How to Make The Best Dutch Oven Biscuits Ever

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

It’s getting a little cooler outside so I want to show you how to make the best Dutch oven biscuits ever! This is my friend, Kathleen’s recipe with a little tweaking on my part. When we go to dinner at Kathleen and Brent’s, she will ask me if I want bread or biscuits. It’s hard because she makes the best artisan bread, but I usually say biscuits. These are so light, flaky and yet moist in the center. I have to say, you do not even need butter or jam with them. But of course, my husband always likes jam. He likes any and all berry jams to be exact. Oh my gosh, my mouth is watering for these as I write this post.

I love this recipe because they can be made from scratch to go with just about any meal. I’m sure the pioneers made biscuits a lot!

  • 4 teaspoons SAF  instant yeast
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 5 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 cup  butter softened
  1. I dump everything in a large bowl in the order shown above and use a Danish whisk and then use my hands. I add more flour as needed. I sprinkle flour on the counter and knead the dough quickly and roll out to 1/2 inch thick. I use a cookie or biscuit cutter. Grease a cookie sheet or Dutch oven. Bake in the house at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes. If you use a 6-quart Dutch oven outside to bake them use 10 briquettes on the bottom and 14 briquettes on the lid or top. Bake for 10 minutes or until lightly browned.

    would it be possible to incorporate natural yeast in this recipe,as opposed to the regular yeast.? Since I have found out about the health benefits of this type of yeast I use none other

      Hi Jank, I do use natural yeast made with whole wheat flour to make pancakes, crepes, and some bread. Is this the natural yeast you are talking about? My good friend, Melissa Richardson makes biscuits with natural yeast. She wrote the book “The Art of Baking With Natural Yeast.” I am sure you can tweak the recipe and use it. Linda

    yes, exactly. I do have both of her books, they are so informative. I just love baking bread in a dutch oven, the crust and texture is fantastic. I will give the biscuits a try with the natural yeast
