Making Sour Cream Biscuits or Bisquick Biscuits recipe is easy, so easy in fact that it only takes 4 ingredients. These 7 up biscuits will be the softest, moistest, and best biscuits you’ve tasted. Served up with your favorite fresh jam and you have an afternoon treat that everyone will come back for more.

Sour Cream Biscuits

Okay, I know what you are thinking. “My Biscuits are always dry and hard, HELP!” I’ve got you!

This recipe is for you. Making this 7 Up Biscuit Recipe is a recipe I start my kids with because there are very few measurements and it’s not difficult. Plus it’s fail proof.

Biscuit Recipe No Milk

Making Homemade Biscuits without Milk is so easy with this recipe. Sprite / 7-up / Lemon Lime Soda is all the liquid you will need. Substitute Coconut Milk for Sour Cream to make this recipe truly Dairy Free. I do recommend cutting the portion to 1/2 cup or adding additional flour.

As Biscuit recipe no milk alternative these are light, fluffy, and insanely delicious. They are perfect served with breakfast with fresh jam or as a side with dinner.

I’ve said so many times that this recipe reminds me of my Grandma. Who doesn’t love going to Grandma’s house to find the smell of fresh baked bread or cookies? Am I right? Speaking of Grandma’s favorites, try these soft and chewy Snickerdoodle Cookies or better yet, my favorite Cinnamon Roll Recipe.

Now, let me help you make your own PERFECT Sour Cream Easy Biscuits. You will need a large bowl to mix the ingredients in and a spoon. I prefer a serving spoon. The recipe calls for Lemon Lime soda, you may choose to add Sprite or 7-Up. You can even use Ginger-ale if you prefer.

Bisquick Biscuits Ingredients

  • Bisquick Mix Baking Mix
  • Lemon Lime Soda
  • Sour Cream
  • Butter

How to make Sour Cream Swimming in Butter Biscuits

  1. Preheat Oven to 425 degrees
  2. Cut butter into 6-8 slices and place in a 9×13 baking dish or a quarter cookie baking sheet. You and either microwave the butter for 30-60 seconds to melt butter or toss the pan into the heating oven. Just make sure to watch it so the butter does not burn.
  3. In a large mixing bowl measure out 4 cups Bisquick biscuit mix dry ingredient
  4. Add 1 cup Sour Cream. I find it easiest to measure out the sour cream and then dollop small spoonfuls into the Bisquick. This helps with evenly distributing the sour cream.
  5. Add 1 cup Lemon Lime Soda. I prefer Sprite because of the flavor but choose what you wish.
  6. With a large spoon, stir the mixture. Stir until all ingredients are combined. Dough will be very sticky and might seem clumpy too. It’s PERFECT.
  7. Sprinkle about 1/4 cup flour on clean surface and place dough on top of the floured surface.
  8. Using your hands and fingers “Pat” out the dough. Sprinkle additional flour on top will help if the dough is too sticky.
  9. Pat dough to 1 inch thick
  10. Use a Circle Cutter / biscuit cutter and cut out biscuits. You can also use a knife and cut into squares. They all taste the same.
  11. Place biscuits into 9×13 pan and bake until golden brown. I typically can get 15-18 biscuits depending on size.
  12. Bake at 425 for 12-15 minutes for melt in your mouth Bisquick Sour Cream Biscuits
  13. TIP – instead of patting out the dough, make Bisquick Drop Biscuits. Cooking time stays the same.

  • Make your own Bisquick by mixing a few simple ingredients
  • Canned Soda Pop, Choose 7-up, Sprite, Ginger-ale and even diet or zero calorie soda

Fun Fact

Small bite-sized sandwiches get eaten 100% more often because they are small! Okay, I made that up. But who doesn’t love a small bite-sized sandwich, you know you want one.

These Sprite Biscuits, or Butter Swim Biscuits make GREAT little Sandwiches. Which makes this a perfect lunch bread to send the kids to school with. They are light and moist.

Bisquick as an ingredient is timeless, some might call this recipe Vintage Bisquick recipes. You know the recipes often found on the side of the box. They are comfort foods for a reason.

Can I use a hand mixer to mix ingredients?

I would say No, please don’t. Biscuits are delicate and need to be mixed by hand for best results.

Butter, Jam, Cheese, or even plain! Sour Cream Biscuits are perfect with so many things.
