These fluffy biscuits are one of the greatest Southern recipes you’ll ever lay your hands on. They are light as a cloud, simple, and breeze to make. A pretty straightforward biscuit recipe that reveals the secrets of making this traditional Southern Buttermilk Biscuits.
I love a good old Southern recipe. They make the best comfort food. Like these biscuits that are extremely easy and quick to prepare. A quick bread that is perfect with just about anything and is great too when slathered with butter and strawberry jam. And nothing beats a freshly baked warm biscuit every day.
My husband is obsessed with these fluffy, tender, and butter biscuits. His favorite morning breakfast with some eggs and bacon on the side, or easy dinner with chicken and some coleslaw. Whenever I am baking these gorgeous biscuits, he always comes to the kitchen to check when it is done so he can steal a piece without me knowing. He’s crazy obsessed with these biscuits and I can understand why. This no-fuss Southern Buttermilk biscuit deserves a big round of applause.
