Buttermilk drop biscuits with swirled cinnamon sugar and coconut served with cinnamon and orange butter. It’s something new, super easy, and so delicious you can serve for breakfast or brunch on Christmas Day. I guarantee you will hear nothing but compliments from your family and guests. 🙂 Thanksgiving came to pass; and the day after Thanksgiving mark the opening of Christmas shopping and decorating. Everyone is busy getting ready for Christmas holidays. Some have their homes already adorned with Christmas lights and ornaments. Some are on the lookout for new ideas and recipes to serve during holiday season. Well, you have come to the right place for a new recipe. 🙂 My son is sick today, so I delayed all my errands and stayed home all day to tend to him. Since I stayed indoors the entire day, I decided to bake something. I first thought of baking a new cheesecake flavor, but I wasn’t that motivated. Something delicious that my family can’ t find anywhere else for an early meal on Christmas day was what I had in mind. My children love to eat something with milk for breakfast. Maybe a continental breakfast with fruits and scones. The common food to serve for breakfast or brunch during a holiday get together. However, I wanted to serve something else other than scones. I was going through our pantry when I saw the baking mix flour that’s been begging to be used. Biscuits? Nope. Then cinnamon came to mind and maybe something sweet. I thought of all kinds of ingredients, but the cinnamon and coconut conquered my attention.
- 2 cups unbromated buttermilk baking mix flour
- 2/3 cup plus 1/8 cup fresh milk or Evaporated milk
- 3 tablespoons melted butter or melted cold pressed extra virgin coconut oil, cooled
- 1/2 cup sweetened coconut flakes
- zest of 1 orange (optional)
- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1 tablespoon cinnamon
- Preheat oven to 450 degrees with rack in the center.
- In a small bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Mix until well combined. Set aside.
- In a separate medium bowl, combine baking mix, milk, coconut oil, orange zest, and coconut flakes. Mix well.
- Add 1 tablespoon of the sugar mixture. Fold in the dough three times. Then add 2 more tablespoons of the sugar mixture and mix just until you have a swirl effect. Do not over mix. Save the remaining mixture for the butter mixture.
- Scoop a spoonful of the batter and drop onto lightly greased baking sheet.
- Bake for 10-12 minutes* or until golden brown. Serve warm with Cinnamon Orange Butter (recipe follows).
*Note: Baking time varies depending on the equipment you use. Make the necessary adjustment.
- 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, softened at room temperature
- Remaining sugar mixture
- zest of 1 orange
Combine all ingredients and whisk until well mixed. Spread on warm drop biscuits.
You can add nuts, chocolate chips, candy cane, or your favorite ingredients if you wish.

Hi there, Anna! I will have to bake again and drop some off to your home if you live nearby. 🙂 My family ate most of the biscuits and left only one for me. It was so delicious, especially with the cinnamon orange butter. I was glad my family only left one for me, otherwise, I would have consumed more carbs. Thank you for the visit and compliment. It’s much appreciated. My son is a little bit better today. Thank you. Have a great day! 🙂
Say hello to the rest of your familly! They must feel lucky to have you as their mother! 🙂
I will, Anna. Thank you. Yes, they know it, especially my youngest. He thanks and compliments my cooking every time. I’m really glad you stopped by. Have a great one! 🙂
