Homemade Biscuits

Daniel often has to get up at 4 am to go to school for PT (Army training stuff), so he enjoys a good breakfast. One breakfast item that he loves is whole wheat biscuits, which I sometimes buy from the grocery store if they are on sale. I was always shy about making homemade biscuits because I thought that it would be time consuming. Since I didn’t want to get up at 3 am to fix a hot breakfast, I let Pillsbury do all the work at 4 am. After awhile I decided that buying biscuits is sort of expensive, so it was time for me to put my armor on and a brave face to conquer my biscuit making fear. And can I just tell you that I was shocked how easy and quick it is to make homemade from scratch biscuits!


1 cup all purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
4 tsp baking powder
1 tbs sugar
¾ tsp salt
¼ cup butter
1 cup milk (I used buttermilk

mix all dry ingredients together and add chunks of butter

add butter milk
start working the dough (knead) so that all ingredients are incorporated until you can form a ball with the dough

Roll out the dough and use a cup to form biscuits

Bake biscuits at 350F for 10-12 minutes until golden brown

I love biscuits with jelly!


  1. These look soooo good! I've been looking for a biscuit recipe, so I'll definitely give these a try!

  2. Can you mail some to Canada? :)
