I used to buy those canned biscuits all the time until I started making them from scratch at home. This recipe for homemade biscuits is really delicious. This biscuit recipe is so easy to make and they turn out much better than the pop can biscuits. They only take a few minutes to make and cost less than the pop can biscuits too.

  • 2 cups Flour
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1/3 cup Water
  • 1/3 cup Milk we use soy milk to make them dairy free
  • 1/4 cup Oil vegetable, canola, olive whatever you have on hand


  • In a bowl add the flour, salt, and baking powder. Whisk to combine.
  • In a measuring cup at the milk, water, and oil. You can use all milk instead of milk and water but I like to use the water to save a little money.
  • Add the milk mixture to the flour mixture and stir until the flour is moistened.
  • Once the dough clings into a ball, use your hands to knead it in the bowl about 5-6 times.
  • Place the dough on a floured board or surface and pat out about 1/4 inch thick.
  • Cut with a biscuit cutter, or a glass. When I’m feeling lazy I just cut them into squares.
  • Place on a cookie sheet and bake at 450 degrees for 8-12 minutes or until baked through and golden brown. I usually check at 8 minutes so they don’t over bake.
  • Serve warm with butter and jam.
