Today is my first post for the Sunday Supper Movement! My friend, Lauren of Sew You Think You Can Cook, has been a part of it for a few months and talked me into joining. Today’s theme is fall flavors.
These Sweet Potato Buttermilk Biscuits would be a great breakfast or brunch addition to the upcoming holiday tables. Roasted sweet potato is mashed until smooth and mixed into a biscuit dough with buttermilk and Autumn spices (cinnamon, ginger, cloves). Honey is used in place of sugar to add that extra bit of warmth. I served the sweet potato biscuits warm from the oven with apple butter and an additional drizzle of honey. Butter or jam would also work well. Kelli of The Corner Kitchen mentioned using them as a base for a leftover Thanksgiving turkey sandwich.
This recipe is originally from Food52 and uses pumpkin puree instead of sweet potato.
I roasted the sweet potato whole in a 350 degree F oven until it was easily pierced all the way through with a fork. I scooped out the flesh and mashed it until smooth, saving the extra for Claire.
I thought this would be a good way to get Evan to try some sweet potato, but he wasn’t a fan. After taking a bite, he said “trashcan please”. Oh well. I thought they were delicious and so did Chad. I think Evan’s issue was the additional spices. He doesn’t like gingerbread either. Claire didn’t get to try them due to the honey, but she did enjoy the leftover roasted sweet potato.

2 cups all purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon ground ginger
pinch ground cloves
1/3 cup mashed sweet potato
6 tablespoons honey
3/4 cup buttermilk, cold
4 tablespoons unsalted butter, chilled
Preheat oven to 425 degrees F. Line a large baking sheet with parchment or lightly grease.
In a large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, ginger, and cloves.
In a medium bowl, whisk together sweet potato, honey, and buttermilk until well combined.
Cut the chilled butter into the flour mixture using a dough blender, two forks, or your fingers until the texture becomes coarse with no pieces larger than a pea.
Make a well in the center and pour in all but 1/4 cup of the buttermilk mixture. Mix just until dough comes together. If needed, add the remaining 1/4 cup. The biscuit dough should be on the sticky side.
On a well floured surface, pat the dough into a rectangle, flouring the top as needed to keep it from sticking to your hands. Fold the dough in half and turn so the folded edge is facing you. Pat it into a rectangle again, flouring as needed. Fold in half, turn, and repeat one more time.
Pat into a rectangle again, 1 inch thick. Use a 2 1/2 inch wide round biscuit cutter to cut out the biscuits, being careful not to twist the cutter and you press down. Place the biscuits 1-2 inches apart on prepared baking sheet.
Gently press together the scraps and cut to form additional biscuits.
Bake in preheated oven until cooked through and bottoms are golden brown, 10-13 minutes.
Serve warm from the oven.
