Just two ingredients:

  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup heavy cream

That’s all you need! These simple ingredients are likely already in your kitchen. I served these biscuits with fried eggs, sliced strawberries, and a milk gravy.

Tips for Perfect Biscuits:

  • Butter Is Better: Using butter in the skillet not only prevents sticking but also adds a rich, golden crust to the bottom of your biscuits.
  • Cold Cream: Ensure your heavy cream is cold to help achieve a tender texture in your biscuits.
  • Customizations: This recipe is wonderfully versatile. Add cheese, herbs, or a touch of sugar to the dough for flavored biscuits.

Why You’ll Love This Recipe:

This 2-ingredient biscuit recipe is ideal for anyone looking to simplify their baking without sacrificing taste. I like to bake my biscuits and cornbread in a cast iron skillet. The cast iron skillet and the melted butter create a uniquely flavorful and textured biscuit that’s sure to impress.

Whether you’re a novice baker or just looking for a quick and satisfying recipe, these biscuits are a perfect choice.

Next time you’re in the mood for something warm and comforting, give these biscuits a try. They’re quick, easy, and delectably buttery—a superb addition to any meal!

How to Make 2 ingredient Heavy cream biscuits

Step 1. Preheat Your Oven and Skillet: Begin by preheating your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Place your cast iron skillet in the oven with a couple of tablespoons of butter to melt while you prepare the dough. Alternatively, prepare a baking sheet with oil or parchment paper.

Step 2. Mix the Ingredients: In a large bowl, combine the self-rising flour and heavy cream. Stir gently until just mixed; avoid overworking the dough to keep your biscuits tender.

Step 3. Prepare the Dough: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Pat it gently to about 1/2 inch thickness. Fold over once and gently pat down again. Use a biscuit cutter or a sharp knife to shape your biscuits. If you use a knife, cut them into squares to avoid leftover scraps and the need to re-roll.

Note: If you use a biscuit cutter, don’t twist the cutter when you pull it up. Just press down and then pull straight up.

Step 4. Bake the Biscuits: Carefully remove the hot skillet from the oven. The butter should be melted and slightly bubbling. Place the biscuits in the skillet, allowing them to soak up some of the butter. Then, put the skillet back in the oven.

Step 5. Bake for 10-12 Minutes: Bake until the biscuits are puffed up and golden brown on top.

Step 6. Serve and Enjoy: Take the skillet out of the oven. The biscuits will have lovely, crispy bottoms from the butter. Serve warm for the best experience… But I have to say, leftover biscuits are always a happy thing!
