Recipe Details:

  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 22 minutes
  • Total Time: 37 minutes
  • Servings: 12 biscuits


  • 2 1/2 cups All-purpose flour (for a soft, tender crumb)
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder (for perfect rise)
  • 1 tbsp Granulated sugar (optional, for a hint of sweetness)
  • 1 1/2 tsp Kosher salt (for flavor enhancement)
  • 1/2 cup Unsalted butter, melted (for rich, buttery layers)
  • 1 3/4 cups Buttermilk (for a moist, tender biscuit)


  1. Preheat Your Oven: Begin by preheating your oven to 375°F (190°C). This ensures your biscuits cook evenly.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, granulated sugar (if using), and kosher salt.
  3. Add Wet Ingredients: Pour in the melted unsalted butter and buttermilk. Gently mix until all ingredients are just combined. Avoid overmixing to ensure your biscuits are fluffy and light.
  4. Prepare the Baking Dish: Grease a 9×13 inch baking dish and pour the biscuit batter evenly into the dish.
  5. Bake to Perfection: Place the baking dish in the preheated oven and bake for 22-25 minutes, or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.
  6. Cool and Serve: Let the biscuits cool for a few minutes before slicing and serving. Enjoy the rich, buttery flavor and soft texture.

The Secrets Behind the Perfect Recipe:

  1. Quality Ingredients: Use high-quality butter and fresh buttermilk for the best flavor.
  2. Don’t Overmix: Mix the dough just until the ingredients are combined.
  3. Even Thickness: Spread the dough evenly in the baking dish for uniform biscuits.
  4. Preheated Oven: Always bake in a preheated oven for consistent results.

Serving Suggestions:

Serve these biscuits warm with honey, jam, or your favorite gravy. They’re also perfect as a side for soups and stews.
