Dutch Oven Buttermilk Biscuits

These are easy three-ingredient Dutch oven buttermilk biscuits that are perfect to make while camping.

The recipe asks for frozen butter but I have used really cold butter straight off the ice in a cooler and they have worked. Alternatively, the butter can be swapped out for lard.

Biscuits are very practical and flexible in a camp setting and can be used in replacement of bread, as biscuits and gravy for breakfast, to make a sandwich, or even as a snack by themselves.

Ingredients

2 1/2 cups self rising flour

1 cup frozen grated butter, or lard

1 cup buttermilk, or as needed

Equipment

mixing bowl

12 inch Dutch oven

Recipe Directions

  1. In the bowl add in order the flour, grated butter, then buttermilk.

  2. using a butter knife gently stir to form a sticky dough, do not overmix or knead.

  3. Turn the mixture out onto a floured surface and pat down to about 3/4 inch (2cm) thick then cut into your preferred sized biscuits. A cook cutter, can, or cup may be used among other things.

    Tip: push directly down when cutting out the biscuits, if the cutter is twisted they do now rise as much.

  4. Place into a preheated lightly greased Dutch oven and cook at 355 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 20 minutes.

  5. When cooked eat immediately while warm.
