This easy recipe for gluten free buttermilk drop biscuits is made from scratch using gluten free flour. These southern style biscuits are perfect to go with soup or a meal. I love to eat them warm with butter spread on them or for breakfast with jam.



2 1/2 cups Gluten Free Flour
3 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Sea Salt
1/4 tsp. Coarse Ground Black Pepper
1 1/2 cups Buttermilk
2 large Eggs


Preheat your oven to 375 degrees. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

In the bowl of your stand mixer add the gluten free flour, baking powder, salt, pepper, buttermilk and eggs. Beat together until all ingredients are incorporated. The dough will be slightly lumpy.

Using a spatula or tablespoon drop even portions of the dough onto the baking sheet leaving room for the biscuits to spread and rise. I make twelve generous sized biscuits with this recipe.

Bake the biscuits at 375 degrees for 15 minutes. The biscuits will be firm and lightly browned on the bottom when done.

If you would like to add some golden color to the top of the biscuits, turn your broiler on high and broil very briefly while watching the biscuits so they don't burn.


I add the pepper for a bit of flavor and spice in the biscuits. I you like your biscuits plain you can omit the black pepper.
