National Weather Service Nebraska Bakes Biscuits in Car as Heat Advisory

The idea and the way it was carried out are fun and they got a lot of attention on social media. However, the reality is nothing but: inside a locked car parked in the sun, temperatures become deadly within minutes. Biscuits can bake and children, old people and animals die.

The experiment started with placing a tray with 4 biscuits on the dash of a black car. The NWS says they were initially going to do it with cookies but couldn’t find any at the store, so they settled for biscuits. Then, they documented the progress on social media.

“If you are wondering if it's going to be hot today, we are attempting to bake biscuits using only the sun and a car in our parking lot. We will keep you posted with the progress. Stay cool!” the first tweet in the series reads.

For the record, it takes about 15 minutes at 350 degrees for biscuits to bake. In the car, it took 8 hours at 185 degrees for them to be almost done.

The NWS continued with the updates, as promised, while followers had a blast cracking jokes about this unique experiment.

“The pan has reached 175 degrees in 60 minutes and the tops of the biscuits are at 153,” NWS wrote in one of the updates. “This is a good time to remind everyone that your car does in fact get deadly hot. Look before you lock! On average 38 children die in hot cars each year. Don't be a statistic!”

Finally, after 8 hours and just once moving the car to adjust to the sun, the “outside of the biscuit is actually edible,” the NWS wrote as a conclusion. They were still pretty doughy but almost done, which should serve as warning that, if you can bake or cook stuff in your hot car, children or the elderly can perish in it.
