Paula Deen's Angel Biscuits

Celebrity chef Paula Deen created her own version of an Angel Biscuit recipe, featured in her 2011 cookbook, Paula Deen’s Southern Cooking Bible.[1] The recipe calls for yeast, which produces a biscuit that is lighter in texture than traditional buttermilk biscuits. The Paula Deen Angel Biscuits recipe is simple to prepare and can be doubled to accommodate a larger group.[1]. These biscuits can be served warm as a side dish to any meal, or used as a starter to favorite holiday recipes.

How to Make Buttermilk Biscuits

Chef Jon Jay guides viewers through a traditional buttermilk biscuit recipe. The recipe is similar to Paula Deen’s Angel Biscuits, but does not call for yeast.


  • If you do not have buttermilk available, you can prepare a substitute by combining 1 cup milk with 1 tablespoon lemon juice or vinegar, and allowing the mixture to stand for 5 minutes.[5]
  • The biscuits can be served with butter, honey or fruit preserves as a breakfast side dish. Alternatively, they can be topped with ham, bacon, sausage, or eggs for a hearty breakfast sandwich.[6]
