7 Up Biscuits

Hi there. First of all, I wanted to say that my heart and thoughts are with the victims, families, and friends of Newton, CT. Like most of you, I’ve had those children and their families on my mind all weekend. I’ve been loving on my kids extra hard and hope that we are all doing the same. Let’s all continue praying, thinking good thoughts, and just generally loving one another during this sad time.

It feels wrong to launch into one of my usual goofy stories about nothing, so today I will leave with you a recipe. We could all use something warm, delicious, and simple in our bellies right about now.

These biscuits are quick to whip up, extremely fluffy, and the bottom crunch makes you think they were fried in butter. Bonus: You only need four ingredients! Give them a try the next time you’re in the mood for a homemade biscuit. Slather ‘em with butter, honey, or jam and enjoy.

7 Up Biscuits

These biscuits only need 4 ingredients and are super quick and easy to whip up!

Ingredients:

2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
1/2 cup 7 Up or Sprite
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 cup butter

Directions:

Place the butter in a 9x9 baking dish and turn the oven to 425 degrees. Let the butter melt while the oven preheats.
In a medium sized bowl, stir together the baking mix, soda, and sour cream until just combined.
Generously sprinkle the counter top with baking mix and dump the dough out onto it. Sprinkle more baking mix on top of the dough as needed and pat the dough out to about 1/2 an inch thick.
Remove the pan with the melted butter from the oven and give it a swirl to evenly coat the dish. Cut the biscuits out and place them in the pan of butter.
Bake for 12-15 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through.

I've seen this recipe all over the web, including here, here, and here.

    I have heard of this phenomenon, or Coco Cola + cake mix chocolate cakes….you have me intrigued! Gotta love it when bubbles, baking, science, and biscuits all intersect!

    honey, your stories about”nothing” are lighthearted, and funny.. We could all do with that nowadays.. I live in Portland, or., and we had a loon shoot and kill two here, one girl wounded, then kill himself, Tuesday, two days prior to Newtown. This was at Clackamas Town Center mall.. Mental health is taken too lightly in this country. Were it looked at more seriously, and addressed, maybe this garbage wouldn’t be so prevalent. They are all in my prayers. And please, more funny things!!! Love to you and yours.. Happy Yule!

    I love these biscuits. They always seem a bit too sticky to cut, so I just plop them in like drop biscuits and they come out great. No one ever believes that there is 7-up in there.

    It is a pretty sticky dough! I have to use quite a bit of bisquick to cut them easily. :) I like your idea of drop biscuits though!

    I’ve seen these biscuits all over the place as well, but have been too afraid to try them. Glad to know they’re tasty. Now I’ll definitely give them a try!

    Made these for the family on Christmas night and they were a big hit. First batch, I rolled too thin and they were a little crunchy but I redeemed myself on the second batch and they were soo fluffy. Very good!!! Thanks.
