These Southern Buttermilk Biscuits are unbelievable right out of the oven! Fluffy, super soft, and melt-in-your-mouth bliss. Your family will adore these. Definitely eat these right away, while they’re fresh and warm.
Years ago, I discovered Hubby’s buttermilk biscuit habit. It almost always manifested itself when we went out for fried chicken. He’d regularly order extra biscuits. Sharing wasn’t high on his priority list so I had to fend for myself when hot biscuits were happening.
The Littles have one by one shown their own allegiance to buttermilk biscuits. These days, we have to order an armload of freshly baked biscuits to go with a basket of fried chicken so nobody gets left out of the biscuit party.
I quickly figured out that fried chicken isn’t a necessity where freshly baked buttermilk biscuits are concerned. Warm, soft, fluffy, buttery biscuits are immediately inhaled with just about any meal…
Not just any biscuits will do, however. I can appreciate the ease of store-bought refrigerated canned biscuits. I get a big kick out of them for fun recipes like this.
But when you’ve got a hankering for the best buttermilk biscuits ever…the kind that melts in your mouth? Well, then ya gotta go from scratch and make these Southern Buttermilk Biscuits.
Lucky for us all, from-scratch buttermilk biscuits are simple. Totally manageable, even on a weeknight.
Biscuits are one of the easiest homemade dinner breads you can make, as they don’t need rising. There’s no messing with yeast, no first rise, second rise, or any rise.

Do eat these right out of the oven, while they’re still warm and fresh. They’re at they’re most irresistible at that point.
