Stovetop “baking” – soda biscuits

I made some “baked” goodies last night, using just a pan and a burner!  (And the ingredients.)  These are soda biscuits.  They remind me slightly of Irish soda bread, but the soda flavor is toned down by the mild sweetness.

Maggie’s Soda Biscuits



  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 2 tablespoons wheat germ (optional; you can substitute with this amount of flour/oats/etc)
  • 2 teaspoons stevia (or other sweetener)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • dash of salt
  • 1/3 cup almond milk (I used unsweetened chocolate)
  • 1/2 small ripe banana, mashed (applesauce would work too)
  • 1 teaspoon apple cider vinegar


  1. Preheat a pan sprayed with cooking spray on low-medium heat.
  2. Mix together the dry ingredients – flour, wheat germ, stevia, soda, salt.
  3. Mix together (separately) the wet ingredients except for the vinegar – milk and banana.
  4. Mix the wet ingredients into the dry.  Then add the vinegar.  If the dough is still too dry, add a little bit more milk.
  5. Shape into 4 biscuits and place in the pan.  Cook, covered, for about 13 minutes.  Flip them, and cook, uncovered, for another 13 minutes.

Serve with some Earth Balance.  They are great with breakfast or as a late night snack.

  1. soda biscuits, first time seeing them! so interesting! where the name comes from?

    oh.. do you use liquid stevia or powdered?

  2. Sadie’s Personal Practice sounds intense! I was reviewing the link you gave me, and I’m going to try and do it daily. I get so impatient and just want to nail a pose right away. However, I know handstand is going to take time. Thanks again for thinking of me and sending me the link.

    I love biscuits with butter, but had not had them in years. Thanks so much for this recipe!

  3. i don’t think i’ve ever had irish soda bread, but i could get behind these 🙂 i’m probably late on this b/c i usually read from google reader, but i love the new header!

  4. These are awesome! I had no idea it was possible to do stovetop “baking” – and as long as their biscuits, you KNOW I am all over it 😉 I’m totally flagging this recipe!
