One of my favorite things to do on the trail is to try different ways to cook while on the trail. This is my second attempt at baking on the trail and my second success. The mix I used this time was a muffin mix. Just add water and stir.
This is the pan I made out of a foil roaster pan. The strips of folded foil in the bottom of the pot keep the batter from burning.
I made pan so the sides won't touch the sides of the pot. Once again so it won't burn. Then build a fire, put your batter in your pan, and put the pan in your pot.
Now you have to move some coals to the lid of the pot. This helps it cook faster, and more even.
After about 30-40 minutes you can have desert. It was good!!!
Give it a try at home, if you can, before you try it in the woods. Happy baking my little Betty Crockers!!!!
