Culinary Delights: MSR Stovetop Baking


We eat the same thing just about every day (rice/beans/onions/peppers), the only thing we have going for us is that by the time we finish riding we are starving, and anything becomes palatable. So when Goat´s sister came down to Peru for Goat´s birthday and baked him cakes on our MSR Stoves, we considered it nothing short of a gastronomic miracle.

What was her secret? She used two pots like a double boiler, except in the bottom pot she placed sand to help disperse the heat, effectively making the thin aluminum pot more like a cast iron. Sand could also be placed on the lid for extra insulation. That and we had to patiently wait hours and hours before it was ready. And inevitably would vanish in seconds.
