A golden buttermilk biscuit recipe that's easy to make and won't fail you time after time. These biscuits are light and fluffy on the inside and make any meal or snack special.

  • Total Time: 22 minutes
  • Yield: 8 biscuits 1x


Units Scale

2 cups self-rising flour, sifted

1/3 cup butter (cold and cut into cubes) or shortening

1 cup buttermilk

butter or oil


Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Cut butter or shortening into flour in a medium bowl until it resembles cornmeal. You can pass your fingers through to press butter or shortening into the flour to make sure it's incorporated enough before adding the buttermilk.

Stir in buttermilk and mix well into a ball. Knead wet dough in some self-rising flour on your counter-top until dough is no longer sticky.

Then pinch off enough dough to form into 8 biscuits. No need to roll out and cut.

Place biscuits on a parchment lined baking pan. Put a pat of butter or a little oil on top of each biscuit and bake for 12 minutes. Serving hot out of the oven is best!
