7-Up Biscuits Ingredients: Butter, Baking Mix, Lemon Lime Soda and Sour Cream


These biscuits only need four ingredients, and you might already have them on hand. Try them out and put the local diner out of business.

Butter: Biscuits wouldn’t be biscuits without butter, both melted on top and mixed into the dough. This ingredient brings the essential fats for an extra-moist breakfast staple.

Baking Mix: By using a pre-made baking mix, such as Bisquick, you can cut down on a lot of measuring and mixing. The factory already did it for you!

Don’t worry though, these will still count as homemade!

Lemon-lime Soda:  This is the ingredient that gives the recipe its name! Lemon-lime soda such as Sprite or 7-Up not only brings a sweet flavor but offers a light and airy texture to the dough.

Sour Cream:  All good recipes call for sour cream. This ingredient brings moisture and depth to the flavor of your biscuits. This is what gives them a quality taste!

Tips For the Best Biscuits

No one has time for trial and error, so these tips from the experts will ensure that your first batch is a winner.

As with all baked goods, ratios are incredibly important. When measuring out your Bisquick, be sure to use the scoop and sweep method.

Take your dry good measuring cup and scoop out a rounded cup full.

Then use your finger or a kitchen knife to scrape off the excess until it is perfectly level.

If you find your dough to be too sticky, you can chill the dough in the refrigerator.

The cold dough tends to be less sticky than warmer dough and is easier to work with.

If you don’t have time to chill the dough, you can also lightly flour your own hands to prevent the dough from sticking.

This will place a layer of dry flour between your hands and the biscuits.

This recipe calls for melted butter to be added to the baking dish.

In a microwave-safe dish, heat the butter in 20-second intervals, stirring in between. Continue until the stick is melted.

You can cut the biscuits in many ways Traditionally, biscuits are round. You can use a biscuit cutter for this or the rim of a cup.

If your pan is short on space, make square biscuits by slicing the dough directly into the pan.

Once you have pressed the dough into the dish, cut eight biscuits using a tic-tac-toe pattern.

Soft and Fluffy 7-Up Biscuits

What Does the 7-Up Do?

The 7-Up provides a lift for the biscuits. Since they do not have yeast to rise, the 7-Up gives them some spring in their step.

The carbonation and simple sugars work with the ingredients in the baking mix to create light and fluffy biscuits without any rise or wait time.

Since the soda replaces milk in traditional biscuit recipes, the sour cream makes up for the creaminess the soda lacks.

Once the biscuits are baked, you can hardly taste the soda inside these scrumptious little biscuits.

Can I Substitute Sprite or Ginger Ale?

Absolutely! This recipe works well with any lemon-lime soda. The flavoring is very mild and all yield a sweet and fluffy biscuit.

Do be sure to stick to the lemon-lime family though. Sodas with caramel flavoring or other flavors will affect the color and taste of the biscuit.

But the options are limitless! Use whatever lemon-lime soda you have on hand, or your family prefers. Even Mountain Dew could work in this dish.

Prep time


Cooking time






  • 1/2 cup 1/2 butter

  • 4 1/2 cups 4 1/2 baking mix (such as Bisquick)

  • 1 cup 1 lemon-lime soda (such as 7-Up)

  • 1 cup 1 sour cream


  • Preheat oven to 425 degrees Fahrenheit. If you would like, you can place the baking dish with the butter in the oven now. This will allow the butter to melt. You can also melt the butter in the microwave.
  • Mix the sour cream, lemon-lime soda, and baking mix together until it is well combined. The dough should be sticky to touch. Turn the dough out onto a well-floured surface and press down until it is about 1-inch thick.
  • Use a biscuit cutter or glass to cut out round biscuits. Or, press the dough into the pan and cut out square biscuits.
  • Place the biscuits into the baking dish with the melted butter.
  • Bake the biscuits in the preheated oven for 10-12 minutes. They should be golden brown on top.
  • Enjoy your delicious, homemade 7-Up Biscuits.
