National Buttermilk Biscuit Day!

US and World

(WIAT) — Today is not only May 14, but it is also National Buttermilk Biscuit Day. It’s a time to celebrate and appreciate the buttermilk biscuit.

 Here’s a little trivia for you: Buttermilk Biscuits first emerged in the American south in the early part of the 19th century. They are now included in many breakfasts.

According to the National Day Calendar, buttermilk biscuits are often referred to as “quick bread,”because they do not require time to rise before baking. A typical buttermilk biscuit contains flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, butter and buttermilk. 

To observe National Buttermilk Biscuit Day simply make your favorite biscuit recipe and serve them with your favorite pairings.
