Butter Swim Biscuits

Easiest biscuits for dinner! A little crisp and very buttery on the outside and tender on the inside. Recipe comes from simplytexas. Careful, these are dangerous, you might eat the whole pan!

Butter Swim Biscuits

Butter Swim Biscuits 2

2½ cups flour
4 tsp baking powder
4 tsp sugar
2 tsp salt
1¾ cups buttermilk
1/2 cup butter, melted

Preheat oven to 400°. Stir together flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt. Stir in buttermilk just until combined. Pour melted butter into 9″x9″. Drop biscuit batter into pan and spread out evenly. Butter will come up over the edges and cover over the top of the biscuit batter, as if it is “swimming”. Cut biscuits about half way down into batter to create the individual biscuits (3×3 or 4×4). Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden and beautiful! Cool a bit and cut through again, but all the way through to the bottom of pan. Enjoy!

    1. I have found that the amount of salt in butter varies. Maybe using unsalted butter would help? Thanks for visiting my site, hope you have a wonderful holiday season!

    1. I would certainly give it a try. I can’t think of a reason it wouldn’t work. I believe the acidity of buttermilk helps with the reaction of the baking powder, and from what I’ve read cashews and almonds have some acid content too so it would probably make a good substitute.
      Happy Baking! Thanks for visiting my site.

  1. You can add a tsp of white vinegar to 1 Cup non-dairy (or dairy) milk to approximate buttermilk’s acidity. I use this instead of buttermilk in everything, and no one has ever noticed.

    1. So true! I do that too or use 1 tsp lemon juice. Thank goodness that works, I don’t always have buttermilk. ;o)

  2. Mine came out super fluffy and yummy just a tad salty but I am going to pair it with non salted breakfast foods. For the chewy part try just folding in the buttermilk and use your hands to mix, you can tell when its mixed enough.
