We love using our cast iron skillet for many recipes such as this Cast Iron Queso, Cast Iron Steak recipe and Cast Iron Brownies. Cooking biscuits in the skillet gives them the best crispy edges while remaining soft on the inside.

Cooking the biscuits on the grill gives them the best flavor and one of our favorite grilled sides. You may even like this Canned Biscuits on Blackstone Recipe.

How to Make Biscuits in a Cast Iron Skillet

  • Step 1 – Preheat the grill to medium heat.
  • Step 2 – Lightly grease a 10” cast iron skillet with cooking spray or brush it with a thin layer of oil.
Combining the dry ingredients together in a bowl

Step 3 – In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, and salt.

Adding in the butter to the flour mixture

Step 4 – Mix the cold, diced butter with the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate the butter into the flour until the mixture takes on a coarse, crumbly texture.

Pouring in the buttermilk to the flour mixture

Step 5 – Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the buttermilk and honey (if using). Stir the mixture until the dough just comes together. Be careful not to over mix.

Shaping the door on a floured surface

Step 6 – Turn the dough onto a lightly floured surface. Gently fold and pat the dough a few times, then shape it into a 1-inch thick round.

Cutting the dough with biscuits with biscuit cutter

Step 7 – Use a biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits. Re-form the dough scraps to cut out additional biscuits until all the dough is used.

Placing the cut biscuit in the cast iron skillet

Step 8 – Carefully place the biscuits in the preheated and greased cast iron pan, leaving some space between each.

  • Step 9 – Cover the grill and cook the biscuits for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown and cooked through. You can rotate the skillet occasionally to ensure even cooking.
  • Step 10 – Once the biscuits are done, remove the skillet from the grill and let the biscuits cool for a few minutes before serving.

Recipe Tips

  • Combining the Ingredients – When making the biscuit dough, handle it as minimally as possible to prevent the butter from melting too much. This can affect the flakiness of the biscuits.
  • Top with melted butter – To achieve a more golden top, you can brush the biscuits with melted butter before placing the skillet on the grill.
  • Cold butter – When adding in the cold butter use a cheese grater or a pastry blender.

Serving Suggestions

We love to serve these biscuits with jam but they are even better topped with sausage gravy. We have even served them with honey butter and fried eggs.

No matter how these cast iron skillet biscuits are served, they are always the first to go.
