Easy Homemade Southern Buttermilk Biscuits Recipe

Hello Dolls,

A basket of warm & soft homemade biscuits on the dining table is the perfect way to start of my morning. It’s also a warm & welcoming treat, that will impress the family during breakfast get-togethers & gatherings. Be sure to watch my Slow Living Homemaking Vlog for a demonstration of how I make these heartwarming, crowd-pleasing biscuits. WATCH: How to Make HOMEMADE SOUTHERN BUTTERMILK BISCUITS!

This is originally a recipe from ‘The Magnolia Table’ by Joanna Gaines, but I’ve tweaked the recipe to suit my fancy.


20mins (plus at least 30 minutes chilling)





if you can wait that long ;)

5 cups of self-rising flour

3 sticks of salted butter (3/4 cups)

2 tablespoons baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 tablespoon of salt

2 large eggs (plus 1 large egg for brushing 1 1 1/2 cups of buttermilk

  1. Whisk the flour, baking powder and baking soda together in a large bowl. Then cut & add the butter into the large bowl. Mix together until the butter pieces are even and well combined with the flour mixture.

  2. Add the beaten eggs into the mixture until combined. Stir in buttermilk which should create a sticky dough mass. (Add in 1 tbsp at a time if dough mass is too dry) Cover the large bowl & refrigerate for at least 30 minutes & up to overnight.

  3. Preheat oven to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

  4. Flour your work surface & flour your hands before working with the sticky dough. (Be sure to have a wide countertop space)

  5. Place & flatten dough on floured work surface. Use a floured 2 1/4-inch round cutter (or a floured plastic cup) to cut about 20 biscuits.

  6. Place the biscuits on the lined baking sheet, arranging them to touch.

  7. Take a small dish and add 1 tablespoon of buttermilk and the remaining egg. Brush this mixture on top of the biscuits.

  8. Bake until golden brown for about 15-20 minutes.

et voila!

Delicious homemade southern buttermilk biscuits to grace your dining table.

It was so surprisingly easy to bake! One time I used a bowl to mix the ingredients & a different time I used my ninja blender on the dough setting. Either way it’s a fairly simple bake. Im sure the family will enjoy 😉🥰
