  1. I used the same ingredients and amounts, but used a muffin pan to bake them in. It made about 10 biscuits, filling each cup half full because they do puff up quite a bit. I increased baking time to 16 minutes so that the top would brown. They were amazing, and almost identical to Popeye's biscuits, though to truly achieve that New Orleans flair, you need to brush melted butter on the top before baking. Thank you for sharing this one!
  2. These are literally the best biscuit's I've ever had omg. I used Jiffy's baking mix instead of bisquick. Tip - baste your biscuits with a mix of melted butter, paprika, and Lawry's seasoned salt for them to taste almost exactly like popeyes biscuits, if not better. (:
  3. I made these just as written and they turned out fantastic! Some of the best most fluffy biscuits I've ever had. You can't taste the sprite at all. For a three ingredient recipe, this one is definitely a keeper!
  4. Tastes best using Pioneer Buttermilk Baking Mix instead of Bisquik!
  5. Very very good biscuit, however not quite Popeyes. I was suprised at the light texture. I will make these a lot! Thanks!


  1. Very good biscuits even though I had to make some substitutions. I used regular sour cream and club soda instead of sprite. Very good, and similiar to Popeye's. Very wet dough, be sure to thoroughly flour your work surface, hands and rolling pin. Made a double batch, felt it doubled well. Will try and freeze a batch and see how they come out. Thanks for the recipe.
  2. I needed a fast biscuit recipe for Easter dinner and since I didn't do my usual in-depth planning, I was looking for simple and uncomplicated. This is it! I don't know about copycat and didn't choose the recipe for that, but the total of only 3 ingredients and directions that looked effortless was why I picked this one. I used 'homemade bisquick', but I stuck to the ingredient list and my guests loved these. I would like to experiment next time and use yoghurt instead of lite sour cream, since sour cream isn't an ingredient I typically have around, and I'd like to try it as a dumpling on chicken stew, since it's so soft. The dough was VERY soft, almost a thick batter, I added more flour and wound up just doing drop biscuits as it looked like making cut biscuits with such a soft dough was going to take more effort than I had available to give. I've passed the recipe along to two other people since making it, a great last minute idea.
