The National Weather Service office in Omaha tried to bake biscuits in a parked car — and sort of succeeded.

  • The office tweeted photos of its experiment Thursday, July 18, 2019.
  • Four premade biscuits were placed on a sheet pain in a parked car in direct sunlight.
  • After eight hours, the biscuits had a golden brown outside.
  • Staffers then attempted to eat them — but found the inside to still be doughy.
  • According to records the office kept, the surface of the pan got as hot as 185 degrees.
  • Published instructions for premade biscuits typically indicates they should be baked at 350 degrees for 12 to 16 minutes in a kitchen oven.
