Baking Cakes On The Trail?
It was my friend, Ldyblade’s birthday. So I wanted to make her cake!
I picked up a Betty Crocker Warm Delights mix at the store for around a $1. I tossed the bowl it came with into my “I might use it later” pile and packed the mix bag with a new heavy duty sandwich bag. On Sunday night in camp, I mixed it up with 1/4 cup water. I put in into my pan as I described in the previous entry. I put it on for about 15 minutes and let it sit for a couple more minutes.
The cake was very good. I can see stocking up on them when they go on sale. It is minimal fuel use and the results are worth the few minutes work!
