Kentucky Biscuits

by 247tasty

I’m a little skeptical at first about this recipe. I mean I love biscuits but not plain biscuits. I always go for chocolate, caramel, or peanut butter cookies (my favorites!). But because I am trying to diverse my food choices I went to try it. And boy I was so wrong! This recipe for a Kentucky Biscuits is an absolute wonder. Good thing I gave it try because I love it! These biscuits are amazingly fluffy, savory, with a little sweetness that you can taste in every bite, and it is moist. I think this is an excellent base recipe for plain biscuits but you are welcome to try and pipe some butter, jam, or honey on it. What I love most about this recipe aside from this is way easy to make but it tastes exactly like Kentucky Fried Chicken’s biscuits!


2 cups of all-purpose flour
2 ½ teaspoons of baking powder
½ teaspoon of baking soda
1 dash salt
1 tablespoon of white sugar
½ cup of butter
¾ cup of buttermilk

How to make Kentucky Biscuits

Step 1: Prepare the oven by preheating it to 400 degrees F or 200 degrees C.

Step 2: Place the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a bowl. Mix until incorporated. Then, cut half of the butter into the mixture and mix until it resembles coarse crumbs. Pour in the buttermilk and mix.

Step 3: Knead the dough in a floured surface for 2 minutes and place into an ungreased baking sheet. Roll the dough into a 6 x 6-inch square, then, cut it into 12 equal sections. Make sure to not separate the pieces.

Step 4: Place inside the preheated oven and bake for about 15 minutes. Insert a toothpick in the middle of the square, when it comes out clean it is done. Remove from the oven and separate into biscuits. Best serve hot. Enjoy!
