INGREDIENTS FOR 7UP BISCUITS
You will need:
- 2 cups of flour plus a little extra
- 4 teaspoons of baking powder
- 1 teaspoon of salt
- ½ cup of butter (1 stick, 113 grams), cold and cut into tablespoons
- ¾ cup of 7UP
- 2 teaspoons of white sugar
SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS
Sprite / Ginger Ale: If you don’t have 7UP on hand, you can substitute with Sprite or Ginger Ale instead.
Sour Cream: If you want to make Sour Cream 7UP Biscuits instead, use only ½ cup 7UP and add ½ sour cream.
Double This Recipe: You can double this recipe easily. You can cut extra biscuits, or just use a 9×13 inch pan and place the dough directly inside – no cutting required!
HOW TO MAKE THIS 7UP BISCUITS RECIPE
STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 450°F. Spray the bottom of a 9×9 baking dish with cooking spray.
STEP TWO: Add flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to a large mixing bowl. Whisk together.
PRO TIP: If your flour is lumpy, run it through a sifter or whisk it well before adding any liquids.
STEP THREE: Cut up your butter. Place the butter in with the flour mixture and toss to coat them in flour. Use a fork or a pastry cutter to chop the butter pieces until they are about the size of peas.
STEP FOUR: Place the flour mixture in the freezer for 5 to 10 minutes to cool the butter back down. This is the secret to making your biscuits nice and flaky!
STEP FIVE: Add 7UP to the biscuit mix and stir together until it forms a dough ball.
PRO TIP: If you’re adding in sour cream, mix the sour cream and 7UP together and add them all at once.
STEP SIX: When the dough is mixed, pour it out onto a lightly floured cutting board or counter. Use a rolling pin to lightly roll the dough into a 9×9 square. It should be about ¾ inch thick.
STEP SEVEN: Use a biscuit cutter, pizza cutter, or knife to cut the square into 9 biscuits. Make a tic-tac-toe pattern!
STEP EIGHT: Place in the prepared pan with the edges of each biscuit touching. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove from oven and set on a cooling rack to cool a bit before eating.
PRO TIP: If you don’t want to cut the biscuits, you can bake this as one solid loaf and just cut it apart after. Just use a slightly smaller pan – 8×8 will work great.
IN THE FRIDGE: After allowing the biscuits to cool, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
IN THE FREEZER: If you want to freeze them for later, wrap them tightly in plastic wrap or foil to prevent loss of flavor or drying out. They will last up to 2 to 3 months.
Slather these biscuits with honey or jam, or dip in gravy or stew! They’re buttery, flaky, moist, and delicious – everything you’re looking for in a biscuit, but with way less hassle!
If you don’t have 7Up on hand, you can substitute it with Sprite or ginger ale.
The biscuits are done when they have risen high and are golden brown. If you can tap on the top of them without it sinking back down, they are done.
Your biscuits may have come out flat if they were over mixed. They need only to be mixed quickly and lightly, just enough to combine the ingredients. Expired baking powder can also cause flat biscuits. While you may be able to get away with some ingredients that are slightly past their date, it really does make a difference for baking powder.
