These Butter Swim Biscuits are biscuits baked in cake or casserole pan covered in butter to form a crispy crust with a super soft biscuit underneath the crust. These are perfect for breakfast.
These Butter Swim Biscuits are a baked buttermilk biscuit that is "swimming" in butter. They are great breakfast option and goes great with eggs and bacon! I serve these biscuits with some nice preserves.
These biscuits are super buttery and flaky. They have a crispy crust and a soft inside. I love these. Serve them at breakfast or brunch, everyone will enjoy them.
How to make Butter Swim Biscuits:
These biscuits are simple to make. Make a typical buttermilk biscuit mix. Then you cover the batter in melted butter and bake to golden perfection.
- All-Purpose Flour
- Baking Powder
- Butter - melted
Step One - Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Step Two - Add flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt to a mixing bowl and whisk.
Step Three - Pour buttermilk into your dry ingredients and gently mix making sure not to over mix.
Step Four - Pour melted butter into an 8x8 casserole dish.

Step Four continued - Spoon in dough and spread our evenly. Before baking use a butter knife to cut into 3 rows of squares.
Step Five - Bake for 25-27 minutes or until golden brown. Allow to rest 5-10 minutes before serving.
Tips for making these biscuits:
- Watch your butter! Make sure when melting the butter, you watch to not burn it. The key to this recipe is having rich golden melted butter.
- Do not overmix the batter. Overmixing the batter will result in a lot of air getting into the dough. This will cause the biscuit to not be as light and fluffy on the inside.
- Do not over bake. With the butter in the pan, over-baking could result in burning the biscuits as well. You want that golden brown color, and if you pull them out of the over a tad early they will still bake in the pan.
How to store the biscuits:
Once the biscuits are cooled you can store them in a Ziplock baggie or an air-tight container.
These biscuits will last about 5-7 days after baking.
Warm them up in the microwave for about 30 seconds before serving again.

Sorry for any confusion but yes it is 4 teaspoons.
I’m thinking there was a typo mistake because it says 4 tablespoons of baking powder and that seemed too much .I’m assuming it’s 4 teaspoons. So I used 4 teaspoons and they came out great.
I heard of this recipe on Food Network spring baking tonight. I had to find one to try out. I can't wait to try your recipe. Looks amazing.
Omgoodness ! They turned out perfect ! The top was lightly brown and the bottom was slightly crisp… and oh my the middle was like a fluffy little cloud with butter 🧈 🥰thank you for the great recipe it will be perfect for my sausage and gravy !
I made these they were great but the bottom did not get crusty. The tops were beautiful, I just felt if I left them in any longer the tops would burn.
The bottoms on biscuits like these do tend to be softer and not as crusty because they do not have any area out in the air of the oven.
I followed the recipe and mine turned out GREAT!
Thanks for a wonderful Recipe!
I made these and they didn't come out like the picture shown, they were soupy. I made them just as the recipe said & I was very disappointed. I really don't know what i did wrong. My daughter made these & they came out. I may try them again.
