Make drop biscuits without flour! No rolling or cutting, and made with just 5 ingredients. These Pancake Mix Cheddar Drop Biscuits are easy, cheesy, and the perfect make-ahead compliment to any meal!
2 cups ‘just add water’ pancake mix
1 1/3 cup freshly shredded cheddar cheese, divided
3/4 cupmilk of choice (I used unsweetened almond milk)
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
1 teaspoongarlic powder
1/2 teaspoonfresh ground black pepper (+ more for topping)
Prep: Preheat the oven to 375F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking liner.
Make biscuits: Add the pancake mix, 1 cup of cheese (reserve 1/3 cup for topping), milk, butter, garlic powder and black pepper to a medium mixing bowl. Use a rubber spatula or wooden spoon to mix until the batter comes together. The batter should be sticky, a little shaggy and quite a bit thicker than pancake batter. Divide the bowl of batter into 12 equal piles of dough on your baking sheet using a spoon or scoop. Use your fingers to flatten the biscuits just slightly, then top with a little bit of remaining shredded cheddar cheese on each.
Bake: Bake biscuits for 12-14 minutes, or until the edges near the bottom are golden brown and the cheese on top is bubbling. The bottoms should be golden brown if you give them a peek. Let them cool for a few minutes, then enjoy warm!
Reheat: If I’m making a meal, I’ll stick room temperature premade biscuits into a warm appliance, if possible, for about 5 minutes. This includes the oven, toaster oven, and air fryer. Otherwise, to warm from room temperature, place in an oven or toaster oven and use the ‘Warm’ or “Low” setting for 5 minutes. To warm from frozen, wrap in foil and heat in an oven or toaster oven at 300F for 20 minutes, or until they’re warm and no longer frozen in the middle.
