These are the best buttermilk biscuits with self-rising flour around! They are tender and are and full of butter and buttermilk flavor, no bland biscuits here!


Units Scale
  • 2 3/4 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1/2 cup butter + 1/4 cup melted for brushing
  • 1 tablespoon honey


  • Preheat the oven to 450 degrees 
  • Cut the butter into the flour using your hands until the butter is pea size.
  • Add in the buttermilk and honey and mix until a dough forms.
  • Turn the dough out onto a lightly dusted surface.
  • Press or roll the dough into a 1/4 inch rectangle and fold the dough onto itself in thirds. Like you would fold a sheet of paper. Press or roll the dough out to 1/4 inch again and repeat the fold. Press or roll out the dough out again to a 1/4 inch rectangle. 
  • Using a floured cutter cut out your biscuits and place them right next to each other on a lined baking sheet. Having all your biscuits touching will help them to rise.
  • Brush with melted butter. 
  • Bake for 13-15 minutes.
  • Brush with more melted butter.
