Biscuits (from scratch or refrigerated)

solar oven biscuitsCook time: 1 to 1.5 hrs

Nothing beats fresh biscuits out of the oven with some butter. And better yet when made with the sun.

For refrigerated biscuits, place directly into the roaster and cover. Cook until golden brown.
Biscuits from scratch:
2 cups (457 g.) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon (5 g.) sugar
1 tablespoon (14 g.) baking powder
1 teaspoon (5 g.) salt
7 tablespoons (100 g.) butter, cubed (or alternative)
3/4 cup (176 ml.) milk or milk alternative

Preheat Sunflair® Oven. Set oven up outside with cooking chamber receiving full sun.

In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut in butter until it begins to looks like coarse meal.

Slowly stir milk into the middle of the mixture. Now, knead the dough with your fingers. Can add a little more milk if necessary. On a lightly floured surface, roll dough out to desired thickness. Cut biscuits out with a biscuit cutter or a juice glass dipped in flour. Repeat until all the dough is used.

Brush off the excess flour, and place biscuits into the un-greased roaster with lid.

Cook until golden brown.

Beer Bread

Beer Bread CompositeCook Time: 2 1/2 – 3 hrs
Serves 6 – 8

Beer bread is an easy and rewarding bread to make. It is a hearty bread, and when cooked in the Sunflair®, it won’t rise as much, but it will be moist and tender. The yeast in the beer makes the bread rise and butter is not required as it is steamed from the moisture of the beer. Thus, a healthier bread!

3 cups (686 g.) flour, sifted (measure, then sift)
3 teaspoons (14 g.) baking powder (omit if using self-rising flour)
1/2 teaspoon (2 g.) salt (omit if using self-rising flour)
1/2 cup (114 g.) sugar
12 oz. beer

Preheat Sunflair® Solar Oven. Set oven up with the round roaster and cover with lid. Or for loaf shape, grease a loaf pan and place inside the roaster and cover with the lid.

Bake 2 1/2 – 3 hours. Remove from pan and let cool for 15 minutes.

Note: If the flour is not sifted, the bread will be heavier and more dense like a biscuit.
