Butter Swim Biscuits “



  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
  • Additional melted butter for brushing (optional)


  1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 450°F (230°C). Grease a 9×9-inch baking dish or a similar-sized oven-safe dish.
  2. Mix Dry Ingredients: In a mixing bowl, combine the all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt. Mix well.
  3. Add Melted Butter: Pour the melted butter into the dry ingredient mixture. Stir until the butter is fully incorporated. The mixture will resemble a shaggy dough.
  4. Add Buttermilk: Pour the buttermilk into the bowl with the dough. Stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the dough should be lumpy.
  5. Transfer to Baking Dish: Pour the biscuit dough into the greased baking dish. Spread it out evenly.
  6. Create “Butter Pool”: Here comes the “Butter Swim” part. Take a fork or the back of a spoon and poke deep holes all over the biscuit dough. This will create pockets for the butter to pool.
  7. Bake: Place the dish in the preheated oven and bake for 20-25 minutes or until the top is golden brown and the biscuits are cooked through. The melted butter will create a crispy, buttery crust on the bottom.
  8. Optional Butter Brush: If you want extra buttery goodness, you can brush the top of the biscuits with additional melted butter as soon as they come out of the oven.
  9. Serve: Allow the biscuits to cool slightly before serving. You can serve them with butter, honey, jam, or any other favorite toppings.
