Butter Swim Biscuits

This recipe is one of the most visited on my website, posted back on May 26, 2014. Stir together five ingredients, pour melted butter in a pan, spread mixture in the pan with the butter, and bake. A little crisp and very buttery on the outside and fluffy tender on the inside. A super easy addition for any meal.

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 8″x8″ or 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 (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!

*This time I used a rectangle pan (7″x11″) that is comparable to the 9″x9″. Below is the picture from the first posting using a 9″x9″.
