Biscuits are a great accompaniment to many breakfast dishes as well as saucy dinner dishes and stews. This recipe is very simple and the biscuits are in the oven in no time leaving you free to get ready while they bake.
  • ½ cup butter
  • 2½ cups Self Rising Flour
  • 1½ tablespoons sugar
  • 1¾ cup buttermilk
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Melt butter in the bottom of a 8X8 or 9X9 inch baking pan. You can do this by sticking it into the oven for a couple of minutes while you mix up the batter.
  3. Mix together the flour, sugar, and buttermilk, stirring until it forms a sticky batter or wet dough..
  4. Pour the batter into the baking dish containing the melted butter.
  5. Using a spatula or your fingers, spread the dough evenly to the edges of the pan. It will stick to your fingers or the spatula. This can be resolved by dipping the spatula into some of the melted butter and putting it on top of the dough or by lightly oiling your fingers. DO NOT STICK YOUR FINGERS IN THE HOT MELTED BUTTER! YOU WILL BE BURNED.
  6. Once the dough has been spread out, using a knife, carefully cut the dough into nine pieces. Think of drawing a tic tac toe board through the dough.
  7. The butter will run up through these cuts.
  8. Place pan full of biscuits into the 425 degree oven.
  9. Bake for 20 - 25 minutes or until they are light golden brown.
