7 Up Biscuits that are Super quick and easy to whip up
If you are in need of an easy bread recipe, making biscuits is a great option. Biscuits are great for adding on the side of any meal, having for breakfast with eggs or with jam, or just as a simple snack with some butter on them. Since they have no yeast in them, they are also extremely quick to make as well. Of course, there are plenty of refrigerated biscuits out there, but they are also very easy to make from scratch. You can even make your own refrigerated biscuits dough and have it ready whenever you need to make some fresh biscuits. These biscuits are called 7up biscuits which may sound strange, but it's because they actually have 7up or Sprite in them. Karly from Buns In My Oven shares that they are the best copy recipe for KFC biscuits. A biscuit in North America like the ones here in this recipe are different from what are considered biscuits in Europe. In North America biscuits are more like bread or rolls with a firm outer crust and a soft, bread-like inside. These biscuits are made using baking powder or baking soda as a leavening agent instead of yeast and are more like a scone to Europeans. In Europe, a biscuit would refer to a hard, cookie type of baked good.
Biscuits, unlike bread, doesn't need time to rise since they will rise as they bake. You can't use self-rising flour for this recipe though because it won't turn out the same. Karly has a homemade Bisquick mix recipe available on her website that will work great for this recipe and other biscuit recipes. If you don't have any Sprite or 7up, you could also use ginger ale if you have that or prefer that. If the dough gets too sticky, you can add more flour as needed. These biscuits only require about 20 minutes to make which is great if you want them right away. All you need is your Bisquick baking mix whether you make it yourself or you use a store bought kind. Then, you'll need your soda, some sour cream, and butter. Also, don't leave out the butter as biscuits need fat in them. You could try substituting some coconut oil for the butter to make them healthier, but they may not turn out the same as the recipe intended. You can also make gluten-free biscuits too, but you're best to buy a proper gluten-free biscuit mix instead of taking a chance on different types of gluten-free flour.
To make these biscuits from Buns In My Oven preheat your oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Then, in a bowl mix the biscuit mix with the soda, and sour cream. Then you put some more of the biscuit mix on the counter and put the dough onto it. Then add more of the baking mix on top and start to fold that into the dough using your hands. Keep adding the biscuit mix as needed so that the dough holds together well. Get some butter and put it in a baking dish and then roll out the dough until it's about half an inch thick and cut out the biscuits and put them in the pan with the butter. Bake for up to 15 minutes, checking on them around 12 minutes to see if they are done. You want the outsides to be nice and golden brown but not too brown. You can allow them to cool for a couple of minutes and then serve warm with butter or on the side of your dinner with some gravy on them, or for breakfast along side some eggs.***
