History of Bojangles

Bojangles is a fast-food restaurant that is primarily found in southeastern states. They serve primarily chicken…and biscuits! Because their biscuits are so well-loved, most items on their menu incorporate their biscuits in some fashion. The restaurant opened its doors in 1977 and has continued to thrive and expand throughout the years. 

Bojangles Biscuits

The restaurant is said to make their biscuits fresh every day and serve them while they are fresh from the oven. Some say that they have been known to sell one thousand biscuits in some eight-hour time periods. If you are a lover of these biscuits, then you are going to love being able to make your own amazing biscuits from scratch, whenever you wish! 

Copycat Bojangles Cinnamon Biscuits

Making your own copycat Bojangles Cinnamon Biscuits from scratch is surprisingly easy to do. There are three sections involved when making these biscuits. The different portions include making your own biscuit dough from scratch, creating your cinnamon mixture, and topping them off with some tasty icing. I am so excited to share this biscuit recipe with you today, while it is not the recipe that Bojangles uses, this recipe shows you how to make the most amazing light and fluffy biscuits, that you will never want to use any other recipe, ever again. 

What You’ll Need: 


All-purpose flour
Baking powder

Cinnamon Topping

Brown sugar


Powdered sugar
Vanilla (optional)
Butter (optional)

How to Make These Marvelous Biscuits

For the biscuits:

To make the biscuits you will want to combine the flour, salt, and baking powder together in your mixing bowl and mix well. Then cut in your butter and mix until your chunks remaining are about pea-sized. Add in your milk and stir until your dough begins to come together. Roll your dough out onto a lightly floured surface, but out your biscuits. Place them onto a greased cookie sheet. Set aside while you prepare your cinnamon filling. 

For the cinnamon filling:

Combine your butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar in a microwave-safe bowl, then microwave for 30 seconds, and stir to combine. Scoop about one tablespoon full into the center of each biscuit. Bake. 

For the glaze:

While your biscuits are baking, combine in a small mixing bowl your powdered sugar, cinnamon, and milk. Stir. If you want it to be more solid, add a bit more powdered sugar. Drizzle on top once your biscuits are finished baking.

Time: 22 minutes
Yield: 8 biscuits
Number Of Ingredients: 8



2 cups all-purpose flour
4 tsp baking powder
½ tsp salt
4 Tbsp butter
¾ cup milk

Cinnamon Filling

2 Tbsp butter
1 ½ tsp cinnamon
4-5 heaping Tbsp brown sugar

Vanilla Glaze

¾ cup powdered sugar
2-3 Tbsp milk
¼ tsp cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla (optional)
1 Tbsp butter, melted (optional)


Step 1

In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt. Stir together. Add butter. Cut until very fine. Pour in milk, mix until the dough begins to pull together. Roll dough out onto a lightly floured surface. 

Step 2

Once your dough is rolled out onto a lightly floured surface, cut out your biscuits. Please note for best results, you will want your dough to be about ½ inch thick. Place onto a greased cookie sheet. Squish the centers so that they look almost like droughts. 

Step 3

In a microwave-safe bowl, combine butter, cinnamon, and brown sugar. Microwave for 30 seconds. Remove and stir. Scoop about a tablespoon of the mixture into the center of each biscuit. 

Step 4

Bake at 425 for 12 minutes, or until your biscuits begin to turn a golden brown. Remove and allow to cool while you mix the icing together. 

Step 5

Mix powdered sugar, milk, cinnamon, and vanilla together in a small bowl. Drizzle on top of your fresh biscuits. Serve and enjoy! 


For your glaze, the melted butter, and vanilla are optional but do help to improve the overall flavor of the icing.

Possible Modifications

There are several different variations on our copycat biscuit recipe you could choose to make if you wanted. These all include the basic biscuit recipe included above with slight modifications. 

Cinnamon Drop Biscuits with Vanilla Glaze

Some people prefer drop biscuits over the kind you cut out. If you are one that prefers this, you can adapt the above recipe to make drop biscuits, simply by increasing your milk content to 1 cup. You may also desire to increase your butter by 2 tablespoons as well. Then once your batter is created, you will simply scoop it out and drop the scoops on your baking sheet.

Copycat Cinnamon Biscuits

There are several different ways you may choose to incorporate the cinnamon mixture into your biscuits. While our recipe above instructs you to create an indent in the biscuit dough then add the mixture there, you could also layer your dough, and add cinnamon layers in each biscuit. Another idea is to use a muffin tin to bake your biscuits, before adding your biscuits though, add some butter, brown sugar, and cinnamon to the bottom of the tin, then top with your biscuit. This essentially will create an upside-down cake effect with your biscuits.

Cinnamon-Pecan Biscuit Twists

Making cinnamon pecan twists is yet another option. To make these you will prepare your dough as stated above, then cut your biscuits into long narrow strips instead of round cutouts. Add a layer of your cinnamon mixture and twist the dough together before baking. 

Apple-Cinnamon Biscuits

For all of you apple lovers out there, try peeling and chopping up some apples to kneed into your biscuit dough before cutting it out. Then when you cut out your biscuits it is already inside your dough. Bake according to the instructions above. 

Cinnamon Raisin Biscuits

Another great variation to this recipe is to add raisins to your biscuit dough as you are mixing it together. This will allow you to enjoy the nice addition of raisins in your creation. 

Gluten-Free Cinnamon Biscuits {Dairy-Free Option}

To make gluten-free cinnamon biscuits, you can simply use your favorite gluten-free all-purpose flour. For best results, we recommend that you use flour such as King Arthur, or Pillsbury. If your flour does not already contain it, you will also want to include ½ tsp xanthan gum. Otherwise, you can prepare as above. 

Dairy-Free Baking

To make this recipe dairy-free, you may substitute kinds of milk such as almond milk for regular milk. The proportions will remain the same. 

Copycat Bo-Berry Biscuits

You may also want to make some copycat Bo-Berry biscuits. These are biscuits that include blueberries. To make these simply add blueberries to your dough before cutting it out. This will allow you to enjoy the amazing taste of blueberries mixed into these delicious biscuits.
