Mixed Berry Biscuits

Weekend breakfasts are some of my favorite times of the week. Usually, I don’t eat anything different from what I eat during the week, but there is always the possibility of making a nice, comforting meal. Even though my work schedule is fairly relaxed throughout the week, Saturday and Sunday signify two days devoid of work, allowing more time to dedicate to a special breakfast.

This past weekend, I decided to skip my usual choice of Life cereal (do you know they now make a maple flavor?!) and put together a meal of biscuits and jam. And, of course, coffee was involved. But, if you know me at all, that goes without saying. I mean, look at my blog name. Case and point.

Biscuits are one of my absolute favorite foods. I worked at a camp a couple of summers ago that was situated in the mountains right above this teeny-tiny little hamlet of a town, which had this amazing hole-in-the-wall restaurant that served the best biscuits. Wednesday morning breakfasts at this camp left little to be desired, so it became a ritual with my staff to head down the mountain and feast at this place. For $4.95, I got a biscuit, coffee, eggs, and homestyle potatoes. I seriously miss that place and its prices. Ah, the good ‘ol days.

Although those biscuits were plain, these mixed berry biscuits have a similar consistency. They are flaky, soft, and perfect with sweet jam.

With a little lime juice and zest to add a hint of tartness to pair with the sweet blueberries and raspberries, these biscuits are perfectly comforting. Easy enough to make on a weekday, yet tastes like it took hours.

Mixed Berry Biscuits


  • For 6 biscuits:
  • 1 c flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 Tbsp sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp lime zest
  • 1/4 c blueberries
  • 1/4 c raspberries
  • 3/4 c heavy cream


  1. Preheat oven to 425. In a large mixing bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
  2. In a small bowl, mix blueberries, raspberries, lime juice and zest.
  3. Add the fruit mixture into the dry mixture, folding gently.
  4. Gently fold in the cream, just until mixed. The dough will look lumpy, which is ideal. If dough is overmixed, the biscuits will be tough rather than light and fluffy.
  5. Lightly flour your counter or a piece of parchment paper and gently knead the dough into a square (the biscuits should have a 1-inch thickness).
  6. Using a knife, divide the dough into 6 squares and transfer to a greased baking sheet. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown.
  7. Serve with jam and coffee.

I am partial to pretty much any kind of biscuit (cream, butter, fruit, savory, or plain), but what are your favorites? =)

    Wow! These look delicious. Personally, I’m a big fan of super buttery biscuits or some sort of savory biscuit, but I think I could be a sweet biscuit convert! Trying these this weekend =)
