  • 1/3 cup salted butter melted and divided
  • 2 1/4 cup biscuit mix I used Bisquick
  • 1/3 cup lemon yogurt I used Noosa
  • 1 lemon (you need the juice and zest) juice and zest of the one lemon
  • 1 cup blueberries


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Pour ¼ cup of melted butter into the bottom of a cast iron skillet.
  • Mix together biscuit mix, lemon yogurt, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl. Start with 2 cups of biscuit mix and then add a 1/4 cup of biscuit mix until the dough is slightly sticky yet well-combined.
  • Dust a little flour on the blueberries then toss into the biscuit dough. Gently fold in to combine. If needed, add a bit more biscuit mix to create a firmer result.
  • Lightly flour your hands and grab a roughly tennis ball-sized ball of dough. Drop the biscuit into the cast iron. Repeat until all the dough is in the skillet.
  • Brush or drizzle the tops of the biscuits with the remaining butter.
  • Bake biscuits for 10-12 minutes. If you’d like a more golden brown color, broil for the last 2 minutes of baking. Let cool for at least 10 minutes.
  • Once cooled, serve with additional butter or top with a light glaze.


Feel free to try different flavors of yogurt like orange or vanilla to vary the recipe up.
