There’s something supremely satisfying about biting into a freshly baked buttermilk biscuit. The golden crust shatters delicately, giving way to a fluffy and tender interior that melts in your mouth. With a few simple steps, you’ll be rewarded with a batch of golden beauties that will make any meal feel special.
Buttermilk biscuits are a versatile canvas for creativity, too. While the classic version is a delight on its own, you can easily elevate them with additions like grated plant-based cheese, herbs like chopped rosemary of thyme, or a sprinkle of spices. These variations open up a world of possibilities, allowing you to customize the biscuits to your own tastes and preferences.
These buttermilk biscuits are perfect for a cozy breakfast, as a side for soups or stews, or simply as a delicious snack. Get creative and experiment with different flavors and add-ins to make them your own.

Vegan Buttermilk Biscuits
- 3/4 cup plant-based milk plain & unsweetened
- 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon sugar
- 1 tablespoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 8 tablespoons cubed butter
- Preheat your oven to 400°F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
- To make the vegan buttermilk: measure out the milk and add a teaspoon of lemon juice or vinegar. Set aside until ready to use.
- In a large mixing bowl, or the bowl of your food processor, blend together the flour, baking powder, sugar and salt until well combined.
- Add the cold butter cubes to the flour mixture. Using your fingers or a pastry cutter, cut the butter into the flour (or pulse in the processor) until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs. This will help create a flaky texture.
- Drizzle in the buttermilk. Gently stir with a fork or spatula (or pulse) until the dough starts to come together. Be careful not to overmix, as this can result in tough biscuits.
- Roll out the dough into a 1-inch thickness. You can use a rolling pin or simply press it down with your hands.
- Using a round biscuit cutter or a drinking glass, cut out biscuits from the dough. Place the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet, leaving a small space between each one.
- You can also use an ice cream scoop to scoop up the dough and drop the biscuits onto the prepared baking sheet. I prefer this method because it's easier, quicker, and far less messy.
- Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for about 15-20 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top and cooked through.
- Once baked, remove the biscuits from the oven and transfer them to a wire rack to cool slightly. Serve warm and enjoy!
