Dad’s Delicious Homemade Southern Biscuits


  • 2 cups organic unbleached white flour (not whole wheat pastry flour, doesn’t work out)
  • 3 tsp. (heaping) baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/3 tsp. sea salt
  • 1 tsp. organic sugar
  • 11 Tbsp. organic butter
  • 2/3 cup organic buttermilk (or half heavy cream, half plain yogurt—I find this to be a superb substitute for buttermilk)


  • Butter
  • Honey


  1. Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  2. Cut the flour, baking powder, sea salt, and sugar with butter into pea-size pieces.

  3. Add the buttermilk and incorporate into the dough.

  4. Dump the dough onto a well-floured board. Gently roll and shape the dough to 1.5 inches thickness and cut it into biscuits.

  5. Bake for 10-12 minutes until lightly golden brown. Brush top with melted butter. Serve warm for best flavor.

  6. Serve with butter and honey— Delicious!
