Mountain Dew Biscuits

I have to admit something, I LOVE Mountain Dew.

Regular. Baja Blast. Voltage.

Basically all of them and yes, my kids love it too (although we did limit their consumption because of the caffeine).

And that is why I decided it was time we gave a new recipe a try – Homemade Mountain Dew Biscuits.

And yes, in case you are wondering, these are actually made with Mountain Dew.

These end up being a delicious, puffy biscuit that pairs well with butter, jam or even honey. Trust me, your family is going to love these.

I recommend eating these biscuits fresh out of the oven, but you can store them in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 2 days.

Can I eat these warm or cold?

These are best served warm from the oven. You can reheat these in the microwave for 10-20 seconds.

What are substitutions that I can make?

You can use any brand of all purpose baking mix. Even store brands will work.

You can also use any type of lemon lime flavored soda. Sprite or even ginger ale will work.

What size portion scoop did you use?

I used a 2.5 oz portion scoop.

Pour half of the melted butter in a 9×13 baking dish and top the prepared dough. I use an ice cream scoop for this so all of the biscuits are the same size.

    I’ve had this recipe saved for a month and finally decided to make them.
    They are easy to make and not dry, so that was good. But they are OK, not great. I don’t know that I will make again.

  2. Can this recipe be halved? I don’t need a large amount.

  3. Charlotte Francischine says:

    Made these for years … super good just remember not to overmix the dough. Once the mix is wet. Your done! Novermicing makes them tough

  4. I am going to try the gluten fee Bisquick!Fingers crossed!

  5. What can be substituted for sour cream since I don’t have any?

  6. What do you mean by “top the prepared dough”?

    1. Sorry, it means you put half the melted butter into the bottom of the pan and the rest on top of the dough when it’s in the pan (see the second image underneath for what I mean) 🙂

  7. These buscuits looks so good

  8. Can Mt. Dew Zero Sugar be used

  9. Jane Branch says:

    Can Sprite or Sierra Mist be substituted for Mountain Dew?

    1. People certainly use 7-Up for biscuits like this so yes, that is totally an option. It will just give a bit of a different taste 🙂

  10. They turned out pretty good~ kids were excited bc of the Mountain Dew!

  11. Okay, Where’s the mountain Dew Gravy. (lol)

    1. Lol that is not a bad idea at all. Let me see if I can’t figure a recipe out 🙂

  12. Would sauage gravy be good with these biscuits??

  13. Vixenvena says:

    I added pineapple, green food coloring, coconut and concentrated the mountain dew so I could fit in more Mt Dew because you can never have enough Dew.

  14. 5 stars
    This recipe is so simple to make even you’ve never made biscuits before. My kids loved them for breakfast! So soft and fluffy you don’t even need to add additional jelly.

  15. Joseph Amendolea says:

    Actually I bet you could probably use just about any kind of soda pop. Pepsi might even work esp. wild cherry Pepsi. Root beer biscuits might be interesting too. I’d have to use whatever I can find in diet though as I’m trying to limit my sugar intake. 🙂

    You can also use plain fat-free Greek yogurt if you’re trying to limit fat intake.

  16. When you use pop to make biscuits, do they have any of the pop flavor in them? I LOVE Mtn Dew, also. It’d be awesome if the biscuits taste a little like it. I kinda wonder about making like Dr. Pepper or other, dark pops biscuits…

  17. Nancy Shontz says:

    Can you use Diet Mt. Dew?

  18. katie swihart says:

    Can I use diet Mt Dew?

  19. Judy Cardin says:

    Can I make this with diet dew??

  20. sheila elaine christian says:

    can diet Dew be used?

  21. Sylvia E Alvarado says:

    Can I substitute a gluten free biscuit mix?

    1. I haven’t tried that, but I believe you can. If you give it a shot, please let me know how it turns out!

  22. Ellen Forrest says:

    Will the caffeine in md still have effect in biscuits?

    1. After doing some research, I believe the answer is yes. The temperatures achieved in cooking/baking (as like in this recipe) are insufficient to break down the caffeine molecule. Therefore, the caffeine would still be present.

    2. @Ellen Forrest, Think of it this way; Coffee has a significant amount of caffeine in it even when it is boiling or percolating. Chocolate has caffeine in it even when it is hot chocolate. It’s only logical that Mountain Dew still retains its caffeine, even when it’s cooked.

  23. Lila Eversole says:

    Can I use plain flour?

    1. No. Unfortunately, regular flour does not rise like self-rising flour and therefore, it would not turn out the same.

    2. Betty lowe says:

      @Brittanie, when making my own Bisquick mix can I use plain flour

      1. Yes. It looks like when making your own homemade Bisquick, you can use all purpose flour 🙂
