I'm here to spruce up your week with these Honey Buttermilk Biscuits! I've been wanting to make this recipe for quite sometime. After my visit to a soul food restaurant with some friends over the weekend, I have been riding the soul food train. I'm talking craving all things soul food - mac n'cheese, candied yams, fried chicken - the whole nine. Not to mention, these pregnancy cravings have been all over the place.
One of my cravings recently has been biscuits. Specifically buttery flaky biscuits like my Maple Biscuits or Bacon Cheddar and Thyme Biscuits, except this time, I wanted a sweet version. Also, if you haven't noticed, strawberries are in season and have been SO sweet lately. So, I figured, why not combine the two? In doing so, I made this Honey Buttermilk Biscuits with Roasted Strawberries.
I wanted to take a break from talking about these Honey Buttermilk Biscuits with Roasted Strawberries to exclaim how excited I am to be taking part in the 2021 Juneteenth Virtual Cookout! Over 40 Black creators have contributed to this collaborative menu as a Freedom Day Tribute! Juneteenth marks our country's second Independence Day, the final emancipation of those enslaved in the US back in 1865. Join in, share, and help us continue the legacy of celebrating progress.

Well firstly, of course butter! You can also serve these with fresh mascarpone or cream cheese and then add the roasted strawberries. As far as drinks, I would recommend coffee or herbal tea. You can also serve with champagne, too! These honey buttermilk biscuits with roasted strawberries are ideal for brunch or a tea party (yes, a tea party!).
If you decide to serve with something other than roasted strawberries, the honey buttermilk biscuits are amazing with fried chicken or smoked ham, also with bacon and eggs as a sandwich!
It's SO easy! All you have to do is cut your strawberries in half and sprinkle with a little sugar, pinch of salt, and vanilla extract. Then toss onto a baking sheet and bake for about 25 minutes at 350 °F. The end result are caramelized, sweet, syrupy strawberries. Perfect to add to just about anything, especially these Honey Buttermilk Biscuits!
All you need are a few basic kitchen items. See below!
Optional Items you can use, but aren't necessary.
Combine the dry ingredients and then add butter that's been cut into small cubes. Pinch together with your hands and fluff flour until pea sized morsels begin to form.
TIP: You can also use a food processor for this recipe as opposed to mixing the dough by hand. Simply add dry ingredients and pulse. Then add butter and pulse until pea size morsels begin to form. Then add buttermilk (if you don't know how to make buttermilk, it's super easy! Check out this link to make your own homemade buttermilk with just two ingredients!) and process with steps 4 onward as listed in the recipe card below. I simply use my hands because I like playing in flour and these honey buttermilk biscuits was the perfect opportunity 🙂
Then whisk together buttermilk and honey and add to the dough. Knead until the buttermilk mixture is incorporated into the dough. Of note, the dough will be shaggy so be sure to not over knead trying to achieve a smooth dough. You want a shaggy, kind of dry dough!
Cut dough into 4 equal pieces and stack each piece on top of each other. Press together and form dough into a square. Using a rolling pin, roll dough until ¾ inches in height. Then cut biscuits out of the dough, using scraps to re-form dough until ¾ inches high and cutting biscuit shapes until dough scraps are gone.
Add biscuits to a parchment lined baking sheet and freeze for 10 minutes. Then brush the tops of the biscuits with melted butter and baked for 10 minutes. Flip the baking sheet around and continue to baking for another 10 minutes. Remove from the oven and let the biscuits cool for 10 minutes (they're still cooking on the inside!)
Then you're done! Cut your biscuits and lather with butter and roasted strawberries! And there you have it. The most perfect honey buttermilk biscuits you ever did see 🙂
