7Up Drop Biscuits Fun To Make And Eat
This fun biscuit recipe has been floating around kitchens for some time. Not surprising, it's featured on the 7Up Brand website. I pretty much make them just as the recipe directs but, prefer making them as drop biscuits to simplify preparation and skip the rolling and cutting. It's particularly helpful on a busy day.
Do You Have To Have A Cast Iron Skillet To Make 7Up Drop Biscuits ?
The short answer is no, you can bake this biscuits in any size similar pan. 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 a problem if you don't have a cast iron skillet they can, of course, be baked in any similar-size baking dish.
Biscuit Making Tips
- After arranging the biscuits in the skillet with the melted butter make a point to reserve some butter to brush the tops before baking.
- Doing so, 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.
- Other baked goodies you can make with 7Up include this 7Up Pound Cake and fun Cherry Limeade Pound Cake from Recipe Girl.

Helpful Kitchen Items:
7Up Drop Biscuits
- 4 ½ cups buttermilk biscuit mix i.e. Bisquick or similar
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 cup 7UP®
- ½ cup butter melted
- Preheat the oven to 425°F. Pour ⅔ melted butter into the bottom of a 10-inch cast iron skillet or similar. Swirl to coat the sides or brush sides with a pastry brush. Set aside.
- Pour the biscuit mix into a medium size mixing bowl. Using a fork or pastry blender cut the sour cream into the biscuit mix until it resembles peas.
- Make a well in the center and add 7UP. Mix well into the biscuit mix until fully moistened.
- Usie a regular size ice cream scoop (4-oz) to divide the dough placing side by side in the buttered skillet.
- Brush the tops with reserved melted butter. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until golden.
- Serve hot with butter and jam, if desired.
Would this work for gluten free Bisquick?
I haven't tested it, if you try it let us know how it goes!
Do you think these biscuits will work for biscuits and gravy?
Yes, I do this all the time, like an SOS gravy or even great with pot roast and gravy poured over them tastes great too.
I agree, there's no wrong time of day for biscuits!
We love these! Do you think they would freeze well? I got 16 biscuits and we are biscuited out at the moment but don't want to waste them...
Yes, you can freeze these.
Tasteful! Moist! Super easy to make! Need I say more? Try the recipe, you will love it!
We live in central Mexico and there is no Bisquick or other “mix” type stuff. Do you know how I could make this with non-mix items? The recipe looks so yummy!
This recipe is specific to using a biscuit mix. I have many made-from-scratch biscuit recipes in the recipe index here.
Why yes you do have several and thank you!
It's my pleasure!
Thank you so much for this recipe! Biscuit attempts have always been an epic fail for me but these came out perfect! I'll never make them any other way again!
Wonderful, thanks so much!

Recipe stated 3 ingredients. You put 4, something from a little cup looking like water. What was it.
Please scroll to the bottom for the recipe. There are 4 ingredients.
I was wondering about how many biscuits does this recipe make?
10-12 biscuits depending on how generous you are when scooping the dough.
I don't own a cast iron pan...what else could I use to get a good result...tia
Any similar size pan or oven safe skillet will work, no problem.
I made these tonight but substituted the 7up for gingerale as its what I had on hand. These were soooo good and so easy to make !! The sour cream makes them moist and the gingerale makes them light and fluffy best bisquits Ive made in quite a while ! Ty
Ginger ale is a great substitution, I'm so happy you enjoyed these, thanks!
Does diet 7Up work?
It will work in the same amount but, could affect the sweetness a bit as artificial sweeteners don't generally hold up to heat very well. That said, it's carbonated and will work.
Hi Melissa, can I use soda water instead of 7up? I'd like to make them more on the savory side.
You can but, these aren't sweet surprisingly.
yes it does work and I can not tell any difference I'm a diabetic you have to try so save carbs were you can they are delicious

Could Ginger Ale be used in place of the 7-Up or would it not be sweet enough? OR could I just add a little sugar? Thanks. Enjoy your recipes so much!
Hi Carol, that's interesting. I share your love of ginger ale, and it would work in the same amount, of course. Just be aware the ginger will change the flavor
a bit but, it will work.
I was thinking the same thing.
I can't see how the ginger flavor would mess with it TOO much. It might actually ADD some flavor!
I always have ginger ale on hand, but rarely buy 7UP (cocktail preferences).
I'll post if/when I try it.
Are you saying 2/3rd of the 1/2 cup butter or am I not reading this right.
Yes, I'm saying reserve some butter for the tops.

These look wonderful Melissa - a must try for sure 😉
