Easy Strawberry Cinnamon Biscuits is one of those simple go-to recipes that everyone loves. The ingredients are always at hand and they bake quickly. Starting with a can of pre-made biscuit dough, just roll in butter, sugar, and cinnamon, add a spoonful of jelly, and pop into the oven. Easy Strawberry Cinnamon Biscuits makes a nice breakfast treat at home or camping. These can be baked in a traditional oven, a dutch oven, as well as the solar oven. I baked mine in a Solavore Sport Solar Oven.
Easy Strawberry Cinnamon Biscuits
- ½ - ¾ cup sugar
- ½ - 1 tsp cinnamon
- ¼ cup melted butter or margarine
- 1 tube refrigerated biscuits
- 10 tsp strawberry jam or preserves (or more to your liking)
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1 - 2 TBSP milk
- Pre-heat the solar oven while preparing the recipe.
- Place the butter into a solar safe baking pan. Place in the hot solar oven to melt. This won't take long.
- While the butter is melting, mix the sugar and cinnamon together in a small bowl.
- When the butter is melted, remove the pan from the solar oven. Dip each biscuit into the butter, and then in the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Place each biscuit into the pan.
- With a spoon, make an indentation into each biscuit. Fill the indentation with jam. Sprinkle any remaining sugar/cinnamon over the tops of the biscuits.
- Place the biscuits into the hot solar oven. Bake uncovered for about an hour. When the biscuits are completely done, remove from the oven.
- While the biscuits are cooling, mix together the powdered sugar and milk to make a smooth glaze. While the biscuits are still warm, drizzle the glaze over the biscuits.
- The amount of time needed to fully cook this recipe will depend on how hot your oven gets. The temperature of a solar oven is affected by many variables including the type of oven being used; the type of cookware being used - dark pot vs shiny pot; the weather - bright & sunny or partly cloudy; and how focused the oven is to the sun.
- I baked my biscuits for 1.5 hours at an oven temperature of 275° on a sunny day of about 85°
Caution: Be sure to let the biscuits cool a little because the jam will be very hot.
When baking pas
HINT: When baking any type of bakery item - bread, cookies, brownies, cakes, biscuits -- be sure give it enough time to let it fully bake. The top of the item will look and feel done, but the bottom is harder to get done and might not be fully baked. When you think the item is done, give it another 15 to 20 minutes just to be sure. Don't worry, the top will not overbake or burn in that time. If you do take it out too soon and wish it had baked just a little bit longer, go ahead and pop it back into the solar oven for a few minutes.
