Buttermilk Drop Biscuit Recipe (Video)

Here at GRIT Magazine we love simple, homemade recipes that use farm-fresh ingredients like buttermilk. Buttermilk adds a rich tang and soft texture to baked favorites like pancakes and biscuits, but it can also be utilized for its acidity and versatility in a wide variety of homemade recipes. Whether you are churning your own butter or preparing grab-and-go breakfasts for the long week ahead, GRIT’s own Kellsey Trimble will walk you through every simple step.

Fresh Buttermilk Drop Biscuits are a delicious and surprisingly easy homemade staple. This recipe takes only a few steps and just five ingredients.


3 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp salt

4 Tbsp cold butter (cut in with pastry blender or fork)

1 cup buttermilk


1. Combine dry ingredients with butter until you have fine crumbles

2. Add buttermilk, using wooden spoon or your hands and mix until dough is sticky and well-combined. If the dough is too dry, add more buttermilk.

3. Drop ¼ cup biscuits onto a buttered cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

4. Enjoy!
