Yep, you read that correctly, these biscuits are made with 7-Up soda. But don’t let that scare you off. These biscuits aren’t very pretty, and in its unbaked state the dough was a bit soft and sloppy and barely filled the pan, but whatever the biscuits lack in looks is made up in their perfect texture and flavor. They achieve biscuit nirvana of being sturdy yet light, tender, and slightly spongey and are really flavorful (thanks to the butter and 7-Up) and tangy with just the right amount of salt. Plus, they’re quick to make as you just pat the dough into the pan and bake (no need to roll out the dough and cut out the biscuits).

Makes one 9×9 inch pan of biscuits
2 cups Bisquick mix
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup sour cream (not low fat)
1/2 cup 7-Up soda
1/4 cup melted butter
- Preheat your oven to 425°F.
- In a large bowl, combine the Bisquick and salt.
- Add the sour cream to the dry ingredients, and stir until the mixture is lumpy and moistened.
- Slowly pour in the 7-Up. I didn’t use the full 1/2 cup, because it would have made my dough too wet and too sticky to pat out.
- Sprinkle about 1/4 cup of flour on a wooden surface, and pat your dough into a 9×9 inch square. You do not have to knead your dough.
- Put a little more than half of your melted butter in the bottom of the 9×9 inch baking pan, and swirl it around to fully cover the bottom of the pan.
- Place the dough over the butter in the pan.
- Brush the remaining melted butter on top of the dough.
- Bake for 10-15 minutes until the top is golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean. Do not overbake as the biscuits will dry out.
