Easy 7-up Biscuits from Scratch

What?  Yep, that’s right, 7up biscuits.  Some places on the internet call these Popeye’s Biscuits – I guess they taste like the biscuits from the chicken place.  All I know is that these were the best biscuits that I’ve ever made – hands down!  They were light and fluffy.  They only have four ingredients – so quick and easy!  We had them with dinner but I will make them again for breakfast.  Chicken Legs wants a biscuit with bacon and cheese – YUM!

What is Bisquick?

Bisquick is a pre-made baking mix sold by Betty Crocker. It is made with flour, shortening, salt, sugar, and baking powder.

If you don’t have access to a box of Bisquick baking mix, you can make a quick homemade Bisquick mix.

In a food processor pulse 1 cup of all-purpose flour, 1 1⁄2 teaspoons of baking powder, 1⁄2 teaspoon of salt, and 2 1⁄2 tablespoons Crisco shortening. If you don’t have a food processor, you can use a pastry cutter to cut the shortening into the flour mixture.

How to Make 7up Biscuits

These tender biscuits are super easy to make with only four simple ingredients. Start with putting some melted butter in a baking dish. In a large mixing bowl, mix together Bisquick, sour cream, and 7up lemon-lime soda just until a soft dough forms. The dough will be somewhat soft and sticky. 

Sprinkle some extra Bisquick on the counter and place the biscuit dough on top of it. Gently knead and fold the dough until coated with your baking mix. Pat the dough into a 9-inch square and cut out the biscuits with a 3-inch round biscuit cutter or cookie cutter. Place the biscuits on top of the melted butter in the baking pan. Bake in a preheated oven until golden brown.

Helpful Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

  • If you don’t have 7up in the fridge, you can substitute Sprite or Ginger Ale.
  • The dough will be very soft. Try to avoid overmixing or adding too much extra Bisquick to the dough. The soft dough is what gives these biscuits their light and fluffy texture.
  • Can I Freeze Biscuits? Yes! To freeze the baked biscuits, cool them to room temperature and place them in a single layer in an airtight container or freezer bag. Store the biscuits in the freezer for up to 3 months. 
    • To freeze unbaked biscuits, Freeze them in a single layer so you can easily remove a few at a time. Frozen biscuit dough can be baked straight out of the refrigerator at 450 degrees F for 10-12 minutes
  • Store leftovers in an airtight container or wrapped in plastic wrap at room temperature.

  1. I made them with gluten free baking mix and Sprite Zero. I melted butter in the dish and dropped the dough in by spoonfuls and brushed more butter on top. Absolutely perfect!

  2. Wow made these this morning fiancé taste like Grandmas and that’s a compliment served with homemade apple butter, delicious thanks so much for sharing

      1. What a great idea! But unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

  3. Never made biscuits before -these are awesome. The left overs from the first morning went for biscuits and gravy the next morning. They hold their own to the sausage gravy. Thank you for this!!
