7-Up Biscuits

Oh My! These biscuits are incredibly good and so easy to make! They are moist and fluffy and oh, so yummy. They were even good the next day. I will be making these babies on a regular basis. 7 Up Biscuits from Plain Chicken

2 cups Bisquick
1/2 cup sour cream
1/2 cup 7-up
1/4 cup melted butter

Cut sour cream into biscuit mix, add 7-Up. Makes a very soft dough.

Sprinkle additional biscuit mix on board or table and pat dough out into the same size/shape as the pan you are going to bake them in. Cut biscuts into squares.

Melt 1/4 cup butter and pour in a 9 inch square pan. Place cut biscuits in pan, they will be touching, and bake at 450 degrees until golden brown (approx 15 minutes).

Note: I usually double this recipe and bake in a 9x13 pan as shown in the picture.

Janelle - when do you cut the biscuits. I NEVER make homemade biscuits,and if I do, I just drop them. It looks like these were pre-cut before baking.

Janelle said...

Oops, I left that part out. I roll the dough out in a 9x13 rectangle and cut them in 12 pieces. Then I place them in the pan to bake. These are soooo yummy! :)

A friend sent her the picture, she didn't know where it came from. She is now referring the recipe to my blog. I got the recipe from Plain Chicken's blog. It is a popular recipe. All is well :)

Mark L. Torrey said...

Yep, the FB link I used got me here too !! I'm making these this morning !!

Dina Coutu-Smith said...

do you know the calorie intake or any of the nutritional? I run a weightloss group and would love to share this recipe
!

Mary Ann Littlejohn said...

I've made similar recipe for years using plain soda water and yogurt. A few less calories. I like that, unlike regular biscuits, they can be warmed over the next day for sausage biscuits or egg McMuffins.

Janelle said...

You can look here for the nutritional values.

They are not diet food but I am sure you can decrease the calories/fat like Mary Ann said by using club soda and yogurt or fat free sour cream. I have only made them the way I posted. Or you can just cut them smaller for smaller servings?

J.R.McDowell said...

For zero calories you could go with Sprite zero. I like the idea of the yogurt.

Lydia Grey said...

Thanks for the recipe, I don't care where it came from and don't mind anyone sharing mine.

Ramona said...

I have to try this recipe!! I already use Sprite in my Bisquick for waffles. Follow the waffle recipe on the back of the Bisquick box but use Sprite or 7Up instead of milk or water. YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!

I made these biscuits tonite with chicken alfredo. Best biscuits I've ever had and super easy to make. I hated making biscuits until doing these! Thanks!!!!!

Bev said...

For those who are glueten free there is a glueten free bisquick. I can't wait to try these for my
GF hubby.

Beverly Atchison said...

Getting ready try tomorrow for first time. I have made the kind that I have let raise for hours then bake. We shall see how I do.

SimplicityAstoundsMe said...

Although I cannot stand it to drink, I used cream soda in pancakes with fantastic results.

Beverly Atchison said...

Omg.... first time making these few minutes ago for family supper & they are the best ones ever... :) thx

Robbie Cram said...

Do you need to prepare the pan in some way?

Tia Raini said...

So I needed a quick easy biscuit recipe for a church dinner & my mother sent me this link off of FB.... these were AWESOME! I did change the recipe a bit due to ingredients I had on hand as I try to avoid using sour cream I replaced that with lemon-creme greek yogurt & the juice of one lime, Also I used seltzer water instead of 7-up as already had that on hand.. and finally I omitted the butter for browning b/c I added cheddar cheese & fresh chives as I had purchased these items before finding a recipe intent on using them as my flavoring ingredients... but all in still they were simple, quick, & came out very fluffy... I would not have known to make them with seltzer had it not been for the inspiration here... thanks for posting =)

Morgan said...

Why pat them out and cut them just to put them back in the pan touching? I'd think that if you put the butter in the pan, patted the dough out into the pan and then cut them in the pan, you'd have it done in a shorter amount of time. No muss no fuss

Lynelle Caldwell said...

It was REALLY soft & hard to get in the pan, is it ok to add extra flour?

Lynelle Caldwell said...

Morgan, that sounds much easier and less clean-up

Janelle said...

I don't know about adding extra flour because I shape my dough out in Bisquick instead of flour. So, if the dough is too sticky you could add more Bisquick. The dough is very soft, you don't want the dough too stiff or they might bake up dry. They bake up nice and soft and about melt in your mouth :)

Dale said...

I being a health nut substituted yogurt for sour cream & used a flavored sparkling water for the 7-up. I however have made both version, both are great tasting and super easy to make.
Being the dough is so soft I just added a little of the butter to the baking dish & patted the dough out right in the pan & cut to desired width. I added the remaining butter in the areas that was cut to keep dough separated. Very simple & easier to handle dough as soft as it is.

The Davey's said...

Sweet mother Mary. I just made these and my life has been changed forever. These are so freakin' good!!!

LadyPav said...

Made these over the weekend for guests visiting and had them hooked!! Made them as bread for spaghetti dinner as well, but added garlic, cheese and parsley and oh my! A hit! Thanks so much for sharing!

bethelm said...

I plopped the dough from the bowl,into the pan, press to fit pan, cut into squares and bake.

Pauline Wice said...

Just made them for dinner. I subbed with diet 7up and light sour cream...yum! Whole family enjoyed...will be making more! Thanks for posting this recipe :)

Thought you might want to know, this page uses a different (doubled) recipe, but stole your photo, and is using it to sell a weight-loss scam:

Janelle said...

Ya, I have seen my photo all over Facebook & Pinterest sometimes linking it to my blog but many times linking to places other than my blog. Too bad I'm not getting any royalties from it, ha ha.. I don't know if there is any way to manage who gets a hold of my picture but I do appreciate it when it is properly linked to my blog. I did take the picture but I got the recipe from another blog, which I have credited in my post. Thanks for your concern. That's too bad my picture is being used for spam :(

Vicky Zanotto said...

I have Jiffy biscuit mix on hand. Would I be able to use this instead of bisquick?

Janelle said...

Yes Vicky, I have used other all purpose baking mixes with good results. Enjoy!

nbxmama said...

Love the recipe! For anyone wondering, when made according to the recipe with no subs they taste EXACTLY like KFC biscuits

mrs mo said...

Janelle, can you use krusteaz
pancake mix instead of bisquick?

Janelle said...

I don't believe that pancake mix would work, it needs to be an all purpose baking mix like Bisquick

Melissa B said...

I almost never use sour cream in anything. I prefer a sweeter flavor. Could I substitute cream cheese?

Janelle said...

I think that would make them very dense. These are very light and soft. The 7 up sweetens the rolls a little so I think you'll like them with the sour cream.

Rita Rios said...

I followed the directions except I put the melted butter in the pan and spread out the dough and cut them while in the pan. Other than that, it was simple, easy and most of all amazing!!!!! I tried one batch with my family and ended up having to make two additional batches! This was a major hit. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

Jennifer said...

My dough turned out way too soft and sticky to roll...would a little extra bisquick help?

Footloosefancyfree said...

Can you make these a day ahead and refrigerate them and bake next day?
