homemade biscuit recipe

My husband and I grew up in the same town, but we had pretty different households, especially when it came to food.  My hubby grew up eating hearty, homemade country dishes like goulash, chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes, and biscuits and gravy.  My mom was an adventurous cook, and made different recipes from Italian, to Chinese, and of course, a lot of Mexican food recipes

I love both of the styles of cooking, and when I started dating my husband, I learned how to make all of his favorite country comfort food dishes that he grew up on.   Probably my favorite dish in my new country cooking repertoire is my homemade biscuit recipe.  

More specifically, I love my homemade biscuit recipe smothered in homemade sausage gravy.  

Homemade Biscuit Recipe

Makes 12 Biscuits


  • 4 cups unbleached flour
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tbsp salt
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 10 tbsp butter
  • 1.5 cups milk
  • 2 tbsp vinegar

Preheat oven to 400 degrees.  Mix together flour, baking powder, salt, sugar and baking soda.  Cut the butter into small cubes and add them to the flour mixture.  Using your hands, a fork, or a pastry cutter, crumble the butter into the flour mixture until the texture is similar to sand.  

In a separate bowl, combine milk and vinegar, and allow to sit for 5 minutes, until starting to curdle.  Make a well in the center of your flour mixture, and slowly pour in the milk mixture.  Mix together with your hands until a cohesive dough has formed.  

Turn out onto a lightly floured surface.  Gently spread the dough out to about 1/2″ thick.  Use a biscuit cutter, or the rim of a glass, cut out 12 biscuits. You may need to rework the dough. Place onto a lightly greased baking sheet or pizza stone (for an extra crunchy bottom).  Bake in preheated oven for 20 minutes, or until golden brown.
