30 Minute Drop Biscuits – No Butter (Pantry Staple Recipe)

Make easy fluffy drop biscuits, no butter required, in 30 minutes! Pantry staples like flour, baking powder, sugar make these SO easy! Serve with soup, salad, or with your main course.

I made these biscuits on a whim with dinner – we were having roasted vegetables (very healthy!) and I wanted to have something a little  more filling on the side. These biscuits were ready in 30 minutes, I made them while dinner was roasting in the oven!

These biscuits require only a few ingredients, and come together super quickly. These are a basic biscuit – but you can always jazz it up by adding a tablespoon of chives, garlic, cheese, rosemary, etc. The world (or biscuit) is your oyster with these!

Whats In These Drop Biscuits?

  • Flour: I used all purpose, but you can you what you have on hand.  If you are gluten free, use a 1:1 baking mix and these should turn out just fine!
  • Sugar: or sweetener of choice.  As a beekeeper, I have tons of honey at home so next time I’ll sub out the sugar for some raw honey.. yum!
  • Salt: or a salt substitute
  • Baking Powder
  • Baking Soda
  • Cream: I used heavy cream because I had some in the fridge, and also because #yum

This recipe makes an even dozen of biscuits. Great for dinner with the family, as these will go fast!  My husband and I each had one biscuit for dinner… and when I went to clean up later, 4 more were gone 🙂 Apparently these were a huge hit with the hubby.

These are so easy and can be whipped up with a hot batch of soup, made ahead for hosting a brunch, or to just eat as a snack! Top with easy chia seed jam, mashed avocado, or your favorite spread and enjoy!

How Do I Make Drop Biscuits?

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit, move rack to center. Line a sheet pan with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, salt, baking powder, and baking soda to combine ingredients. Pour in the cream and gently fold the dough until it thickens.
Place about 2 tablespoons of dough for each biscuit on the parchment paper – no need to form them, just drop them on the sheet pan 🙂
Put the biscuits in the oven and bake for 18-20 minutes, rotating the sheet pan halfway during cooking.
Once finished, remove biscuits from oven and let them cool slightly before serving. Enjoy!
