Do you have a hankering for a sweet breakfast treat this weekend? This super simple Blueberry Biscuit recipe might just be what you’re looking for then. Not too sweet, but with a crunch of sugar on top, the berries are the star of this light and fluffy spoon biscuit.
Not too long ago, I shared the recipe for Garlic Cheddar Biscuits that are a knockoff of a popular restaurant’s offering. In that recipe, I also gave you a recipe for homemade biscuit mix (in case you don’t keep the boxed variety in your pantry).
This recipe is a sweet version using that same biscuit mix recipe for a really delicious, berry treat for you. It’s completely adaptable to whatever fruit you wish to use, too. I used blueberries because I had some gorgeous ones on hand. I think raspberry would be awesome…or strawberry…or peach…or mango…well, you get the picture. Use whatever fruit you like!
Just make these! In less than 20 minutes you can have these hot from the oven for a perfect weekend (or anytime) breakfast treat.
- 2 cups biscuit mix (if you don't make your own, use one like Bisquick)
- 1 cup blueberries (or your favourite berry or fruit)
- ⅓ cup sugar (I used organic)
- ⅔ cup milk (I used half & half)
- About 2 tablespoons coarse sugar (like turbinado or sanding sugar)
- Preheat the oven to 450° F.
- In a medium-sized bowl, add the biscuit mix, berries, sugar and stir to combine. (This will coat the fruit in flour and make them spread out in the dough.)
- Add the milk.
- Stir with a wooden spoon until a soft dough forms.
- Continue to fold the dough with the wooden spoon for about 30 seconds (being careful to not crush the fruit).
- Take spoonfuls of the dough and place onto a parchment lined baking sheet (or a lightly greased baking sheet) – you should get 10 biscuits from this dough.
- Sprinkle the tops with the coarse sugar.
- Place the baking sheet in the preheated oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until the tops of the biscuits are golden brown.
