Butter Swim Biscuits

by Sheryl

This is funny but yum! Biscuits swimming in butter? Mine please! I remembered Julia Child’s famous line, “With enough butter, anything is good.”, this is so true. Everyone loves butter, or use butter in any way possible. I must admit, I find ways (always) to put a bit or too much butter in everything! It is funny, yes, but it is true. Even my husband says I am crazy over butter. A bit exaggerated but hey I love butter! The reason why I love Butter Swim Biscuits. It’s like love at first bite. A friend gave me these lovely biscuits a few years back and I tripped at how the biscuits were drenched in butter. I told myself that I gotta have the recipe. To make the story short, I have been making these delicious butter swim biscuits since. These biscuits are seriously the greatest thing ever! A no-knead, no-yeast, and no-roll biscuits but the result is surprisingly good! A no-fuss, just put in a pan recipe that will make you crazy over butter!


2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups buttermilk
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
4 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 teaspoons salt

How to make Butter Swim Biscuits

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

Step 2: Whisk the flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.

Step 3: Mix in the buttermilk until just a moist dough is formed.

Step 4: Pour the melted butter into an 8 x 8-inch baking dish.

Step 5: Put the dough over the melted butter and use a spatula to evenly spread the dough across the pan until it touches the sides.

Step 6: Slice the dough into 9 even squares.

Step 7: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.

Step 8: Once done, remove from the oven and serve. Enjoy!
