A Little Chocolate Cake & Butter Cream Frosting

Note: This recipe was designed for 3-4 cup backpacker pot in an Solar Cooker or Camp Cooker.
DOUBLE FOR 2 Quart Pan

  • Sift or mix together:
  • ½ cup flour
  • 2 tablespoons cocoa
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 rounded teaspoon baking soda
  •  pinch salt

Mix together:

  • 1/3 cup cold water
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 1 teaspoon vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Pour into greased small pot (3-4 cup), cover with dark lid, and set out early. Wait at least an hour and a half before checking. It is done when it feels firm and the top springs back when pressed lightly and a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out without wet batter sticking to it.

For an extra yummy treat, add chocolate mint frosting. When cake is done, immediately cover top with thin mints or pieces of peppermint patty type candy. Return to cooker for ten minutes. Remove and spread the melted candy over the top of the cake. Delicious!
