All you need to make flaky, soft and fluffy buttermilk biscuits are all-purpose flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, butter, and buttermilk. Buttermilk biscuits are a comfort food that soothes the soul and warms the heart. You can enjoy it for breakfast with some milk and jam or jelly or eat it as a side dish to Fried chicken or barbecue. It also makes a filling snack for dull days and to cure an aching spirit. Serve buttermilk biscuits with gravy for a savory treat or with chocolate sauce for a lovely dessert. They can also work as appetizers for entertaining guests before lunch begins.
While soft and flaky, these buttermilk biscuits are also rich, buttery and dense. They make a great breakfast item since they are filling and can go with almost anything on the breakfast table including sausages, ham, bacon, eggs, and fresh fruits. What’s also great about making buttermilk biscuits is that you can make the dough ahead for time and keep them in the freeze for longer storage and then you simply pop them in the oven and in a couple of minutes you will have freshly baked buttermilk biscuits in no time and little effort. These are the perfect weekend brunch when friends are visiting.

This will result in more flaky and tender bread and taste absolutely scrumptious.
