My grandma used to make the most delicious biscuits I’ve ever tasted. They were always so fluffy, light, and buttery. I remember one summer evening, our neighbors came over for a barbecue and everyone was bringing something. My grandma decided to make her famous biscuits. She had a secret ingredient that she wouldn’t share with anyone, not even me. As we all sat down to eat, everyone was raving about her biscuits and trying to guess what her secret ingredient was. It wasn’t until years later that she finally shared her secret with me – it was 7-Up! I was so surprised that something as simple as a soda could make such a difference in a recipe. Today, I am going to share with you my grandma’s Easy 7-Up Biscuits recipe.

How to Prepare Easy 7-Up Biscuits

Ingredients :

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 4 1/2 cups of Bisquick
  • 1 cup 7-Up lemon-lime soda
  • 1 cup sour cream


  1. Start by preheating your oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. While the oven is preheating, place the butter in a 9×13 inch baking dish and put it in the oven until the butter melts.
  3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the baking mix, lemon-lime soda, and sour cream. Stir the ingredients until the dough comes together and becomes sticky.
  4. Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and roll it into a circle that is about 1 inch thick.
  5. Using a cookie cutter or the rim of a wine glass, cut circles out of the dough and place them in the melted butter in the baking dish.
  6. Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until they are golden brown.
  7. Remove the baking dish from the oven and let the biscuits stand until they have absorbed all of the butter.

Can I use a different type of soda?

Yes, you can use a different type of soda, but the lemon-lime flavor of 7-Up adds a unique and delicious taste to the biscuits.

Can I use low-fat sour cream?

Yes, you can use low-fat sour cream in this recipe, but the biscuits may not be as rich and tender as they would be with full-fat sour cream.

Can I freeze the biscuits?

Yes, you can freeze the biscuits. Just make sure to let them cool completely before wrapping them in aluminum foil and placing them in a freezer-safe bag. They can be frozen for up to 3 months. To reheat, bake them in a 350-degree oven for about 20 minutes or until they are heated through.

Can I make the dough ahead of time?

Yes, you can make the dough ahead of time. Just cover it tightly with plastic wrap and refrigerate it for up to 24 hours. When you are ready to bake the biscuits, roll out the dough, cut the biscuits, and follow the baking instructions in the recipe.

Do I have to use a baking mix?

Using a baking mix like Bisquick makes this recipe quick and easy, but you can make your own homemade baking mix if you prefer. Just combine 2 cups of all-purpose flour, 3 teaspoons of baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon of salt, and 1/4 cup of vegetable oil or melted butter.

What can I serve with these biscuits?

These biscuits are very versatile and can be served with a variety of dishes. They are great with fried chicken, barbecue, stews, and soups. They also make a delicious breakfast sandwich with bacon, egg, and cheese.
