Hey gluten-free pals! Today, we’re on a mission to redefine the iconic biscuits-in-a-can experience, minus the gluten drama. Whether you’re whipping up a comforting breakfast or craving a flaky sidekick to your meals, these gluten-free biscuits are about to become your new best friend.


The can-of-biscuits phenomenon has been a kitchen staple for decades. It’s that satisfying “pop” followed by the aroma of freshly baked goodness that makes it a classic. Our gluten-free twist ensures that everyone, gluten-sensitive or not, can enjoy these warm, buttery delights.

Ingredients for Gluten-Free Biscuits in a Can:

  • · 2 cups gluten-free all-purpose flour
  • · 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • · 1 teaspoon sugar
  • · 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • · 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • · 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • · 3/4 cup buttermilk (or dairy-free alternative)

Instructions for Gluten-Free Biscuits in a Can:

  1. Preheat the Oven: Let's get that oven roaring to 425°F (220°C). We want it nice and toasty for our biscuit adventure.
  2. Dry Team Assemble: In a big ol' bowl, whisk together the gluten-free flour, baking powder, sugar, baking soda, and salt. This is your dry team – they're ready for action.
  3. Butter Bliss: Toss in those cold and cubed butter bits into the dry team. Use your fingers or a pastry cutter to work the butter into the flour until it resembles coarse crumbs. You're going for biscuit magic here.
  4. Add the Buttermilk Love: Pour in that buttermilk, and gently stir until a soft dough forms. Don't overthink it – you want a dough that's just come together for that perfect biscuit texture.
  5. Flour Party: Sprinkle a bit of gluten-free flour on a flat surface. Turn out the dough, and give it a gentle pat and fold a few times. This is where the biscuit magic happens.
  6. Roll and Cut: Roll out the dough to about 1/2 inch thick. Grab your favorite biscuit cutter (or improvise with a glass if you're feeling rustic) and cut out those biscuit rounds.
  7. Can Action: Now, here's the fun part. Grease up that can (yes, the one you rescued from recycling) and stand your biscuits up in it. It's like a cozy little biscuit neighborhood.
  8. Bake to Golden Glory: Pop those biscuit-filled cans into the preheated oven for about 12-15 minutes or until they've reached a golden flaky perfection.
  9. Buttery Finish: Once they've danced in the oven and achieved biscuit stardom, brush the tops with a bit of melted butter because, let's face it, more butter is always a good idea.

Nutrition Advantages:

  • Gluten-free for those with celiac disease or gluten sensitivity
  • Rich in protein from the buttermilk
  • Good source of healthy fats from the butter
  • Low in sugar for a guilt-free treat

Dietary Alternatives:

  • Dairy-Free: Use a dairy-free butter alternative and dairy-free buttermilk.
  • Egg-Free: Check if your gluten-free flour blend already contains xanthan gum. If not, add 1/2 teaspoon to the dry ingredients.

Tips for Biscuit Brilliance:

  • Keep that butter cold – it’s the secret to flaky biscuits.
  • Don’t twist the biscuit cutter when cutting. A clean, straight down motion ensures proper rising.
  • Experiment with different gluten-free flour blends until you find your favorite.

And there you have it, gluten-free buddies – a biscuit-in-a-can adventure that’s flaky, buttery, and totally gluten-free. Get ready to enjoy that satisfying “pop” with a side of biscuit joy!
