What’s Cooking ~ Cloud Biscuit Recipe

These biscuits are a simple but delicious family favourite, and versatile for any meal and any season.

Add some warm butter and homemade jam for a breakfast treat or serve with Sunday supper. For an added twist, try adding shredded cheese, raisins or dried cranberries for a little something different.

Servings: 24 (cut recipe in half to make 12)

You will need: measuring spoons, measuring cups, small mixing bowl, baking sheet


  • 5 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 ¼ cup margarine or butter softened to room temperature
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 2/3 cup milk
  • 3 1/3 tbsp baking powder


  1. Sift dry ingredients together; cut in butter or margarine until mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  2. Combine eggs and milk in a separate bowl; add to flour mixture all at once. Stir until dough pulls away from the side of the bowl.
  3. Turn out on lightly floured surface; knead gently with heel of your hand, about 20 strokes. Roll dough to ¾ – 1-inch thickness. Dip 2-inch biscuit/cookie cutter in flour; cut straight down through the dough.
  4. Place on an un-greased baking sheet, 3/4 inch apart for crusty biscuits or close together for soft sides. If desired, chill for 1-3 hours.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees F for 10-14 minutes, or until golden brown.
