Buttermilk Biscuits: American Breakfast Dream – EAT CLUB

Today we come around the corner with an American bread recipe. You can find them everywhere in the southern states. They are served in both sweet for breakfast with jam and savory variations with burgers and sausages. A bit like our rolls. You will already understand from the photo that we have baked quite sweet buttermilk biscuits. Hot from the oven with some butter and jam… An absolute dream!

Correct oil temperature is essential for successful buttermilk biscuits. It should be soft but slightly cool. Never thaw or use at room temperature. If you can cut through the butter easily but it still remains in one piece, the temperature and therefore the consistency is perfect for baking. In addition, the dough should not be kneaded for too long. Once the ingredients are fairly well combined, fold once or twice and then roll. Then the dough rises nicely.

Buttermilk gives everything a little acidity and makes for a well-rounded taste experience. Buttermilk is a true all-rounder in American cooking anyway. For example, in buttermilk pancakes or the world-famous buttermilk chicken.

The only thing missing is the right jam for our buttermilk biscuits and the fun can begin. Of course, you can also use a purchased one here. But true food lovers also prepare it themselves. Although it is a classic apricot jam, we also have several winter-proof varieties for you.

Soft and Fluffy – American Buttermilk Biscuits


Sweet Deluxe Breakfast: American Buttermilk Biscuits.


  1. Preheat the oven to 190 degrees (fan). Mix flour with baking powder, soda, sugar and salt. Then knead the butter into the dough and gradually add the buttermilk to the dough. Do not knead, but fold. The dough does not have to be completely smooth.

  2. Leave to rest briefly and then carefully roll out to about 1.5cm thick. Then cut out circles with a cookie cutter or glass. Place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake in the oven for 10-15 minutes (depending on how brown you want them).

  3. Enjoy straight out of the oven with some jam and butter. Just heaven!
