Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 25 minutes

Yield: Makes About 12 Biscuits


  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour, 10 ounces
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 5 tablespoons melted butter
  • 3/4 cup beer (6 ounces)\
  • milk or cream for brushing tops
  • paprika


Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat, or spray with baking spray. Heat oven to 375°.

Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and sugar in a mixing bowl. Whisk to blend thoroughly.

Add the melted butter and beer and stir until the mixture holds together. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead 3 or 4 times, just enough to make a soft, cohesive dough.

Cut out with biscuit cutters and place on the prepared baking sheet.

Brush lightly with milk or cream and sprinkle with paprika.

Bake for about 15 minutes, until bottoms are browned.

Makes 10 to 12 biscuits, or more with a smaller biscuit cutter.

Made these today. Ate one. Immediately made another batch so I could share a few with a friend and my sister who are, like me, always looking for a good biscuit recipe. Love these. Light, moist, rose really high, a very slight hint of beer taste. Baked 4 minutes longer than called for before browning occurred. Sifted the flour. Best biscuit I've ever been able to bake. Much better than biscuits baked by anyone I know personally...and I've eaten lots of home-made biscuits.
