These easy to bake and quick buns are nice for tea time to snack on. They are crunchy when you take the bite and soft and chewy inside. Very few ingredients are needed to prepare these buns. Why am I calling them buns when I have titled them as biscuits. Well that's the confusion, Americans call bread rolls as biscuits which was clarified by one of the co-bloggers. Call them biscuits or buns or whatever name you fancy but these are really nice. 

The original recipe was prepared using 7-up but I made it using Sprite. You can make them with lemon soda drink. I would soon want to try making it with a cola drink too. 

Here is the recipe..

Makes 4 small buns

Ingredients :
Bisquick or Biscuit mix - 1 cup (Make your own at home, see notes)
Sprite - 45ml (Use more or less as required, substitute with any lemon soda)
Sour Cream - 1/4 cup (Substitute with sour yogurt)
Butter - salted, 2 Tablespoons melted (Substitute with unsalted butter and add some salt)

Method :
1. Preheat oven to 200C.
2. In a mixing bowl add the bisquick mix, sprite and sour cream. Mix well with a fork to combine. 
3. On a slightly floured surface knead the dough about 10 times. 
4. Add some bisquick if dough is sticky or add some sprite if dough is too dry.
5. Shape the dough into balls of desired size and flatten them with your palms.
6. Place on an ungreased baking sheet.
7. Brush with salted melted butter and place them in the oven.
8. After about 7 minutes brush again with the melted butter and bake for about 10 minutes in total or till they turn golden.
9. Brush one last time with butter soon after removing from oven. 
10. Best served warm.

Enjoy Sprite Biscuits

Notes :
Bisquick Substitute :
For every one cup of Bisquick mix substitute as below :
All Purpose Flour - 1 cup
Baking Powder - 1 1/2 Teaspoons
Salt - 1/2 Teaspoon
Cooking Oil or Melted Butter - 1 Tablespoon

Method :
1. In a mixing bowl add all purpose flour, baking powder and salt. Mix well to combine.
2. Evenly pour oil or melted butter and mix well to combine. 
3. Store in air tight container in a cool and dry place. Stays good for upto 4 months. I would recommend making small quantities as and when required as it is a easy method and avoid making large quantities and storing.
