Ingredients

  • cups (312.5 g) all-purpose flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 cups (490 g) buttermilk
  • ½ cup (1 stick, 113 g) butter, melted

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 450°F.
  • Add flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt to a medium bowl. Use a whisk to sift ingredients.
  • Pour in the buttermilk and stir until mostly combined, being careful not to overwork the batter.
  • Pour the melted butter into an 8x8-inch baking dish*. Place the dough on top of the butter and use a spatula (or your hands) to evenly spread the dough out to the edges of the pan.
  • Cut the unbaked dough into 9 squares (3x3 pattern). Bake for 28 minutes, or until the tops are golden brown.
  • Allow the butter to be absorbed into the biscuits before cutting and serving.

Notes

You can place the baking dish on a baking sheet in case of spillover.
