Ingredients to make Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

  • 1 cup all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp cold unsalted butter cut into cubes
  • 1/2 cups cold buttermilk
  • 2 tbsp Heavy cream

How to make Southern Buttermilk Biscuits

  1. Preheat oven to 450F. Prepare a baking pan. Line it with aluminium foil and grease it.
  2. Combine and sieve together flour, baking powder,baking soda and salt into a mixing bowl. Add the cubed butter and mix it till the flour blends well with the butter. Add cold buttermilk intermittently and knead it into a smooth dough. Make sure that the dough is not dry.
  3. Using your hands, gently pat the dough out until it is 1/2 inch thickness. Fold the dough about 4 times and gently press the dough down to a 1 inch thick. Use a round cutter to cut into rounds.You can combine the scraps and gently knead them together to make a small biscuit.
  4. Place the biscuits on the prepared pan . Brush the top with cream and bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until lightly golden brown. Remove from the oven and brush the tops with melted butter.
  5. Serve the buttermilk biscuits hot with gravy or honey.

My Tip:

Do not use a rolling pin to roll out the dough as it overstimulates the gluten and harden the biscuits.
