Yep, I said it, “Beer Biscuits!” I found this recipe in a really, really old flyer for Bisquick (think 1970’s). Anyway, since I recently figured out how to make Bisquick I thought I would give this a try. It gives the biscuits a nice yeasty flavor with very little effort. The result was a nice dinner biscuit that was super easy to make.
Hubbyman really liked these biscuits…I think he liked the fact that I “forced” him to finish the half beer that I used.
Easy Beer Biscuits
2 cups Homemade Biscuit Mix
1 tbl sugar
6 oz (~1/2 bottle) beer (we used an Amber Ale, but use whatever you have on hand)
Preheat oven to 400F. Spray 12 muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray and put in oven while it’s preheating. Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl and beat for about 30 seconds until well combined.
Fill the muffin cups about 2/3 full. Bake about 15 minutes or until golden. Serve warm with butter.
Note: You can easily double this recipe to use the whole bottle/can of beer OR you could just drink the rest of the beer.
I’ve been using your “Bisquick” homemade mix for some time now – LOVE IT, but always have a few cups left over and didn’t know what to do with it. Just found this recipe and it was soooo easy! Thanks! Perfect with our Broccoli Cheddar soup tonight!

Hi there! Thank you!! The beer just gives it a nice yeast flavor without all the work! My hubby would love these!
Alcoholic biscuits …if i only knew this in school days….
So, I always wonder… does the brand/quality o fbeer make a difference in beer bread. Bud light biscuits the same as Bud Biscuits???
I don’t know about quality of beer…that would be a good experiment though. We used Fat Tire.
Yum! I’ve made the beer bread from Tastefully Simple mix, but will have to try your recipe!!
Btw, I stumbled this! Please stumble Bee Upon Lavender back.
Sounds good! Printing to save for later.
Stopping by to return the stumble.

I love easy recipes. We just never have beer in the house, which is why beer bread mixes went unmade. I wonder if you could sub a can of soda (which is what the Pampered Chef consultant told me to do with the beer bread mix.)

Oh, I also stumbled your post. Mine is at http://daybydayinourworld.com/2010/11/won’t-you-be-my-neighbor/
I don’t think soda would work the same. The beer just gives it the flavor of a yeast biscuit. Try it sometime if you ever have a beer in the house.
Becky Fuentes says
What an great, easy recipe! I’ll have to try these sometime. 🙂
Can you taste the alcohol in it?
Skye, you can’t taste the beer. It just has a yeast flavor, like you used yeast to make dinner biscuits. It’s really cool! I don’t like beer and I really liked these!
We only purchase alcohol maybe a couple of times a year, and we rarely finish a six pack or whatever we buy, so we often have an extra beer or two sitting in the fridge for a couple of months before it gets finished off. I’ll have to keep this recipe in mind for using it up 🙂
Thanks again for linking your delicious recipe up at Muffin Monday!
yummy yummy! making these tonight with some beerbatter fish 🙂
Love me some biscuits!!!! Definitely trying this out! AND I’m really excited about the homemade Bisquick! I don’t like paying the high prices for that stuff so this is great! Thank you!!
These look interesting! Thanks for sharing!
Cool! Not a big fan of beer, but I know my honey will like these!
AshleyRae….I can’t stand beer, but these were really good. The beer just gives it a nice yeast flavor without all the work! I hope you’ll give them a try.
These look fantastic and so easy to make. I wonder if you could make them with a gluten free baking mix. Will have to try it out.
