  • 2 ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons vegan butter, I use Earth Balance
  • 1 cup soy milk, plus more for brushing
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  • Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.
  • In a larger bowl combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Add the butter in small cubes and mix it in with the dough using your fingers until small pea-sized pieces have formed. Set aside.
  • In a small bowl whisk together the soy milk and the apple cider vinegar. Let it curdle for 5 minutes to make vegan buttermilk.
  • Create a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the buttermilk. Stir it together with a wooden spoon.
  • Once the dough comes together, turn it onto a floured surface and roll out to about ¾ inch thick. With a 4" circle cutter cut out biscuits and place them on the prepared baking sheet. Brush tops with extra soy milk and bake them for 12-15 minutes, until lightly golden brown.


Serving and Storing – Buttermilk biscuits make a great addition to any vegan breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Try them with vegan country gravy, vegan butter, or your favorite jam. Store these in an airtight container in a cool, dry area. Make sure you let them cool completely before placing them in a container to avoid condensation. You should eat them within 1 to 2 days of making them.
Recipe Tips
  1. Make sure you start preheating the oven as soon as you get started. These biscuits need to go into the oven hot so that they properly rise.
  2. Give the apple cider vinegar time to curdle the soy milk. This will usually take about 5 minutes.
  3. Don’t overcook the biscuits. They will become hard, burn, or become crumbly. Cook them just until they start to have a golden-brown color.
Frequently Asked Questions
  • What if I roll my biscuits out too flat? If you make the biscuits ½ inch thick, you can still bake them, just reduce the cook time slightly. They won’t be as thick when they finish baking if they are too thin.
  • What should I do with the scraps? You can form scraps into a ball and roll them out again to cut more biscuits. Be sure not to knead the dough when you form a ball, this can toughen the texture of the biscuits once they cook.
