Ziplock Snackin' Cake

Jean Reid
East York, Ontario

From an outdoor cooking session at a Provincial Annual at an Area's campsite comes this memory:

We cooked a snackin' cake in a zip-lock baggie (one-quarter to one-half full) in a pot over a single-burner propane stand. The pot had a piece of mesh in it to keep the baggie off the bottom (take a piece of light chain link fencing (or like material)approximately 6 inches by 12 inches, fold it in 3 to make it 2 inches by 12 inches, roll it up like a jelly roll in a loose circle to fit the bottom of the pot). Put water in the pot to cover the mesh plus about one inch up. Bring the water to a boil. Meanwhile mix the snackin' cake as per directions and put in the baggie. Remember only to fill it about one-quarter to one-third full and get as much air out as possible before sealing. Put the bag in the pot on top of the mesh, cover with a lid and turn the heat down to simmer. Check now and again until it looks cooked. A real judgement call, that!
