Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe

Pin It
Who doesn't love a quick, easy, and delicious side dish.  Everyone in my little family has love for these biscuits.  I love them with a bit of butter, jam, or honey.  The compliment soups and pretty much anything..and they come together in a quick way.  I got the recipe from my sister who is a bit fancy and makes some amazing things.  She inspires me to be better and to reach for the stars with my cooking.  She got the recipe from America's Test kitchen.

You will need Whole Wheat Flour, Baking Soda, Salt, Butter, Buttermilk (these are also amazing with the vinegar/milk substitute), Baking Powder, and Sugar.

Melt the Butter and let it cool a bit.  Also measure out your cold Buttermilk.

Combine the two and mix together. 

You will get a really odd looking and lumpy mixture.

Combine your Dry ingredients.

Then add the Butter/Buttermilk mixture.

Mix until just combined.

I make my biscuits on the large side about 1/4 cup each..I just use a spoon and put a heaping amount of dough on it and then put it on my parchment lined baking sheet.  Bake at 475 degrees for 12-13 minutes.

Look at how golden brown and yummy these turn out!

Melt 2 TBSP of Butter and using your pastry brush spread a bit of butter on top of each biscuit.


Biscuits Recipe

1 Stick (1/2 C) Butter melted
1 C cold Buttermilk
2 C Whole Wheat Flour
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
3/4 tsp Salt
2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Sugar
2 additional TBSP melted Butter for brushing.

Melt the stick of Butter and allow to cool just a little.  Then add to the cold Buttermilk and mix until it becomes a lumpy mixture.

Combine all the dry ingredients really well.  Add in the butter/ buttermilk mixture and mix until just combined.  On a parchment lined baking sheet lump together about 1/4 cup of dough.

Bake 475 Degrees for 12-13 minutes.  When done cooking move to a wire rack to cool about 5 minutes.

Melt an additional 2 TBSP of Butter and brush the tops of the biscuits.
