Miracle Biscuits - Made With Pancake Mix



You ever have one of those nights when you have no idea what you are going to make for dinner. You look in the pantry and hope for a miracle? We call that "Miracle Dinner" - it'll be a miracle if there is dinner. Well Rebecca was having one of those nights. She finally settled on breakfast dinner - a favorite of the kids. She was feeling especially proud of herself because she had everything to make homemade biscuits - AGGHHH!!! - everything except flour!
Maybe pancake mix would work? Apparently other people have been in this same situation because there were several recipes online. She decided to try this one. They turned out so well we wanted to share them with you!


We made small biscuits and were able to make 18.

The Recipe



  • 2 1/2 - 3 cups of complete pancake mix (the recipe called for 2 1/2 cups of mix, but we found we needed 3 cups)


  • 1/3 cup of water

  • 1/4 cup melted butter

  • 1 egg


Preheat oven to 425°. Mix all the ingredients in a bowl with a spoon. Roll out dough on a floured (or in our case pancake mixed) counter. Cut out circles of dough with a floured glass or biscuit cutter.Place on an ungreased cookie sheet.


Bake for 8-10 minutes, until the tops are golden.


Dinner turned out great. The boys loved the biscuits! Jonah said he would give them 4 thumbs up! You know they're good when Jonah has to use his toe thumbs!

Pin It!

  3. Mine turned out great, and since then I have been adding things to them, garlic cheese biscuits, ham and cheese, cinnamon raison, blueberries, you can put almost anything in them, just in small pieces so they still cook properly.

  10. Delicious! I was out of butter, too, so I used same amount of canola oil (1/4 C). Everyone loved them. Will have the rest with strawberry jam for breakfast. Thanks!

  17. Mine were like crumpets but still good. Had to add a smidgen more water but I used 3 cups. Extra dough has kept my 3 year old occupied for an hour.

  19. We modified this by using gluten free pancake mix and the results were flat but delicious. Next time, I will sub club soda for the liquid.

  22. i intentionally wanted to make pancakes, but then i started craving biscuits and looked up something to alternate pancakes to biscuits. i didn't quite follow the recipe, i ran out of sugar, so pancake whould of turned out not so great, and i didn't have butter, so i used oil instead. didn't have a biscuit cutter, so i cut off the top of a water bottle, rinsed it out and used that. i also used less salt then what the recipe i was using for pancakes called for. they turned out wonderful! but they where round instead of flat, which i personally love!

  24. These came out amazing, even with just using grocery store brand "extra-fluffy" pancake mix. Really nice! A touch on the dry side for me, but I think I added a touch too much mix (I also ended up close to 3c)

  25. I used sweet potato pancake mix and they were soooo good. Dressed them up with some butter, honey, and cinnamon for dessert.

  26. tried them and they were too good..made them a the biscuits in betty crocker's mini tin pot pies...no leftovers!

  27. Oh these are fantastic. I was in the mood for something both baked and sweet but I was out of flour and sugar. Not only that my kitchen is a wreck and I didn't feel like having to clean it just to indulge a craving when spring cleaning all day tomorrow is on the agenda. So I whipped up a batch of these . To make things simpler I increased the water and made drop biscuits. Topped with butter, strawberry and blackberry jam - yum! So easy a child could do it. Not only make them but do so quickly and without creating a mess. Next time I'm going to try using dough on top of no bottom crust chicken pot pies too - that's a great idea.
