  • 1/2 cup 1/2 (1 stick or 115g) unsalted butter

  • 2 cups 2 (240g) all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon 1 granulated sugar

  • 1 tablespoon 1 baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

  • 1 cup 1 (240ml) whole milk


  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Place the unsalted butter in a 9×9-inch baking dish and set it in the oven to melt while the oven preheats.
  • In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix until well combined.
  • Pour the whole milk into the dry ingredients and stir until a soft dough forms. Do not overmix; it’s okay if the dough is slightly lumpy.
  • Once the butter in the baking dish is melted and bubbling, carefully remove it from the oven.
  • Drop spoonfuls of the biscuit dough into the hot melted butter. It’s okay if the dough isn’t perfectly even; irregularities add to the biscuit’s charm.
  • Return the baking dish to the oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown and cooked through.
  • Remove the Irresistible Butter Swim Biscuits from the oven and let them cool slightly before serving.
  • Serve and savor the buttery delight of Irresistible Butter Swim Biscuits. Enjoy!
