Looking for the absolute best gluten free southern style buttermilk biscuits?  Then you’ll love this recipe!  I’ve been perfecting it for a while now.  If there is one thing southerners know, Y’all, it’s a good buttermilk biscuit!  However, baking one that is gluten-free & virtuous (aka healthy for the entire family with food intolerances)…  Well, that’s a lil’ more challenging!

You know I would have never considered myself obsessed with biscuits.  Although, I was born & raised in Metro Atlanta.  But that year we went completely Ketogenic, it was the one food I really missed.  I had a decent recipe for bread that I found edible.  I developed something I called a “biscuit”.  However, nothing like these delicate, fluffy, flaky OMGosh… You’d NEVER know in a million years it is a Gluten-Free Southern-Style Buttermilk Biscuit.

Once I thoroughly muscle tested my entire family’s grains, starches & alternative flours.  I discovered the right combination of flours that were “Most Virtuous” for the whole family.  This helped develop a starting point for knowing what we “should be” eating.  It has revolutionized my cooking & baking!  Ever since I have been trying to prove out that it is a cup for cup swap for any regular wheat recipe.  So far they have all worked & are delicious!

My family really can’t successfully use any of the gluten-free all-purpose flours on the market which I discuss in detail in the post below…  Plus, my blend is so much more nutritious than most of the other stuff out there!

A Tender Southern-Style Buttermilk Biscuit Only Gluten Free…  Really?

My first attempt ever baking a gluten-free southern-style buttermilk biscuit must have been about 15 years ago!  OMGosh…  Those could have been used as a hockey puck.  I think that was using Bette Hagman’s featherlight recipe!  “Featherlight”… my A$$ cause that experimentation must have cost a small fortune!  I think I even used good biscuit baking technique too.  But that was then this is now!

If you have never baked a biscuit in your life.  Or your last attempt failed miserably, I highly recommend you watch this video.  It will give you some good technique for making any type of Southern-Style Buttermilk Biscuit.  However, there are a few modifications for getting the most successful Gluten-Free version with my flour & steps.

Modifications For Making Successful Gluten Free Buttermilk Biscuits…

With regular wheat versions of southern-style buttermilk biscuits the folds are really important.  Also equally important is the temperature of your ingredients…  Mainly the Butter & Buttermilk should be as cold as possible.  Also you want in a very high oven like 475-500° at least for the first half of baking.  As a result, this builds the glutenous matrix and provides for a moist flaky tenderness.

However, since there is no “gluten matrix” this doesn’t apply to GF baking.  I still make my folds which isn’t about weaving the matrix but creating literal actual folds.  Conversely in the gluten free baking, you want to use less cold ingredients – Room temperature is optimal.  This allows time for the starches & fibers in the GF flours to soak up some of the moisture.  As would letting them rest for a time.  Therefore 10-15 minutes rest at room temp is great.  However, I don’t usually do this myself.  ‘Cuz when I’m making these gluten free southern style buttermilk biscuits, we usually want them like a half hour ago… LOL!
