Best Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

I have tried so many recipes for buttermilk biscuits, and finally found one that I love. They are so easy to make, and I often just whip them up quickly when I want to have some biscuits.

So the other day I made a video showing how I make my favorite buttermilk biscuit recipe. I uploaded it to my new YouTube channel. You can watch it below and make sure to subscribe if you want to see more cooking videos. The recipe is below the video. Note: In this video I only make half the recipe.

Buttermilk Biscuit Recipe

Yield: 10-12


  • 2 cups flour
  • 1?4 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tblsp. baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 6 tblsp. salted butter
  • 1 cup buttermilk (or less)


  1. Preheat oven to 232°C/450°F.
  2. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl, whisk. Then, cut the butter into chunks and mix with dry ingredients until it resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Next, add just enough buttermilk to form a dough (You might not use all the buttermilk). 
  4. Then, turn the dough out onto a floured board and gently pat dough until it's about 1/2" thick. Do not use a rolling pin. Fold the dough about 2 - 3 times, and gently press the dough down until it is about 1 inches thick.
  5. Use a round cutter to cut into rounds. Then, place the biscuits on a baking tray. Note: If you place the biscuits close together (touching each other) they will rise more in the oven. 
  6. Bake for about 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.


Tip 1: To make drop biscuits, use all of the buttermilk. It will make a wet dough. Simply spoon balls of dough, a few inches apart, onto a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown.

Tip 2: To make buttermilk, put 1 tblsp. vinegar or lemon juice in a 1 cup measuring cup and fill the rest of the cup with milk. Let stand for about 5 minutes before using.

Tip 3: The biscuits rise even more if the dough is not too dry. So it's best to dust a slightly wet dough in flour before you cut out the biscuits.

Apple Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

Last weekend I decided to try a new recipe. I had some leftover apples and wanted to make a dessert that might go good with coffee or tea on the side. So I searched online and found a recipe that sounded good, and I was right! These muffins are exactly what I wanted and turned out so delicious.

Apple Cinnamon Muffin

The cake is really moist and light with chunks of apples, cinnamon, sugar, and vanilla. I will definitely be making this recipe again. :o) If you want to try it out yourself, I will write the recipe below. The recipe makes 12 muffins.


I hope you like these muffins as much as I did. The original recipe uses a different ratio for the cinnamon/sugar topping, and the steps might be written slightly different. I re-wrote the recipe to how I made these muffins and I also added some tips. Enjoy! :o)
Apple Cinnamon Muffin Recipe

Yield: 12


    For the muffin batter
  • 2 cups flour (+ 2 tsp. for coating apples)
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 tsp. ground cinnamon (+ 1/2 tsp. for coating apples)
  • 2 cups diced apples (about 2 - 2.5 apples)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract or vanilla sugar
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • For the topping
  • 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tbsp ground cinnamon


  1. Preheat oven to 375F/190 C. Place cupcake wrappers in muffin tin or spray tin with baking spray
  2. Sift or whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and cinnamon in a medium bowl. Set aside. Note: If using vanilla sugar also add it to the flour mixture.
  3. Dice apples, and in a separate bowl toss apples together with 2 tsp. of flour, and 1/2 tsp. cinnamon. Set aside.
  4. In a large bowl, cream together softened butter and sugar until lightened in color, about 3 minutes. Add an egg, one at a time, taking care to fully incorporate before adding the other. Mix in vanilla (if using vanilla extract). Tip: If butter is not softened you can grate it and then mix with sugar.
  5. Gently fold in flour mixture, alternating with milk just until combined. Then, fold in diced apples.
  6. Scoop mixture into prepared muffin tin, filling about 2/3 to 3/4 full.
  7. Bake until a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean, about 30 minutes.
  8. Prepare topping for muffins while the muffins are baking by melting the butter and allowing it to cool slightly. Then, mix together granulated sugar and cinnamon in a separate bowl and set aside.
  9. Once muffins have baked, remove from the oven and allow to cool slightly in the muffin tin. Then remove each muffin, brush each muffin top with butter, and then dip the top in the cinnamon/sugar mixture, one by one.
  10. Place onto a plate to finish cooling.
