My family loves when I make these easy homemade biscuits – and the secret ingredient in this recipe is… 7Up!
Homemade Biscuits Recipe
I found these super delicious homemade biscuits while scrolling through Pinterest years ago, and knew my little crew would love them. I was right – they sure did!
My husband took one bite and was hooked . . . but when I asked him what the secret ingredient he replied “ummmm . . . butter?”
Well yes… definitely some butter went into these 😉 But you'd never guess that the secret ingredient is 7-Up! (It's also a cool science experiment to let your kiddos watch as the 7-Up gets all foamy while you mix!)
How to Make Biscuits
There are loads and loads of great biscuit recipes out there that will yield more traditional biscuits. One of my all time favorites is Margaret Anne's Biscuits (which are the type you'll eat with sausage gravy… YUM!)
These are a little different but still SO good. I've found these to be some of the easiest biscuits I've ever made – which makes them great for beginner chefs! And?? Only 3 ingredients go into the dough!!
**This is sooo not a great picture of the biscuits coming out of the oven – but can I just tell you the smell made up for the appearance?
prep time 15 minutes | cook time 15 minutes | serves 8 | 225 calories per serving
- 2 1/4 cups Bisquick or my Homemade Bisquick Mix
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup 7-Up
- 1/4 cup melted butter
*We actually doubled the recipe and baked them in a 9 x 13 pan – which worked perfectly for my bunch. So if you need a few more biscuits just double it up!
- Preheat oven to 450°F. Add Bisquick mix to a large mixing bowl; cut in sour cream. Pour in 7-Up and stir until it makes a soft dough.
- Use a little extra Bisquick to sprinkle onto countertop. Pat dough out and cut into biscuits. (I just use a small cup dipped in flour or Bisquick to easily cut biscuits.)
- Melt butter in an 8×8-inch or 9×9-inch square pan in oven. Place cut biscuits into pan and bake 12-15 minutes.
