Only 4 simple ingredients are needed to make these superbly rich, tender, and fluffy 7-Up Biscuits. Better yet, no biscuit cutter needed. These magical biscuits are wonderful with breakfast or any southern meal.
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.
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.
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.
Tips for making 7-Up Biscuits
- Use either 7-Up or Sprite. I think Ginger-Ale would work fine too.
- You can substitute a homemade Bisquick mix for the Bisquick, but NOT self-rising flour.
- Bisquick is a great pantry staple to have and can also be used to make pancakes and Deep Dish Taco Squares

Sausage Gravy Stuffed Biscuits
- 2 cups Bisquick
- 1/2 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup 7-up
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/4 cup butter
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees.
- 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.
- In a medium bowl, stir the Bisquick and sour cream together. Slowly pour in 7-up. Add salt.
- 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.
- 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.
- Bake for 8-12 minutes. Cut into 9 squares.

First time making them. Used ginger ale instead of 7 up. Wonderful!
I have made these for years and they are fantastic! However I roll them out, with rolling pin or a glass. Cut with biscuit cutter. Never made them solid in a pan though.
I have never made biscuits, tried this recipe and results A+, light and fluffy and easy to make. 5*
Yay! So glad your first biscuits turned out well! I don’t think many people can say that. 🙂
This sounds so cool! I have to try this so I can see what it tastes like. Love fun ingredient dishes like this.
I love making biscuits, but I’ve never heard of 7-up biscuits. They sound incredible and so simple. I’m really intrigued — what a great idea!
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.
Never heard of this, so cool! They look like they have a wonderful texture
This is a recipe that is flat out FUN. I like to serve things and make people guess what the secret ingredient is. I would win this contest I am sure. Plus everyone gets a prize of a delicious biscuit.
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!
I faintly remember hearing about these biscuits when I was younger. I have never tried them, but using the soda sounds interesting. They look like they came out with a perfect fluffy biscuit texture.
I’m intrigued! These look delicious and so fluffy!
They look fine to me…
I love biscuit recipes where you don’t have to cut in butter! This looks like a keeper.
Intriguing! Years of tradition cannot be wrong! I think the sweetness from the soda sounds delicious in biscuits, but I like sweet biscuits. Guilty.
ps- I got totally sidetracked by all your other biscuit recipes. You are now the Biscuit Queen!
I haven’t made biscuits in so long despite how simple they are. These ones sound great! I also happen to have bisquick in my pantry 🙂
These 7 up biscuits are making my heart scream with delight!
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
Wow I definitely need to try these biscuits! Who knew that 7up could create such a fluffy biscuit? Love these! 🙂
My hubby has been begging me to make biscuits! I love how easy these look, and I have never baked with pop, so I gotta try these! Pinned 🙂
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.
