Biscuits in the Omnia Stove Top Baking Oven

While you can certainly make traditional rolled biscuits in the Omnia Stove Top Baking Oven, drop biscuits are much easier and there’s a lot less mess to clean up.  It only takes about 5 minutes to mix them up and put them in the pan, then 10 minutes to bake. (Read more about the Omnia and how to use it here; you can buy one from Sea Dog Boating Solutions here.)

The tops won’t get as brown as biscuits baked in a conventional oven, but they taste every bit as good!

The recipe below makes 8 biscuits — about the most you can make in the Omnia at one time.  You can make fewer if you wish.  Just cut the recipe in half for 4; there’s no adjustment to the baking time or instructions.

Drop Biscuits

Makes 8 biscuits

Total time:  15 minutes

  • 2 cups flour
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup canola oil or vegetable oil

Mix all the ingredients together in a small bowl.  Batter will be thick but not stiff.  As flour can vary a bit, add a few drops of milk if it’s too stiff.

Preheat the base of the Omnia over high heat for three minutes while doing the next step.

Grease the food pan with a little vegetable oil or dab of butter or margarine.  Drop the biscuits by equal spoonfuls, spacing them out evenly around the pan.  Place the lid on the pan.

Quick-Biscuits-squarePlace the pan on the Omnia base and leave the burner set at high for one minute.  Then turn the burner down to medium and bake for 9 minutes.  The tops of the biscuits will not be brown, but they will look cooked.  If you’re not sure if they’re done, quickly stick a knife into the center of one — there should not be any raw dough on it when removed.

Serve hot!
