These easy 7Up Drop Biscuits should have their own fan club in fact, they just might. They’re made with four simple ingredients and are guaranteed to thrill the biscuit loving eaters at your table. They’re slightly sweet, super fluffy and the low fuss preparation makes them perfectly suited for those days when you have a craving for the house bread of the South made with little effort.
This fun biscuit recipe has been floating around kitchens for some time. Not surprising, it’s featured on the 7 Up Brand website. I pretty much make them just as the recipe directs but, prefer making them as drop biscuits to simplify preparation. I’m particularly partial to baking these biscuits in a cast iron skillet for the crust that it gives to the biscuits plus, that’s literally how I learned to make biscuits as a little girl. My entire family bakes biscuits in cast iron as the preferred baking method. It’s not an problem if you don’t have a cast iron skillet they can, of course, be baked in any similar-size baking dish. After arranging the biscuits in the skillet with the melted butter make a point to reserve some to brush the tops before baking. Doing this will give them that golden color that makes them so appealing. Fill them with ham, butter or jam and serve them fresh from the oven at any meal. See also 7Up Pound Cake.
