Okay, so if they are called “Buttermilk Biscuits” then how can they be made without the buttermilk?
Well, not everyone has buttermilk on hand. Not everyone wants buttermilk on hand.
I am one of those people who always has Greek Yogurt in the fridge.
I love my Greek Yogurt. I eat Greek Yogurt for breakfast. I use it in my recipes.
Buttermilk is just something that I don’t even think I have even ever purchased.
My mother never used buttermilk and never had it around while I was growing up. To be honest, I never liked milk as a kid and my mother had to search for other ways for me to get my calcium.
Buttermilk Biscuits Without the Buttermilk
Biscuits are often the one food that a family can pop into the oven and enjoy on a weekend morning together as a family.
We butter our biscuits. We put jam on our biscuits. I’ve even put chocolate chips in my biscuits (I’ll share those soon as I am now thinking about chocolate chip biscuits and will have to make them soon.)
You will need butter with this recipe.
It is the butter that will give these biscuits their yummy taste.
I am just substituting the buttermilk. If you don’t want butter, you can always use 3/4 cup of olive oil for every cup of butter called for in the recipe. Then you may want to try a butter seasoning such as the ones linked to here.
Lastly, there is no sugar and thus, no sugar substitute needed in this recipe.
