Easiest Buttermilk Biscuits

easiest buttermilk biscuits with only 3 ingredients

Do you go through food phases in your house? We do, and we are smack in the middle of a buttermilk biscuit phase. And it’s not a bad thing, oh no! It’s pretty darn delicious. I really like having some kind of bread product with most of our dinners. I think it rounds out the meal really nicely, and I’m positive that everyone in my family will eat it, even the picky eaters. These super simple, from-scratch buttermilk biscuits have been on repeat lately, popping up when we have chicken or pork chops or scrambled eggs. They’re great for weekend breakfasts too, smothered in sausage gravy or butter and homemade blackberry jam. We’ve made them three times in the past week alone and trust me, no one’s complaining!

I’ve had a go-to biscuit recipe for a few years now, but thanks to King Arthur Flour’s self-rising flour, my super quick go-to recipe has gotten even better. These are officially the easiest buttermilk biscuits in the world. They have only three ingredients and take about five minutes to prepare. Want to know the secret? Keep reading…

Easiest Buttermilk Biscuits
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: breakfast
Serves: 8 biscuits
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 6 Tablespoons butter, cold and cut into chunks
  • ½-3/4 cup cold buttermilk
  1. Preheat the oven to 425°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. Put the self-rising flour and butter into the bowl of a food processor. Put on the lid and pulse until the mixture is sandy, about 10 times. Add ½ cup buttermilk and continue pulsing until the mixture comes together in a ball. Add more buttermilk as necessary.
  3. On a well-floured counter, roll the dough out to a thickness of ¾". Use a round biscuit cutter or cookie cutter to cut out biscuits. Re-roll the dough scraps as necessary. Place the biscuits on the baking sheet so that they are just barely touching. I usually do two rows of four or three rows of three, depending on how many biscuits I was able to cut out.
  4. Bake for 15-18 minutes until tall and golden. Eat warm.

  1. I love biscuits. I just got a wild Alaskan sourdough starter from a friend and I am baking with it like crazy. I’m going to make buttermilk biscuits with it. Things made with sourdough are healthier for you (it lowers the glycemic index of the food) so I don’t feel so bad eating all those carbs. 😉

  2. Melissa, please indicate if this recipe calls for real buttermilk or milk as the ingredient calls for milk and the name of the recipe is buttermilk biscuits?

  3. Thanks for the correction , Lulu, I like buttermilk best, sometimes grandmother Sophia would add shredded cheddar cheese to the recipe . Thank you

  4. I have no luck at making home made biscuits, I’m not very good but would like to try making these. I have never hear of your brand of Flour.
