National Buttermilk Biscuit DayNational Buttermilk Biscuit Day

Celebrate National Buttermilk Biscuit Day on May 14th. Made with flour, salt, butter, baking soda, baking powder, and of course buttermilk, the yeastless dough gained biscuits the title of quick bread as they do not need to be left to rise before baking. 

The simplicity of ingredients and the convenience of their ability to be cooked immediately made buttermilk biscuits a quick favorite among common Americans in the years leading up to the American Civil War. Biscuits also became preferred over other types of bread as they are much more absorbent, making it easier to sop up gravy and enjoy every last drop of a meal. 

Eventually, the pairing of biscuits and gravy became a culinary phenomenon on its own. With time also came added convenience: Ballard and Ballard patented refrigerated canned biscuits in 1931. 

While biscuits can be found in most grocery stores throughout the US, they hold a special place in many southern states where they are often served as sides or as a part of breakfast. 

Grab a can of ready to bake biscuits from your local grocery store or try your hand at making your own from scratch this May 14th for National Buttermilk Biscuit Day.
