Quick & Easy Buttermilk biscuits Recipe

If you have never tried this one, you definitely must! Now the story goes like this.
I didn’t start out planning to make them and I really don’t know how I ended up with these.
All I wanted to do was churn out the butter from the cream I’d collected over the week. As I went about my work after churning out the butter, the remaining whey/buttermilk kept staring at me. Not able to take it anymore, I quickly whipped up a batch of biscuits. While it was baking away, I started craving something sweet to go with it. So I grated some apples to make some homemade jam…
Well, that’s my story of churning butter and I’m sticking with it.

PS: Making this is dead simple! What if I say, you could be eating these flaky, buttery buttermilk biscuits in under 15 min! The dough takes 3 min and baking time is 10-12 min flat! You do the math.

Without further delay, here’s the recipe –

Recipe for Buttermilk biscuits:
Flour – 3.5 cups
Baking powder- 1 tbsp.
Salt – 1 tsp
Sugar – 2 tbsps.
Butter – 1/2 cup


Preheat oven at 200 °C
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar in a large bowl.
Cut cold butter into the flour until they form pea-sized chunks
Add just enough buttermilk to make a wet, sticky dough
Knead very lightly only about 6-8 times
The dough will look crumbly and ‘not’ put together but that’s okay. That’s how it should be.
Pat down the dough to one inch thickness
Cut using a round cutter
Grease the pan and bake for about 12-14 min until lightly brown at 180 Celsius

Let it Cool.
And enjoy!

These biscuits pair deliciously with some chicken gravy too. Sweet or savoury, both are top notch.

PRO TIP: Always break open the biscuits using a fork NEVER a knife. You will have more grooves to hold your butter, jam or gravy😋

PPS: Psst…I’m supposed to be working on my book. Damn you buttermilk.
