Campfire Buttermilk Biscuits

Lodge Cast Iron | September 26, 2016

A camp Dutch oven is an essential tool for a hearty breakfast by the campfire. These golden buttermilk biscuits are great under gravy, topped with butter and jam or paired with a bowl of chili.

Prep Time
15-20 minutes
Cook Time
12-15 minutes
Cook it With Our


  • ½ cup butter
  • 2.5 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 beaten egg
  • ¾ cup buttermilk
  • ¼ cup club soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 5 cups Bisquick biscuit mix
  • ¼ cup melted butter (for top of biscuits)


  1. Grease and heat a Lodge Dutch Oven with 8 coals on the bottom and 17 coals on the top. 
  2. Combine all ingredients. Knead the dough by hand until smooth. Pat the dough flat to ¾ inch thickness on waxed paper and punch out biscuits with a biscuit cutter. 
  3. Place biscuits on the bottom of the hot Dutch oven and bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown. Rotate the oven and lid often to prevent burn spots. Remember, these will bake from the top down. 
  4. Remove from heat and brush golden biscuits with ¼ cup melted butter.
