Super Flaky Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe - Thanksgiving Recipes

A biscuit in the United States and parts of Canada, and widely used in popular American English, is a small bread with a firm browned crust and a soft interior. They are made with baking powder or baking soda as a chemical leavening agent rather than yeast although they can also be made using yeast (and are then called angel biscuits) or a sourdough starter.

They are traditionally served as a side dish with a meal. As a breakfast item they are often eaten with butter and a sweet condiment such as molasses, light sugarcane syrup, maple syrup, sorghum syrup, honey, or fruit jam or jelly. With other meals they are usually eaten with butter or gravy instead of sweet condiments. However, biscuits and gravy (biscuits covered in country gravy) or biscuits with sausage are usually served for breakfast, sometimes as the main course. A biscuit may also be used to make a breakfast sandwich by slicing it in half and placing eggs and/or breakfast meat in the middle.

  1. Thanks for the yummy recipe! I am big fan of your recipes, specially egg and fish.

    One question - is there a replacement for all purpose flour? I bake a lot and always have trouble using all purpose flour as the main ingredient.

    Thanks in advance!

    1. i am not sure whether u can use some other flour. but u can try using wheat flour

  2. These look awesome! Would love to try soon. Just a quick query. Can I prepare buttermilk with half curd n half water? Also, approx how thick should the dough be when I cut them out?

    1. u can use half curd and half milk. And dont use too much liquid. the dough should be somewhat stiff

  3. Hey Aarthi ...i tried this recipe today and am very happy with the results. The biscuits were light and flaky on the outside with a soft bun like interior. Thanks a lot . Will keep trying more of your recipes. . God bless !
