  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 tsps baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk cold
  • 8 TBSPS melted butter cooled slightly (plus 2 more TBSPs for brushing)


  • Preheat your oven to 375 degrees and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicion mat.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt.
  • In a smaller bowl whisk the buttermilk and melted butter. It will start to clump together, as the cold buttermilk drops the temperature of the butter.
  • Stir the liquid into the dry ingredients just until it starts to pull away from the side.
  • Using a well greased 1/4 cup measure, drop just less than a quarter cup of batter onto the baking mat keeping an inch and a half between biscuits. You may have to bake in two batches.
  • Bake 12 to 14 minutes until they are golden brown
  • Once you finish baking, brush with melted butter, transfer to a cooling rack and serve warm.
