2 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
4 teaspoons sugar

How to make Butter Swim Biscuits

Step 1: Prepare the oven. Preheat it to 450 degrees.

Step 2: In a medium-sized bowl, place all the dry ingredients (all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar). Mix well until blended.

Step 3: To the dry ingredients, add the buttermilk. Mix well until you have a moist dough.

Step 4: In a microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter. Into an 8 x 8-inch or 9 x 9-inch baking dish, pour the melted butter. Note to use a not too small or shallow pan to prevent the butter from dripping out of the pan.

Step 5: Over the melted butter, place the dough and evenly spread it across the pan using a spatula until the dough touches the side.

Step 6: Into 9 even squares, cut the unbaked dough. Place in the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

Step 7: Remove from the oven when done. Enjoy these butter swim biscuits for breakfast, lunch, or dinner.
