These 7 Up Biscuits are one of the easiest and fluffiest biscuit recipes around and I made them even easier! Three ingredients, one bowl, no knead and no cut means no messy fingers.
I’m sure you’ve seen this recipe for 7 UP Biscuits all over the internet. I’m not going to reinvent the wheel here, my recipe still uses the same simple ingredients, but I am going to share with you a way to make these WAY easier!
In fact, these 7 UP Biscuits are the only reason I keep these three ingredients on hand at all times. I occasionally use sour cream in my favorite banana bread recipe, but other than that we don’t use it much around here. My oldest loves to drink lemon lime soda, but we don’t keep it in the house and instead save it for a treat or if we go out to dinner.
And y’all know I would never use Bisquick in my pancakes… and if you do, PLEASE stop reading this post right now and go print off my Classic Pancake recipe. Seriously, the fluffiest homemade pancakes ever and they’re just as easy as making from a box (but a million times better).

How to Make Biscuits with Bisquick and 7 Up
- Combine Bisquick, 7 Up, and sour cream in a medium bowl.

- Using a large cookie scoop, scoop the biscuit dough into the muffin tin cups.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes.
Keep an eye on these Bisquick biscuits while baking. Mine are done closer to 10 minutes, but sometimes I rotate the pan and cook them a minute more.
You want the peaks on the top to be just starting to turn golden brown. If you over-bake these Bisquick drop biscuits, the bottoms will burn easily.
Our Favorite Biscuit Toppings

Tips for Making 7 Up Biscuits with Bisquick
The secret to making these super easy 7 UP Biscuits with Bisquick is to use a cookie scoop. That’s right, not only are these no knead biscuits, but they’re also no cut biscuits. This saves so many steps (flouring your surface, kneading, rolling, cutting out) and makes them one bowl biscuits as well! I use my largest cookie scoop, you can find the exact one here.
It’s taken me a few tries to get the scoop ratio down to make perfect, uniform biscuits. The trick is to use a very rounded scoop. Don’t scrape the scoop flat against the side of the bowl like you would making cookies. These drop biscuits should be about the size of a small golf ball or ping pong ball before baking.
To evenly distribute the melted butter amongst the muffin cups, use a 1 teaspoon measuring spoon — it almost works out perfectly, but you will have just a bit extra. Do your best to distribute that remaining less than 1 tsp between the 12 muffin tin cups, but don’t stress about it too much. You want a nice puddle of butter in each spot.
