  1. In a large bowl mix together the buttermilk, oil, and mayonnaise. Gradually stir in the flour and mix until all ingredients are combined.
  2. Turn dough out onto a well floured surface. If dough is sticky knead in a little extra flour. Pat the dough out to about a 1/2-inch thickness. Use a biscuit cutter to cut dough into pieces. Place into an oiled cast iron skillet. Allow biscuits to rest in the pan for 10 minutes.
  3. Bake in a preheated 425 degree F (220 degrees C) until nicely browned, about 20 minutes.

I used melted butter instead of vegetable oil. That was the only change I made. I dropped these into greased muffin tins instead of messing with cutting them so they wouldn't have a chance to turn out tough. These turned out so good--flaky and really just........YUMMY.

I have been making biscuits by this recipe since I was in elementary school and it works every time if you do it right! You need to use SELF-RISING, SOFT WHEAT flour, which is not as commonly available elsewhere as it is in the South. Good brands are White Lily or Hudson Cream -- NOT a hard wheat flour like Pillsbury,

Great recipe, especially when you need something in a pinch! I added a tsp. of garlic powder and used melted butter vs. veg oil cutting the amount in half. I baked these in muffin cups lined with paper liners sprayed with a little Pam which made things a lot easier!
