As you may already know, I am always trying to bake the perfect biscuit. And the good news is, I think I may have stumbled across a REALLY, REALLY good 2 ingredient biscuits recipe!
It all started when I was working in the test kitchen with my kids. We were all making personal pan pizzas. And when I have the kids making their own pizza, I like to have them roll out and stretch their own dough rather than just putting toppings on a store bought crust.
Seeing as I want them to make their own dough but I also want to maintain my own sanity, I use a 2 ingredient pizza dough recipe. Yes, a 2 ingredient pizza dough recipe.
1 1/2 cups of self-rising flour and one cup of Greek style yogurt. Mix and form into a ball of dough. That’s it.
If you don’t have self-rising flour, DO NOT BUY IT. Make your own by pouring a cup of all purpose flour into a mixing bowl, add 1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder, a 1/4 teaspoon of fine salt and either sift it or mix it well. Money saved.
But back to the biscuits. Sunday morning I woke up and thought to myself, “Hey, I wonder if I can make 2 ingredient biscuits using the same concept?
And I replied, “why not try!” So I did. I made 2 ingredient biscuits.
I used three cups of my homemade self-rising flour and two cups of Greek yogurt which made 8 massive biscuits. Next time I make 2 ingredient biscuits I will cut the dough ingredients in half and make much smaller biscuits. I would also add a 1/2 teaspoon of salt to the dough as well. The biscuits kind of needed it.
As a nod to my family tradition I did sneak in a small handful of grated cheddar cheese – maybe a half cup – to add a cheese flavour to the biscuits. They were better for it.
Once I portioned the biscuits (too large – my mistake) I placed them into a cast iron pan and into the oven which was preheated to 425°. It took 20 minutes to get them baked right through. It probably took longer than usual because my portioning was out of control.
Admittedly these are not “flaky” biscuits. They did have a good texture, a little bit dense to bite compared to a traditional biscuit, but they are amazingly easy to throw together. I will definitely be making these biscuits again!
