There’s nothing quite like fresh bread products, but usually it takes a lot of work to make them. Food blog The Splendid Table comes to the rescue with a super simple biscuit recipe that only requires two ingredients.

What are they?

  • 2 1/4 cups commercial or homemade self-rising flour, divided
  • 1 1/4 cups pure cream, divided

If you want to add a third, you can spread some warm butter on them when you’ve finished baking at 230°C for 10-14 minutes (rotating the pan 180 degrees after six minutes). For lots of detail on this simple recipe, check out the full post over at The Splendid Table

Two-Ingredient Biscuits [The Splendid Table]

    You may have metricated the story, but they are scones, not biscuits.

  • They look like very unappetising biscuits. 2 ingredients!? Nope. That isn’t even a decent scone. The nicest, and easiest-to-make biscuits in my eyes are something based on the ANZAC recipe.

    1 1/4 cups plain flour, sifted
    1 cup rolled oats
    1/2 cup caster sugar
    3/4 cup desiccated coconut
    2 tablespoons golden syrup or treacle
    150g unsalted butter, chopped
    1/2 teaspoon bicarb soda

    Preheat oven to 170°C. Place the flour, oats, sugar and coconut in a large bowl and stir to combine. In a small saucepan place the golden syrup and butter and stir over low heat until the butter has fully melted. Mix the bicarb soda with 1 1/2 tablespoons water and add to the golden syrup mixture. It will bubble whilst you are stirring together so remove from the heat. Pour into the dry ingredients and mix together until fully combined. Roll tablespoonfuls of mixture into balls and place on baking trays lined with non stick baking paper, pressing down on the tops to flatten slightly. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden brown.


    Far, far, far better than just some flour with cream as this non-cook tries to pass off as biscuits. Laughable, simply laughable.

  • What, no gravy recipe to accompany these so-called biscuits? I prefer some butter and jam with my “SCONES”.
