The Best Baking Powder Biscuits Recipes We Can Find

If you’re anything like me, you just love biscuits.

But you’ll find that if you add baking powder to your biscuit mix, you get a whole different kind of biscuit – thick, fluffy and delicious. And they go just great with sausage gravy.

Or for sweeter taste sensation dynamic, you can serve them up English style with cream and jam.

Let me show you all the great baking powder biscuits I’ve found for you to scan through and hopefully try out and enjoy…

True, this recipe takes a little longer to prepare than some of the others, but trust me it’s definitely worth it if you have the time. 

What really makes it special is the glaze. And it’s easy to make, too. You just mix equal amounts of melted butter and double cream and brush the biscuits with it before you put them in to bake. And the recipe yields enough to make 8 individual servings.

Sarah’s Authentic British Scones

If you’d like to try the British version of baking powder biscuits, this is how they do it! British scones are traditionally served with liberal lashings of jam and cream as part of their “cream tea”. Though there is some debate about which should be on the top, the jam or the cream. Either way, it’s delicious in my book! And it’s proved pretty popular on the net, too.

And the great thing about this recipe is that it freezes really well, so if you make more dough than you need, you can simply save some for another day.

Feast Glorious Feast’s Breakfast Biscuits

If English scones don’t really appeal to you, perhaps you’d be more inclined to go for some Southern American classic breakfast biscuits like these. They’re a great comfort food, intended as a savory side or as a breakfast base. Maybe with some nice sausage gravy. 

What I love about this recipe is just how quick it is to make. It only takes 22 minutes, and that includes both the prep and the baking.

Marie Rayner’s Angel Biscuits

These biscuits are amazing – light as air, lovely and fluffy, soft as a pillow.

What makes them different from regular baking powder biscuits is that in addition to using baking powder, they also use a little yeast to help them rise that bit more. You’ll notice the difference. 

The recipe yields 10 biscuits in total, and they will be ready in less than 40 minutes – and that includes both the prep and the baking time. 

And there are two ways of making them, either spread apart in the oven, or close together in a skillet, which gives them softer sides.
