White Lily Flour Makes the Best Biscuits

Until just recently, I had never heard of brown sugar biscuits. My husband ate them when he was a little boy. My favorite recipe for homemade biscuits is made with White Lily flour. It was what I was raised with so I tend to use this flour when I bake. So these brown sugar biscuits we had for breakfast help us both to remember happy times we had growing up.

  • 1 1/2 cups White Lily All-purpose Flour
  • pinch salt
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 2/3 to 3/4 cup buttermilk, or can use sweet milk

Cook Time

Prep time: 5 min
Cook time: 10 min
Ready in: 15 min
Yields: up to a dozen biscuits depending on the size


  1. Mix the flour, baking soda, salt and baking powder together. Cut in shortening with the dry ingredients until texture is crumbly. Stir in buttermilk. Mix well. You can roll these out and cut them or you can make drop biscuits by just dropping the dough from the spoon onto the pan.
  2. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in a 500 ° oven.
  3. Slice the biscuits in half almost as soon as they come out of the oven. Spread with butter and then put a small spoonful of brown sugar on top of the butter. Spread it out, making a thin layer. Let sit a few minutes to give the butter and brown sugar time to melt. It is scrumptious. The taste is hard to describe. It is full and rich, almost like honey and almost like caramel. It is so good, especially when the butter mixed with brown sugar starts to drip down your chin.

Brown Sugar Biscuits on a Saturday Morning

It is Saturday morning and

We have slept late enough for it to be delicious.

My husband slips out of bed

To turn the oven on

As I play with our dog

Who is now on my chest wanting attention.

I get out of bed and

We look at pictures of unlikely animal pairs on the internet.

So cute and sweet.

What a nice way to start our morning

As the biscuits start to bake.

We snuggle and cuddle under the blanket on our couch

Enjoying the closeness of together.

We converse and reconnect over the previous week.

He wants to eat brown sugar biscuits this morning like his daddy used to make.

      Tobusiness, Cream and strawberry jam sounds pretty good on a scone or biscuit. Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Frank, Thanks for reading. Biscuits from scratch can't be beat. I'm finding out, talking to my neighbors, they are a bit rare. Hope you get to make some.

      Absolutely delicious!...over here we call the biscuits scones, they are great with clotted cream and strawberry jam, however; brown sugar with hot butter dripping down the chin sound glorious, just got to try it.

      Hi, Debbie. Thanks for reading. I'll confess, sometimes, I use frozen biscuits or canned biscuits. But, nothing beats a homemade biscuit for a nice treat. I hope you enjoy the brown sugar biscuits.

      Yum! I bet few people still make biscuits from scratch these days! It's not hard, but we've gotten lazy. I love to make homemade biscuits and I'll give this recipe a try!
