When you end up with milk in the fridge that has gone sour you don't have to automatically dump it down the drain.
And by sour I don't mean really old milk that has gone chunky and lumpy….just milk that is a bit past its prime and has developed that sour smell.
One of the easiest ways to use it up is with this Sour Milk Biscuits Recipe. They're yummy!
These sour milk biscuits are extremely easy to make. They only use 6 ingredients! From start to finish they'll only take you about 20 minutes to make them from scratch and have them on the table.
For our recipe we used vegetable oil, but you can use shortening or melted butter if you prefer.
Sour Milk Biscuits Recipe
2 cups flour
2 Tbsp sugar
3 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/3 cup vegetable oil
2/3 cup sour milk
How to make sour milk biscuits:
Heat oven to 475 degrees.
Combine all of the dry ingredients. Fill a 1 cup measuring cup 1/3 full with oil. Fill the rest of the cup with milk – don't stir! Add wet ingredients to dry. Mix until all is moistened and knead a couple of times.
For rolled biscuits: Roll out the dough to 1/2″ thick. (It's easiest to do between two pieces of plastic wrap.) Use a biscuit cutter or rim of a small glass to cut biscuits. Place on ungreased baking sheet.
For drop biscuits: Drop “blobs” of about 1/4 cup dough directly onto an ungreased baking sheet.
Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly golden brown.
Can I make these biscuits with fresh milk?
I've been asked this question and the answer is YES! If you want the taste to be similar, you can make the milk into a sour milk/buttermilk alternative by stirring in 2 teaspoons of white vinegar into the milk and letting it sit for 5 minutes before using it in the recipe.
How do I prevent milk from going sour?
If you're stocking up on more milk than you'll be able to use before it turns sour, you can freeze some of it! Check out our helpful tips on how to freeze milk.
