. I’m not a huge fan of using packaged biscuits so I decided to try my hand at making some biscuits from scratch. I will not confirm or deny that flour ended up all over my kitchen and my preggo belly that kept getting in the way! It was fun and very easy!

Homemade Biscuits Using All-Purpose Flour


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 tablespoons butter, cubed (I used margarine since it’s all I had)
  • 3/4 cup milk, (more or less as needed)


  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F.
  2. In a cast iron skillet, butter the bottom of the pan. I sprayed a little oil spray before placing the butter into the pan for added protection.

  3. In a large bowl combine your dry ingredients: flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Cut the butter into the mixture until it looks like cornmeal.

  4. Make a well in the mixture and slowly add in milk to the middle. Knead the dough with your fingers and add milk as necessary. It should form a ball. (Don’t knead too much, just enough for it to form.)

  5. Roll out the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Thickness is up to you, just keep in mind the cooking time will need to be adjusted.

  6. Cut with a small biscuit cutter or the top of a wine glass, you can improvise! Place into buttered cast iron skillet. Brush tops with melted butter. Bake for 12 minutes until golden brown.
