7Up® Buttermilk Biscuits

Incredibly simple yet outrageously tasty; sour cream makes them super moist and tender. Reminiscent of the original Kentucky Fried Chicken® biscuits, but much better! Great with all kinds of meals but they make an especially fantastic biscuits and gravy breakfast (or lunch or dinner).

Original recipe makes 15 biscuits


1/4 cup butter, melted
5 cups all-purpose buttermilk baking mix
1 cup lemon-lime soda (such as 7Up®)
1 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees F (220 degrees C). Spread melted butter all over a 9×13-inch baking dish.
  2. Stir baking mix, lemon-lime soda, sour cream, and softened butter together in a bowl until dough is well-mixed; knead with your hands, adding more baking mix as necessary, until dough is smooth but still sticky.
  3. Roll dough into 15 equal-size balls and place dough balls in prepared baking dish, turning to coat each completely in melted butter.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until biscuits are golden brown, 15 to 20 minutes. Let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
