Emergency Biscuits (Super Easy, No Milk, No butter)

Hey, there! Today I want to share with you an easy recipe that I just came up with last week after I went to the supermarket to buy some bread (my son’s favorite) but I didn’t find it (insert disappointment face here) so I told my son, we were going home to make some bread… He was so excited and I was so ready to make some biscuits but then I realized I didn’t have butter! Arrgggg! But I decided to continue with my plans so, I took a bowl, added a cup of flour, a little bit of salt, oil and water. Mixed and dumped into the oven at 220ºC (450ºF aprox) for 10 minutes hoping that this mix would be edible, and this is how the emergency no milk no butter biscuits were born.

For my surprise, they were edible! And moist! And soft on the inside but still with a bit of that dry texture on the outside!. For me, giving the emergency, they were actually pretty decent, but I still needed “to make sure” so, while my son was eating, I couldn’t resist the urge and made another batch. In the upcoming days I made these babies at least every other day, to make sure the results were consistent, and, well; now recipe is here it is for you to enjoy.

This recipe is extremely easy, and you can mix it up in under 2 minutes (wohoo!) and cook in exactly 10 minutes.


Yields: 8 Biscuits
Prep. Time: 2 minutes
Cooking Time: 10 minutes.


250 gr (1 Cup) Self-Rising Flour*
110 ml (1/3 Cup) Water
70 ml (3 Tbsp.) Vegetable Oil
Pinch of Salt


Start by pre-heating your oven to 220ºC (450ºF aprox).
Add flour and salt into a container and mix well.
Add water and oil. Mix with a fork until the dough come together. Don’t need to overdo it. Stop mixing when all the flour is incorporated.
Tip the dough out onto a lightly floured work surface, flatten out with your hands and cut.
To the pre-heated oven they go for 10 minutes.
Get out of the oven and enjoy.

* If you don’t have Self-Rising Flour you can make it yourself very easily. For each 125gr of flour, add 1 ½ teaspoon Baking Powder + ¼ teaspoon of salt.

Easy right?
