Best 2-Ingredient Biscuits

These 2-ingredient biscuits are super easy to make and absolutely delicious! Add butter, slather on some jam, or eat them plain. They’re yummy no matter how they’re served!

Homemade Biscuits

I’ve always enjoyed a biscuit, a roll, or piece of bread with a meal. However, more than a decade ago, I discovered that I had a gluten sensitivity. That was a crushing blow.

At first, I thought it meant I had to give up pizza, sandwiches, and many other things I love. However, as time went on, I discovered some amazing options.

Now I’m fine with my diagnosis. I don’t feel the least bit deprived because I’ve learned to figure out a way to get what I want. And these 2-ingredient biscuits are definitely something I want!

Sure, many grocery stores carry a variety of gluten-free breads. However, they cost a fortune. But I still purchase them once in a while … and they’re good.

That still wasn’t good enough for me. So I set out to find ways to have my bread. That involved some research and digging.

These homemade biscuits were originally made with regular flour. And I’m sure they’re good that way.

It took me a while, but I finally figured out how to adapt the recipe to make it gluten-free.

At first, I set out to make rolls, but these turned out more like biscuits. And that’s fine because I like any form of bread.

2-Ingredient Biscuits Ingredients

As the title states, there are only 2 ingredients. You’re even likely to have both of them in your pantry and fridge.

Here’s what you’ll need:

  • 1-1/2 cup of self-rising flour (regular or gluten-free)
  • 1 cup of Greek yogurt (full fat, low fat, or non-fat)
bowl of flour and bowl of yogurt

That’s it! Whether you make these with regular flour or gluten-free flour, they’re delicious!

The yogurt gives them somewhat of a buttermilk flavor, which is a good thing in my world. My great-grandmother used to make buttermilk biscuits all the time, and I ate a lot of them.

How to Make 2-Ingredient Biscuits

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Go ahead and do that before you start mixing the ingredients because it won’t take much time.

Secondly, cover a baking sheet with parchment paper. If the paper is too big, you can either cut or fold it to fit.

Combine the ingredients in a mixing bowl. As you mix it, the dough will start to hold together.

Next, form the dough into ball with your hands.

Place the ball of dough on a floured surface and knead for about a minute.

Make it back into a ball. Then, flatten the ball of dough until it is about 2 inches thick.

Cut the dough into halves and then fourths and then eighths. Or if you do what I do and make half of a recipe, you can just cut the dough into fourths.

Roll each piece of dough into a smaller ball and place each of them on the baking sheet, a few inches apart.

The dough will rise a little bit, but not much.

Bake for 20 minutes and remove from the oven.

Cool for about 5 minutes before serving.

Self-Rising Flour

Although it’s easy to find regular self-rising flour in most grocery stores, that’s not the case with the gluten-free version.

I’ve had to hunt all over the place for it. Sometimes I get it at Whole Foods, and other times I order it online.

When I can’t find gluten-free self-rising flour, I make my own by mixing an all-purpose gluten-free flour with baking powder and salt. For every cup of flour, you’ll need about 1-1/2 teaspoons of baking powder and a dash of salt.

If you like your biscuits with a hint of sweetness, you can use a gluten-free baking mix. I often do that because my husband enjoys them so much.

Biscuit Recipe Add-ons

Occasionally, we like to add other ingredients to the biscuit mixture. Here are some things you can add, either one at a time or a combination of 2 or more:

  • Cheddar cheese
  • Parmesan
  • Garlic
  • Italian seasoning
  • Chopped ham
  • Cooked sausage, chopped into small pieces

What to Serve with Biscuits

When it comes to serving biscuits, you probably already know they’re a delicious breakfast food. You can serve them with a traditional breakfast, such as eggs and bacon.

Or you might prefer to add sausage to make a sausage biscuit sandwich. The same goes for ham.

My grandparents all enjoyed biscuits with gravy. You can pour the gravy over the biscuit or dunk your biscuit in a bowl of red-eye or sausage gravy.

More Bread Recipes

I love making a variety of breads to serve with dinner. Most of them are easy to make and much better than anything you’d buy in a store.

Another good one is this cloud bread. It’s super lightweight, fluffy, and delicious!

We also like cornbread in different forms. My husband likes this southern style cornbread, while I like the fine-ground cornmeal cornbread. We both like these jalapeño corn muffins.

These garden vegetable biscuits from Miz Helen’s Country Cottage are so yummy! You need to try them. They’ll quickly become one of your favorites!

If you’ve never tried a chaffle, it’s time to have one. They look like waffles, but they’re a delicious form of bread that holds up to sandwich fillings and burgers.

Notes

If you want a shiny brown crust, brush an egg wash over the top of the biscuits before baking them.

If you don’t have self-rising flour, you can combine 1-1/4 cup of all-purpose flour with 1-1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, and 1/4 teaspoon of salt. 

If you’re using gluten-free flour, make sure it has xanthan gum. If it doesn’t, add 1 teaspoon.
