  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter unsalted, melted


  • Preheat your oven to 400 F degrees.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt. Add the buttermilk and mix just until a moist dough is formed. The dough will be sticky.
  • Pour the melted butter into an 8x8-inch baking dish. Place the dough on top of the melted butter and spread it evenly across the pan, using a spatula.
  • Cut the dough into 9 equal squares. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
  • Run a knife throught he biscuits again if needed to pull them out.


  1. Store your biscuits in an airtight container or large freezer bag. They'll be good for 1-2 days at room temperature or 1 week in the fridge. If you store them in the fridge, feel free to put them in the microwave for a few seconds to warm and soften them up.
  2. These are great for freezing! They'll last 2-3 months frozen. Let them full cool down to room temperature before freezing them. You can wrap each one individually with plastic wrap, then place them in a large freezer bag to ensure they stay as fresh as possible.
