Homemade Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

To make upscale restaurant-style homemade buttermilk biscuits, follow this elevated recipe:


  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 tablespoon baking powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  4. 1 teaspoon salt
  5. 1/2 cup unsalted butter (chilled and cut into small cubes)
  6. 1 cup buttermilk (cold)
  7. 2 tablespoons melted butter (for brushing on top)


  1. Preheat Oven: Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  3. Cut in Butter: Add the chilled, cubed butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to incorporate the butter until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. Add Buttermilk: Pour in the cold buttermilk and stir until just combined. Do not overmix.
  5. Roll and Fold: Turn the dough out onto a floured surface. Gently knead and fold the dough a few times. Roll it out to about 3/4-inch thickness.
  6. Cut Biscuits: Use a round biscuit cutter to cut out biscuits from the dough. Place them close together on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  7. Brush with Butter: Brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter for a golden finish.
  8. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through.
  9. Serve: Allow the biscuits to cool slightly before serving. Serve them warm with butter or your favorite toppings.

These upscale buttermilk biscuits are sure to impress with their flakiness and buttery flavor!
