I thought I would show a baking technique through some photos I took about 8 years ago that demonstrate how to use a regular camping stove.
When canoe tripping my wife and I have baked breads, muffins, cinnamon rolls, biscuits, cakes, even panzerotti. There's no need to buy a special-purpose Outback Oven or reflector oven for baking, and no need to settle for bannock, when you're in the mood for fresh bread after a week in the bush. All you need is an ordinary camping stove and two differently-sized pots as shown in the photos below. My wife and I have been baking this way in the bush for years and years. So far we've only had good results; every bit as good as what one can make with an Outback Oven and better than with a typical reflector oven. You CAN have your cake and eat it too.
Here's how we do it using our Trangia stove kit plus one large aluminium pot and a bit of tin foil, but this can be done with [I]any [/I]camping stove, including a twig stove. For those who are wondering where I got the aluminum pot shown in my photos, it's just the cheapo large pot that comes in World Famous' camping mess kit. The one in the photos is one I've used since I was a boy.
I will be uploading a video to my YouTube channel soon showing this baking technique.
Hope this helps,
