  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp yeast
  • 1/4 cup warm water
  • 1 1/4 cups low-fat buttermilk


  1. Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside.
  2. Blend dry ingredients in medium size mixing bowl.
  3. Stir in milk and yeast stir just enough to make soft dough. Some flour can be added to prevent having a sticky dough but you do want a soft dough or the biscuits will be too heavy.
  4. Let rise for about 1 hours or until double in size.
  5. Punch down and knead only enough to make it possible to pat into a 1/2 thick rectangle. Use a pizza cutter to slice down the middle lengthwise and then crosswise to make 10-12 squares (or shape the old fashioned way and cut with a biscuit cutter).
  6. Place biscuits on a cookie sheet sprayed with vegetable oil spray. Bake at 425 degrees for 12-15 minutes (adjust for altitude) or until golden brown.
  7. NOTE: In a hurry? leave out the yeast. It still works but with a different texture.
