This is how you bake cake using two pots, a cookie cutter, and a camp stove. The process is called wet baking or steam baking. It follows the similar concept of double boiling. It makes awesome and moist cakes every time and is nearly impossible to mess up.
Start by buying your mix of choice:
Then gather two backpackers pots and a camp stove, a cookie cutter, some water and a spoon:
Use the smaller pot and spoon to combine the water and cake mix:
Now take the cookie cutter and place inside the larger pot and fill water to top of cookie cutter:
Place small pot with cake mix in it inside of bigger pot centered on the cookie cutter:
The cookie cutter keeps the two pots separated so the inner pot can be evenly heated all around bottom and sides by the steam from the water.
Now carefully set on camp stove and let cook until done. Usually takes about 12-15 minutes:
And you are done. Because it is steam baked there might be a little moisture on top of the cake but it wont affect it and will dry off once removed to cool:
Next time you are in the back country or on a hike you can impress your friends and family with fresh baked CAKE!
Works with basically any type of bread mix…
Great hack! I would love to feature your post if you’re interested! https://home-love.ca/2018/02/03/know-a-good-homesteading-hack/
You are welcome to share it if you like…
thanks for the share but you should know i use titanium pots and a camp stove, not cast iron on a wood fire. however this same exact process can be done with cast iron over a wood fire.
