Biscuits swimming in butter? Yes, you’re welcome.
Stop shaming me about my food choices! I could eat one of these buttery biscuits every day for breakfast, lunch and dinner if it weren’t for things like health and fitness getting in my way. You wouldn’t believe how good they are with a little jam or jelly spread over top; I probably look like some kind of wild creature scarfing them down.
MAJOR BONUS: This recipe is surprisingly quick and easy to make, and with the exception of the buttermilk, it has simple ingredients that you probably already have on hand.
These biscuits are super moist and soft on the inside with a flaky, buttery crust.
First, combine the dry ingredients in a bowl.
Next, add the buttermilk and mix until a moist dough is formed.
Melt the stick of butter in a microwave safe bowl, and then pour it into your baking dish.
Place the dough right on top. Yep, just plop it in there. Use a spatula to evenly flatten and spread the dough until it touches the sides of the pan.
Cut the unbaked, butter-drenched dough into 9 even pieces.
Bake in your oven at 450 degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the top is a nice golden brown color. This part is exciting because the butter will still be sizzling!
The butter will continue to sizzle for a few minutes until it is eventually absorbed into these heavenly squares of amazing, amazing carbs.
Enjoy warm with jelly, honey or even gravy! They are phenomenal for breakfast or as a side to complement just about any meal.
This quick and easy homemade biscuit recipe is TO DIE FOR! The butter makes these biscuits soft and moist on the inside, with a flaky crust on the outside. Add a little jam or gravy, and you've got heaven.
- 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 stick butter
- 4 tsp baking powder
- 4 tsp sugar
- 2 tsp salt
Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
Combine all of the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl.
Next, add the buttermilk and mix all of the ingredients together until a moist dough is formed.
Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl, and then pour it into an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish (make sure that your pan is not too small or shallow so that the butter doesn't drip out of the pan while it's baking).
Place the dough right on top of the melted butter and use a spatula to spread it evenly across the pan until it touches the sides.
Cut the unbaked dough (it should be swimming in butter at this point) into 9 evenish squares.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden brown on top.
Enjoy for breakfast, lunch or dinner! These biscuits are the perfect companion to any meal. I prefer to eat them with raspberry jam. 🙂
