Easy Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

2 Min Read


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1 cup buttermilk, cold


Preheat Oven:

Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C).

Prepare Baking Sheet:

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or lightly grease it to prevent sticking.


Combine Dry Ingredients:

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Add Butter:

Add the cold, cubed butter to the dry ingredients.


Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to quickly work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.

The butter should be well distributed, but some small chunks are okay and even desirable for flakiness.


Add Buttermilk:

Make a well in the center of the flour mixture and pour in the cold buttermilk.

Using a spatula or wooden spoon, gently stir until the dough just comes together.


Be careful not to overmix; you want a slightly shaggy and sticky dough.

Knead the Dough:

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface.


Gently fold the dough over itself a few times, just until it holds together.

Pat the dough into a 1-inch thick rectangle.


Cut Biscuits:

Using a floured biscuit cutter or a glass, cut out biscuits from the dough.

Place the cut biscuits on the prepared baking sheet, ensuring they are close but not touching.



Bake in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown on top.


Allow the biscuits to cool slightly before serving.


Enjoy them warm with butter, honey, jam, or your favorite toppings.

These easy buttermilk biscuits are perfect for breakfast, brunch, or as a side dish for dinner.


They’re light, fluffy, and have a delicious buttery flavor.
