To recreate the magic of KFC biscuits at home, you'll need:

  • - 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • - 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • - 1 tablespoon sugar
  • - 1 teaspoon salt
  • - 1/3 cup unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • - 1 cup buttermilk, cold
  • - 2 tablespoons butter, melted (for brushing)

    Note: The inclusion of sugar is optional and can be adjusted based on personal preference. The key to achieving the perfect texture is using cold butter and buttermilk, as they help create those desirable flaky layers.



  1. 1. Preheat your oven to 425°F (220°C). Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  2. 2. Mix dry ingredients: In a large bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar (if using).
  3. 3, Incorporate the butter: Using a pastry cutter or your fingers, cut the chilled butter into the dry ingredients until the mixture resembles coarse crumbs.
  4. 4. Add the liquids: Gradually pour in the buttermilk, stirring until just combined. Avoid overmixing to ensure the biscuits remain flaky.
  5. 5. Form the biscuits: On a lightly floured surface, gently knead the dough a few times. Roll it out to about 1-inch thickness and use a biscuit cutter to cut out rounds. Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet.
  6. 6. Bake: Bake in the preheated oven for 12-15 minutes or until the biscuits are golden brown.
  7. 7. Brush with butter: Once out of the oven, brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter for that irresistible KFC-style finish.
