  • For the Homemade Angel Biscuits:
  • 2 1/4 teaspoons 2 1/4 (1 packet) active dry yeast

  • 2 tablespoons 2 warm water (110°F or 43°C)

  • 2 1/2 cups 2 1/2 (315g) all-purpose flour

  • 1 tablespoon 1 granulated sugar

  • 1 teaspoon 1 baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon 1/2 baking soda

  • 1 teaspoon 1 salt

  • 1/2 cup 1/2 (1 stick or 113g) unsalted butter, cold and cut into small pieces

  • 1 cup 1 (240ml) buttermilk, cold

  • 1/4 cup 1/4 (60ml) warm water (110°F or 43°C)

  • For Brushing (Optional):
  • 2 tablespoons 2 melted butter


  • In a small bowl, dissolve the active dry yeast in 2 tablespoons of warm water. Let it sit for about 5 minutes, or until it becomes frothy.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  • Add the cold, cubed unsalted butter to the dry ingredients. Use a pastry cutter or your fingertips to work the butter into the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs.
  • Pour in the buttermilk and the yeast mixture. Stir until the dough comes together into a shaggy mass.
  • Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and gently knead it a few times, just until it comes together. Be careful not to overwork the dough.
  • Roll out the dough to about 1/2-inch thickness.
  • Using a round biscuit cutter or a glass, cut out biscuits and place them on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Combine the remaining 1/4 cup of warm water with the yeast mixture that you set aside earlier. Brush the mixture over the tops of the biscuits. This helps them rise and become extra light.
  • Cover the biscuits with a clean kitchen towel and let them rise for about 1 hour in a warm, draft-free place, or until they have doubled in size.
  • Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C).
  • Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes, or until they are golden brown on top.
  • Remove the biscuits from the oven and brush them with melted butter if desired.
  • Serve your Homemade Angel Biscuits warm and savor their ethereal fluffiness!
