I baked these in the oven, but you can certainly (and we do when camping) Make these in the Dutch oven.

Preheat oven to 450°f. In the dutch oven I usually set it up for 350, and cook longer.

3 cups flour
4 teaspoons sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 1/4" teaspoons salt
2 cups butter milk or heavy cream (when camping I use dried buttermilk and water. I think 1/3 cup of dried milk goes into 2 cups water.) Warm to 90°-95°
2 tablespoons melted butter

Mix all of your dry ingredients together (when camping I will mix everything into a 2 gallon ziplock at home and take to camp. If using dried milk then all you need to do is add the melted butter and warm water to the bag and mix).

Add warmed milk (or water if you used dried milk) and melted butter.

Mix until shaggy.

Spray Pam into dutch oven or cast iron pan

Divide into 8 equal biscuits. I use a 1/2 cup measuring cup (spray it with pam it will help keep the dough from sticking. spray after every two scoops.)

Drop into skillet or dutch oven Bake for 10-15 minutes or until cooked through and browned on top.

If you like you can add dry spices to the dry ingredients to change up the flavor.

I'm not sure when the last time was that I used any of our non-cast iron pans :emoji_thinking: I almost always am cooking in cast iron. Its all I use when camping.

2 cups butter milk or heavy cream (when camping I use dried buttermilk and water. I think 1/3 cup of dried milk goes into 2 cups water.)
...
1/3 cup dry milk powder to 1 cup water.
Plus you need a tablespoon of lemon juice per cup of milk to make buttermilk.
Backpacking use 1/4 teaspoon citric acid powder in the milk powder.
Rest for 30 minutes after adding the water.

Nice like these. We use to do fish frys in the backyard and make what we called pan bread. The difference was we didn't make it into biscuits we just filled the pan with the dough mix and had one big biscuit. Yes it was in a CI pan. When done dump it out and break off pieces.
