7-Up Biscuits

Only 4 simple ingredients are needed to make these superbly rich, tender, and fluffy 7-Up Biscuits.

7-Up Biscuits

You may be thinking- Hmmm….Biscuits made with 7-Up. I don’t know about that.

But this is a recipe that has been around for years and it really works. Even better, it’s super easy.

7-Up Biscuits

 

The sweetness of the 7-Up and the tang of the sour cream pretty much cancel each other out and you end up with a really, really good, tasty, light, and fluffy biscuit.

One bite and you’ll be hooked.

7-Up Biscuits

To make these biscuits, 1/2 a stick of butter gets melted in a 9-inch square pan. As the biscuits cook in this melted butter, the bottoms brown and crisp up and develop a wonderfully buttery taste.

To make the dough, just mix Bisquick with sour cream and then slowly add the 7-Up. Throw in a pinch of salt and turn the dough, which will be very sticky and wet, onto a floured surface. Be sure to coat your hands and the top of the dough with flour too. You don’t really need to knead it (no pun intended). I try to mess with it as little as possible and just shape it to fit the pan. Then I plop the whole piece of dough in the pan and cut it into individual biscuits when it is done cooking

It will look like it is going to turn into a hot mess, but it won’t. You can be sure these will be some of the best biscuits you’ve ever made.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups Bisquick
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup 7-up
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • Flour
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
  2. Place butter in a 9-inch square baking pan and place in the oven to melt the butter. Watch it carefully as the butter will burn quickly and easily. Alternately, you can melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and pour it into the baking pan.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir the Bisquick and sour cream together. Slowly pour in 7-up. Add salt.
  4. Spread a thin coating of flour on a large piece of parchment paper or your counter. Coat your hands with flour and sprinkle some on top of the dough.
  5. Shape into approximately a 9-inch square. Do not knead. At this point you can cut into individual square biscuits and place in the prepared pan on top of melted butter. But I just place the dough in the pan as 1 piece and cut into biscuits once cooked. Dough will be very wet and hard to work with. You will think the whole thing is going to turn into a hot mess, but it won't.
  6. Bake for 8-12 minutes. Cut into 9 squares.

  1. I have never heard of using 7 up in biscuits but in my never ending search for the perfect biscuit recipe this will be the next one I make. I don’t have bisquick but I suppose you could use any biscuit recipe and add sour cream and 7 up. They look wonderful.

  2. Wow, I haven’t tried 7up in baking but love the idea if it produces pretty fluffy biscuits like these. And super easy with only 4 ingredients? You can’t beat that, these sound awesome!

  3. 7 up biscuits? I am so intrigued! This is my first time hearing about this – I have had diet soda cakes before but never biscuits! Wow – thanks for shairng

  4. I love that it’s so easy and with so few ingredients! I haven’t tried baking with 7up only with coke..though I was a bit disappointed that it didn’t give any real flavor.
