You'd never believe that these biscuits have only four ingredients and one of them is soda! They can be whipped up in no time and come out light and fluffy with a decadent flavor.

I'm the original submitter for this recipe and I noticed that there's a typo. There should only be 1/2 cup of 7-up. That's why so many batches are ending up too wet! Sorry about that. I hope it helps! Read More

This recipe as written is a soupy sticky mess! Uses too much soda and butter goes in the baking pan not the bowl! I had to throw out this recipe batch and lookup the Pinterest recipe to have a successful outcome. Pinterest recipe; 2 cups Bisquik 1/2 cup sour cream 1/2 cup 7up mixed together and turned out on a floured surface - pour 1/2 cup melted butter in a baking dish then drop in the biscuits. Bake at 425 to 450 for 12 - 15 minutes depending on your oven. Read More

When I made these biscuits, I used a homemade baking mix and I dropped the batter in greased muffin tins instead of a greased baking sheet. This is a nice variation on Grandma's Baking Powder Biscuits--I served them with Lasagna Roll Ups and the family seemed to like them. My husband says they're good "sopping up" biscuits. Read More

I have just recently discovered these delicious biscuits. I made with diet soda and fat-free sour cream so quick and easy. I keep a can of soda on hand so I can quickly put this together for dinner. Thanks brighteyes_22 for sharing. Read More

I have never in my life made such a light fluffy biscuit. I have tried and tried and only been able to turn out hockey pucks until this recipe. Two suggestions. As many others mentioned cut the amount of 7-up. I had been given another version of this recipe and after reading the comments decided to go with a half cup of 7-Up measuremment from that recipe instead a full cup mentioned here. All the other measurements were exactly the same. PERFECT BISCUITS. Second don't just butter the bottom of the biscuit dish. Butter the tops of the biscuits as well. It gives the finished biscuit a nice golden color. They're fabulous!! Read More

I tried these this past weekend and they are great. I cut the amount of 7up down to 1/2 cup. I melted the butter in the pan that I was going to cook the biscuits in instead of adding to the dough mixture. I patted out the dough on a lightly dusted surface (with bisquick) to fit my 9 in square pan and used a biscuit cutter to cut my biscuits. I then added the cut biscuits to the melted butter in the 9 in pan. This is definitely a keeper. I think next time I make these I am going to pat out dough to fit my 9 in square pan and use a pizza cutter and cut into 9 pieces. Thanks for sharing this great recipes. Read More

Be sure to correct the recipe to 1/2 cup lemon lime soda (7up); biscuits are light and fluffy. Dust your board and top of do then give it a couple gentle kneads and press into a rectangle. Use a pizza cutter to cut into 12 biscuits. Once you put into the buttered pan (I used a 10X13 dish. Brush with additional melted butter before and after and these are a family favorite. Read More
