Biscuits on board

Anyone have any luck making biscuits on board without an oven? If so, how did you accomplish it?

I thought a pressure cooker brought to temp and wrapped in a blanket might work.

Check The Boat Galley under 'breads' for recipes for not only oven, but also pressure cooker and for Omnia stovetop oven

Bisquick, placed in cans secured to the exhaust manifold on the engine while it is running.

Or look up "pan breads", breads and biscuits baked in a cast iron pan on the stove top burners.

Re: Biscuits on board

I have an oven but sometimes I make these on a small skillet over the grill.

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon sugar
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
8 tablespoons butter, cubed
3/4 cup milk

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder and salt together. Cut butter into mixture with a couple of knives or a fork until it looks like cornmeal. Make a well in the dry mixture and slowly add milk. Knead dough with your fingers and add milk when necessary. Flour your counter and roll out the dough to about an inch. Cut with a biscuit cutter.

Butter a skillet and place biscuits in pan. Cover and place on your cooker at medium heat. Bake until done, about 10-15 minutes. If your grill is big enough you can use a Dutch oven.

Re: Biscuits on board

I'm going to give that recipe a try on dry land before moving it to the boat. Practice makes perfect! Now just have to make some room for some marmalade in the cooler.

Re: Biscuits on board

You could try some variation of chicken and dumplings though they won't actually be butterable like biscuits from an oven. I like them because they're not dry.

Re: Biscuits on board

I use a cast iron aebleskiver pan on the stove top. I use pancake/waffle batter (basically like traditional aebleskivers), corn bread mix, and even scone batter once in a while. I have a Lodge one, but there are several brands out there. Lodge also makes cast iron bakeware in various shapes and sizes for the oven, but it would probably be a bit harder to heat one of them evenly on a stove top.

Re: Biscuits on board

I've heard great things about the Omnia Oven, designed to be used on the stovetop or BBQ. Haven't tried one yet, but its on my to-do.

I completely forgot about those. I think I've actually got one somewhere in all my camping gear!
