7 UP BISCUITS
I’ve already shared my other favorite easy biscuit recipe and it has the same basic ingredient as this one. I definitely encourage you to try making Bisquick Biscuits.
If you’re wondering how these two recipes are different, this 7 Up Biscuit Recipe requires a few more ingredients and you get a moist and super fluffy biscuit. Most of the time they don’t rise as tall as when I make Bisquick biscuits with milk, but they’re both simple recipes that make delicious biscuits.
If I have the ingredients on hand, I love making these 7 Up biscuits with Bisquick.
BISQUICK SOUR CREAM BISCUITS
To make these easy biscuits you will need this short list of ingredients, including:
- 7 Up (or Sprite or any lemon-lime soda)
- Full fat sour cream
The exact measurements for these ingredients can be found in the recipe card at the bottom of the post.
This recipe makes 6 biscuits and takes about 25 minutes from prep to finish.
To get started, heat your oven to 450°F.
Melt the butter and then pour in into a 7×11 baking dish.
In a medium bowl, mix together the Bisquick, sour cream, and 7 Up until combined together into a soft dough.
Sprinkle some additional Bisquick or flour on a flat surface. Knead the biscuit dough a few times until it’s not sticky anymore.
Roll or press the dough out until it’s about ½ inch thick. Use a biscuit cutter or round cookie cutter to cut out the biscuits.
Place the biscuits in the melted butter in the dish and bake for 12 to 15 minutes or until they are golden brown.
Remove from the oven and place biscuits on a cooling rack for a few minutes. Serve warm as a side dish or with your favorite toppings.
CAN I SUBSTITUTE SPRITE FOR 7 UP?
Absolutely, you can use any lemon-lime soda for this recipe. I’ve also seen people make 7 Up Biscuits using sodas like Mountain Dew and Ginger Ale!
The one thing you want to make sure is that you use some type of soda when you’re making these biscuits.
WHAT DOES 7 UP DO IN BAKING?
You don’t want to forget to add the 7 Up or soda because the carbonation in the soda is what helps lift these biscuits up.
WAYS TO EAT BISCUITS
You can top flaky homemade biscuits with butter and they’re delicious, but there are a ton of other delicious ways to top your biscuits.
- Jelly or jam
- Apple butter
- Peanut butter
- Sausage Gravy
- Fried chicken or chicken tenders
- Pimento cheese
- Everything But the Bagel seasoning (if you want to use this, I recommend sprinkling it on the biscuit dough before baking them)
These also work great for breakfast sandwiches and really any kind of sandwich you enjoy on a biscuit!
They also pair well with soups and stews for a hearty meal. If you’re looking for something a little different for your Thanksgiving, Christmas, or Easter meal, add these on the side and your whole family will be thankful!
