Prep Time: 20 minutes  Cook Time: 20 minutes


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 tbsp. baking powder 
  • 1 tbsp. sugar 
  • 1 tsp. salt 
  • ½ tsp. baking soda 
  • 4 tbsp. cold unsalted butter, cut into ¼-inch cubes 
  • 1 cup cold buttermilk


1. Heat oven to 450 degrees. Spray 9-inch round cake pan with nonstick cooking spray; set aside. 

2. Combine flour, baking powder, sugar, salt, and baking soda in large bowl. Mix well. Cut butter cubes into flour mixture with pastry blender until mixture resembles a course cornmeal. Add buttermilk and combine with a fork. Turn dough out on a floured surface, and work the dough into a flat rectangle, about ½” thick. Do not work the dough too much! Fold the dough over on each side to the center and press entire rectangle to about ¾ “ thick. Cut into squares or circles with a biscuit cutter, and place on a greased pan, about 1” apart. Brush biscuits with melted butter and sprinkle lightly with salt. Bake 15-20 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 2 minutes and serve.
