Blend buttermilk a little at a time until all flour is moist and the dough can be gathered in the center of the bowl.
Turn onto a floured surface and kneed lightly until the dough is easy to work with and not sticky. Roll out and cut biscuits to your favorite size - 3/4-inch thick.
Bake at 450 degrees until golden brown - about 12 to 14 minutes. Paint with melted butter and serve hot.
Note From Mr Breakfast:
When I tried this recipe, I included the optional sugar, used butter instead of shortening and used 2 teaspoons baking powder and 1/2 teaspoon baking soda instead of 2 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder. The biscuits turned out great!
While every day is a good day for buttermilk biscuits, there's only one National Buttermilk Biscuit Day and that May 14th.
For a more in-depth look at this recipe, see my article called How To Make Buttermilk Biscuits.
A basic biscuit recipe that adds a homespun goodness to any breakfast. Very good with a sausage patty for a simple breakfast sandwich.
Mr Breakfast would like to thank Saunny for this recipe.

Loved them!! Added the optional sugar, and used baking soda instead of baking powder. They tasted delicious! But since I have no experience, they didn't look like the picture. Mine had a smooth surface. How do you make it bumpy?

Worked good for me. I added just two teaspoons of sugar based on the note from Dan. It took about 20 minutes for them to be done.

Traditional Biscuits should have a little sugar in them. If you are using vegetable shortening or lard (lard is the prefered method but is not great for you) then sugar is a must because it cuts down on the greasy flavor you sometimes get.

Yum! They were awsome! Try subsititing baking powder with baking soda! It make them crispy and fluffy!
