Everyone’s heard of 7up Biscuits, right? But what about 7up Biscuits Skillet Style? Biscuits turn out fluffy inside with a crispy coating. Great with butter and jam, or slathered in sausage gravy.
When my mother passed away last year, I brought all her cast iron pans home. She loved cooking in a cast-iron skillet and had collected a few over the years. But I don’t remember her ever baking in them, so I thought I’d try dropping 7up biscuits in one, rather than rolling and cutting out the biscuit dough, I took the easy way and made a drop biscuit recipe instead.
Any bread or biscuit recipe is a friend of mine, especially if it doesn’t take too long and doesn’t involve yeast. Have you tried my Garlic Cheddar Beer Bread or my Bacon Cheddar French Bread? I think you’ll enjoy them too! Looking for something REALLY quick? These Biscuit Savory Rounds are great in a pinch.
7up Biscuits Skillet Style
This biscuit recipe uses a biscuit mix like Bisquick to speed up the process. It also uses lemon-lime soda, like 7up or sprite. Not diet, you’ll need the hard stuff for this recipe.
7up Biscuit Recipe Supplies
- 7up or Sprite
- Sour Cream
- Cast Iron Skillet – I used a 12.5 inch.
- Medium Mixing Bowl
- Wooden Spoon
That’s it! Only 4 ingredients are needed for the best 7up biscuits skillet style.
This recipe is SO simple in fact, it would be a great recipe for young children to start off with. They’d get a kick out of using soda pop.
You’ll want to serve this straight out of the oven with more butter and a dollop of jam, but they are also fantastic to use for a bacon egg sandwich or biscuits and gravy.
These biscuits melt in your mouth with a bottom crust that’s light, with a slightly crisp texture. They don’t make for a tidy biscuit, but they make up for it with flavor!
Can You Make 7up Biscuits Ahead of Time?
If you had to, I suppose you could, but they are best fresh out of the oven. Anytime, I’ve had leftover biscuits and stored in a plastic bag, they would lose their crisp outer coating. Heat all extras in the oven, rather than a microwave.
Can I use Diet Soda?
Nope, it just won’t turn out. Just like my easy apple dumplings, the recipe needs the sugar from the soda to work well.
Can I Use Other Flavored Soda for 7up Biscuits?
I suppose you could, as long as it’s full sugar. I’ve never tried it. If you’re using a cola or a soda with a darker color, your biscuits will be tan and not white, which isn’t a big deal. You could probably also use sparkling cider or even beer like in my Garlic Cheddar Beer Bread.
- 4 cups baking mix like Bisquick
- 1 cup 7up or Lemon-Lime soda
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1/2 cup melted butter
- Pre-heat your oven for 400 degrees.
- In a medium bowl, mix together the biscuit mix, 7up and sour cream with a wooden spoon.
- Using a large spoon, drop large scoops of the mixture into your cast iron skillet until the skillet is full.
- Pour melted butter over the dough, making sure it seeps down to the bottom. This is what will give you that light crispy crust.
- Bake at 400 degrees for 15-20 min, or until done with a lightly browned upper crust.
