Pop-up Cheddar Biscuits

Here is the easiest recipe I know. So easy, you could make a batch of these in the middle of the ocean, during a thunderstorm, on a tiny fishing boat with only the ingredients, a bowl, a spoon, and an oven. These also make a great side to *most* meals, and only take about 20 minutes in the oven.

So here we go!


1 1/2 cups flour

2 1/4 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 tsp garlic powder

1/2 tsp onion powder

3/4 cup milk

3 Tbsp sugar

1 1/2 Tbsp mayonnaise

1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese

2 Tbsp finely chopped parsley (or dried parsley)



  1. Preheat oven to 375° F.
  2. In a bowl, whisk together milk and mayonnaise. There will be a few lumps, but you don’t have to worry too much about those.
  3. Next, add all the remaining ingredients aside from the cheddar and parsley. Mix that together and you will have a nice sticky dough.
  4. At this time you can add the cheddar (I used marble cheese because that’s what I had on hand, but it’s really up to you) and parsley. Make sure the cheddar is grated using the side with the small holes, and make sure the parsley is finely chopped. Mix this all together.
  5. Drop dough into greased muffin tins, about halfway up. They will look lumpy, but I think that adds to their rustic charm. If you’re ~fancy~ you can add some extra cheese on top to make them extra special.
  6. Throw those in the oven for 18-20 minutes (or until nice and golden brown) and get ready for the cheesy goodness.
