    We wanted to try something new...

    My daughter mixed up a corn cake batter... corn cake batter.jpg Like a cornbread but using corn flour instead of corn meal.. I made a little pan support for inside of of a scout type mess kit. mess kit oven.jpg
    We put the pan of batter into the mess kit. mess kit oven corn cake.jpg
    We started the fire and put the lid on the mess kit.. mess kit oven burning.jpg
    We use sticks for extended cooking times..These are old cedar shakes split like kindling. v.75 oven 1.jpg

    Another way to extend cooking time is to add pieces of fuel to the chamber..
    gassing v.75.jpg you can see the gasses being driven from the fuel.

    After about an hour... corn cake 2.jpg

    Interesting! How's it taste? I have some corn flour I may have to come up with something myself.

    It was sweeter than corn bread and had a finer texture..More like dessert than dinner bread..I think it would make a nice breakfast with a little fruit or berry syrup. We are happy that we could bake with the little Nomad stove. We'll try some biscuits this weekend.

    A Dutch oven would be the hot ticket for a multitude of recipes on your stove.
