  • 2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup of granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 2/3 cup of sweet cream
  • 2/3 cup of buttermilk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) of unsalted butter, melted

Now that ingredients have been gathered, it’s time to put them together and create the delicious Sweet Cream Buttermilk Pancake Biscuits. Follow along with the step-by-step instructions to make perfect biscuits every time.

Step 1: Preheat the Oven

Start by preheating the oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit (218 degrees Celsius). This will ensure that the oven is heated and ready to go when the biscuits are prepared for baking.

Step 2: Mix Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, whisk together 2 cups of pancake mix, 1 tsp of baking powder, and 1/4 tsp of baking soda. Do this properly to ensure there are no lumps or bumps in the mixture, which will affect the quality of the biscuits.

Step 3: Add Wet Ingredients

After whisking dry ingredients properly, add 1 cup of sweet cream and 1/3 cup buttermilk. Stir gently until all ingredients are mixed well.

Step 4: Knead the dough

Place flour on a clean surface then transfer the dough from the bowl onto it. Gently knead the dough for half a minute while folding it over from time to time. Over-kneading may cause exhausting pancakes or hard biscuits.

Step 5: Shape Dough

Pat or roll out dough to about an inch thickness on a floured surface then use a biscuit cutter or glass to cut out individual portions of dough. Repeat this process until all dough is used leaving you with beautiful biscuits ready for baking.

Step 6: Prepare for Baking

After cutting your biscuits out, place them on a prepared baking sheet with parchment papers ensuring one inch spacing in between each biscuit.

Step 7: Bake

Bake biscuits in the preheated oven until they turn golden brown which usually takes about ten to fifteen minutes at most. Remove them once they turn golden-brown then set aside allowing them to cool for a few minutes before enjoying!

By following these straightforward steps carefully, you’ll be able to develop delicious and mouth-watering Sweet Cream Buttermilk Pancake Biscuits in record time!

Substitutions and Variations

Variety is the spice of life, and that’s certainly true when it comes to breakfast! Here are some substitutions and variations you can make to this recipe for Sweet Cream Buttermilk Pancake Biscuits to switch things up while still keeping it delicious!

– Biscuit Mix: If you don’t have pancake mix, biscuit mix can be used instead. Simply swap out the pancake mix for an equal amount of biscuit mix. You’ll get tender, fluffy biscuits with a slightly different taste.

– Homemade Buttermilk: No buttermilk? No problem! Make your own homemade buttermilk by adding 1 tablespoon of white vinegar or lemon juice to a measuring cup. Then add enough milk to reach the 1-cup mark. Let it sit for a few minutes until it clabbers (becomes thick and slightly curdled), then use as you would store-bought buttermilk.

– Southern Charm: For more classic southern-style biscuits, swap out the pancake mix for an equal amount of all-purpose flour, plus a tablespoon of baking powder and a teaspoon of salt. Then add in 1/2 cup of shortening or butter, cutting it into the flour mixture until it resembles small peas. Finally, stir in 3/4 cup of milk or buttermilk until just combined, and proceed with the recipe as written.

– Sweet Cream Waffles: Use half pancake mix and half waffle mix for sweet cream waffles that are crispy on the outside and tender on the inside. Top with whipped cream and maple syrup for an indulgent breakfast treat.

– Copycat Cracker Barrel: Use 2 cups of Krusteaz Buttermilk Pancake Mix instead of generic pancake mix. Follow the recipe as written except do not use sour cream or sugar. Add more heavy cream or buttermilk if needed.

– Heavy Cream: Up that richness by swapping out one-fourth cup of buttermilk with heavy cream. You will have lighter texture but dreamier flavor.

By playing around with these different options, you can create countless variations on this versatile recipe! So go ahead – make it your own!

One of the best things about this Sweet Cream Buttermilk Pancake Biscuits recipe is that you can make these biscuits ahead of time and store them for later! This is especially helpful if you want to make a large batch of biscuits for a busy week, or if you want to save time in the mornings.

To make ahead, simply prepare the biscuit dough as directed in the recipe, and cut it into biscuit shapes. Then, place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and freeze until solid. Once frozen, transfer the biscuits to a freezer-safe container or bag and keep them in the freezer for up to 3 months.

When you’re ready to enjoy breakfast, remove as many biscuits as you need from the freezer and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Allow them to thaw at room temperature for about an hour, then bake them as directed in the recipe.

If you have leftover biscuits that you’d like to store for later, you can also keep them in an airtight container or zip-top bag. They’ll stay fresh for up to three days on your countertop, or up to a week in the refrigerator.

To reheat stored biscuits, simply wrap them in a damp paper towel and microwave for 15-20 seconds. You can also reheat them in an oven set to 350°F (175°C) for about five minutes.

Tips for Perfect Results

Preparing the perfect sweet cream buttermilk pancake biscuits might seem easy, but it requires a little bit of finesse to achieve a balance between fluffy and moist. Here are some helpful tips to ensure that your pancake biscuits turn out perfectly every time.

Firstly, when adding the wet ingredients to the dry pancake mix, use a light hand while mixing. Overlapping or kneading too much will activate the gluten, resulting in tough and chewy pancakes. It is important to combine the ingredients gently and quickly.

Secondly, don’t overmix the batter. It is better to leave small lumps in the batter than to smooth it out entirely. These lumps will eventually disappear during cooking but ensure that you end up with tender moist pancakes.

Thirdly, if you prefer fluffy biscuits, avoid pressing down on them during baking. Allowing enough space around each biscuit before dropping onto a baking sheet and putting them in the oven will prevent them from spreading out too much and becoming flat.

Fourthly, don’t forget to let the biscuit dough rest for 10-15 minutes after you form it into biscuit shapes. This allows them to relax and makes cutting easier while allowing them to rise properly.

Fifthly, when working with dough or batter ensure that all ingredients are at room temperature. This helps everything mix together more evenly resulting in lighter pancakes.

Sixthly, if you have extra buttermilk or sour cream lying around, go ahead and use it up in this recipe as it gives an excellent tangy flavor that pairs well with sweet cream.

Lastly, experiment with various toppings like whipped cream or honey butter that pairs well with sweet cream buttermilk pancake biscuits. By following these tips you are guaranteed to make delicious homemade southern biscuits everyone will love!

In conclusion, with this recipe in your hands, you can now create perfect sweet cream buttermilk pancake biscuits that are sure to impress.
