If you’re looking to serve some warm bread on the side of any dish you could possibly be making, look no further than the recipe for this 3-Ingredient Skillet Biscuit Bread! I mostly serve this fantastically simple quick bread for breakfast.

I love to bake it fresh in the morning, especially on Sunday mornings, and serve it with butter, jam or honey. It’s such a great morning treat, and we typically enjoy this biscuit bread served on a plate along with some buttery scrambled eggs. It’s a fast, fresh breakfast and a tasty combination. However, some days I prefer to serve this old-fashioned skillet bread sliced into wedges, topped with crumbled breakfast sausage, and slathered in homemade country gravy. This has honestly become my family’s favorite way to enjoy a plate of luscious biscuits and gravy.

If a big breakfast isn’t your thing, no worries! You won’t have to miss out on giving this tasty quick bread a try because this 3-Ingredient Skillet Biscuit Bread is also perfect served up on the side with supper! Serve it next to any dish that would pair up well with a batch of homemade biscuits.

This creamy Chicken Pot Pie Bubble Up Casserole, flavorful U.S. Senate Bean Soup, comforting Ground Turkey Stroganoff, smoky Old-Fashioned Ham and Potato Chowder, classic pot roast, and brown sugar meatloaf are a few good dishes that I personally like to serve this bread with. But, it’ll work with any other comfort food classic you care to add this list!

How to make 3-Ingredient Skillet Biscuit Bread

A measure of self-rising flour, vegetable oil and milk are the three pantry-staple ingredients that are needed to whip up a fresh batch of this skillet biscuit bread. After mixing everything together in one bowl, a thick batter will form. It bakes up perfectly in 20 minutes in a greased cast iron skillet. In my opinion, it comes out of the oven looking absolutely gorgeous and ready-to-serve! A rustic-looking cast iron skillet always makes for a perfect presentation.

If the top has not browned to your liking at the 20 minute mark, simply return the skillet to the oven and allow the bread to brown under the high heat of the broiler for about two minutes. The top will be perfectly golden brown after a minute or two under the broiler!

How will you serve this quick and tasty 3-Ingredient Skillet Biscuit Bread? Happy eating, y’all! xo- M
