Toaster Oven Cooking - Tea Biscuits
This is a quick and simple recipe for tea biscuits that uses your toaster oven, rather than your big oven, so you save energy and don't heat up the house. With only four common ingredients, you can whip out a batch of steaming, fresh tea biscuits to accompany breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Best served hot with butter!
- 1 cup all purpose flour
- 2 Tbsp butter, melted
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 cup milk, approximately
- Preheat your toaster oven to 400 degrees F.
- Mix 1 cup flour and 2 tsp baking powder in a bowl.
- Melt 2 Tbsp butter (or margarine) in the microwave on low, then add melted butter to flour mixture and stir.
- Add a little bit of the milk to the bowl and squish the dough with your hands. Keep adding milk until the dough sticks together.
- Split the dough into four equal balls. Flatten the balls to about 2 inches thick and place in baking pan lined with aluminum foil.
- Bake in 400 degree F toaster oven for 20 minutes, or until tea biscuits are slightly browned.

2. Add 1/4 cup of shredded old cheddar cheese to dough to make cheesy biscuits.
3. For a sweeter dessert-like biscuit, add 2 Tbsp white sugar and replace the milk with 10% cream. You may need a bit more milk to make the dough stick together.
