Blueberry Buttermilk Drop Biscuits

  • Author: Adapted from Bake or Break
  • Prep Time: 10 mins
  • Cook Time: 25 mins
  • Total Time: 35 mins
  • Yield: 12 biscuits 1x


  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) chilled unsalted butter, cut into small cubes
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 3/4 cup fresh blueberries


  1. Heat oven to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl or bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, stir together flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Use a pastry cutter or your fingers to cut in the butter until the pieces are the size of small peas and the mixture resembles a coarse crumb.
  3. Pour in the buttermilk; stir until just combined. Add blueberries and stir until just combined (do not overmix or you’ll break the blueberries).
  4. Scoop or spoon slightly less than 1/4-cupfuls of batter onto prepared baking sheet. Bake 25 minutes until biscuits are puffed, golden brown and baked through. Serve warm.
