Angel Biscuits


  • 1 package of yeast
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 2 cups buttermilk We always put 1 teaspoon lemon juice or vinegar in regular milk to sour the milk and use it in place of buttermilk
  • 1/2 teaspoon soda put in the buttermilk
  • 2/3 cups cooking oil like vegetable or canola oil
  • 4 rounded teaspoons baking powder It does not matter how “rounded” your teaspoons are.
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 6 cups flour


  1. Dissolve: yeast and sugar in the warm water
  2. Add in the order the buttermilk with baking soda, cooking oil, baking powder, salt, and flour.
  3. Knead like biscuit dough. (Spoon the dough out onto a floured board and add some flour until it’s not so sloppy and knead it.)
  4. Let set for 1/2 hour. However, it does not need to rise. (I do not usually do this step as I am always in a rush. They turn out fine.)
  5. Roll out dough to 1/2“ thick. Cut the biscuits. Place on lightly greased cookie sheet or baking pan. Bake at 425° for 12-15 minutes. The leftover dough may be stored in a container in the refrigerator.
