Box Cake?

Postby ae6black » Mon Feb 23, 2015 8:59 pm

Some of the Recipes I see on the foreum are kind of fancy. I was just wondering if anyone ever, baked a simple box cake in a 12 pan. Would you need parchment? Could you bake the whole thing at once or need two pots or do it in two different stages?

I do it in a dutch oven. It's easy. Substitute 7-Up or Sprite for the eggs (just use it to turn it to batter). Two pots? Parchement? Isn't that what the Egyptians used? :D

Here's a dutch half-full of bisquits:

Tony is that a aluminum DO sure is shinny on the inside and to get back to ? ask I mix cake according to directions in a 12'' i use 1 oven and it will be thinner then I like in a 10'' I use 2 boxes and 3 ovens but it's thicker What kind of cake you making if it has fruit save the juice and add it to the batter instead of oil or water GOOD luck hope this helped Oh WIFE said use 2 boxes in a 12 and it will be about 2 1/2'' thick but takes longer to cook so watch and don't burn remember 8 bottom and 15 top for 350 10-18 if windy and cold.

Yeah, I swear by aluminum dutches. Quit the cast iron dutches thirty years ago. There's twenty-five or more river trip companies here that haul about 20,000 tourists down our two rivers each summer. Most of those trips are five days. Some are six. And thus they serve about 100,000 dinners each summer. All on aluminum dutches. Those figures are not exagerated. There's two reasons they use aluminum. (They work and they're relativley light.)

So I if I understand this right, I could use a Lodge 10 quart and substitute soda pop for the eggs and it would turn out similar to a box cake done in a 9 X 13 in the home oven? Just oil up the sides and when done slap a tub of icing on it and I'd be good to go?

Yep.

Here's a good one:



If I you did it just as a cake you'd want to use just 3-4 coals on the bottom.

I APOLOGIZE !

I should have started at the top of the thread.

"Anything you can do in your home oven you can do in a dutch oven"

This is a standard yellow cake mixed exactly as directed on the box.

Once it was mixed I poured it over some apple pie filling.

The filling is there to add a little moisture and it helps to keep from burning the bottom. ( soon to be the top when you turn it out)

Cook till a skewer comes out clean and remove all heat and let the oven cool a few minutes to help release the cake. Cover with a large plate or serving tray and invert the oven. It will plop out. Remove the parchment liner and stand by for the praise.

switching from cakes to pies.

I just found this and gotta try it.


These little individual pies would cook up great in a dutch oven.

So Bob, would you use parchment paper with all of these cake recipes that have been posted in this thread?

I definatly would, it is cheap insurance against burning and helps with release and also help to lift it out. If you check and find a dark spot starting on top during cooking place a layer of aluminum foil ( shiny side up) it will somewhat protect the top.

The mini pies look great....any trick to those, or is it just stuffig. The pie in the jar? I don't know about "field made" -- glass is too easy to break or chip in transit. But for home consumption, they look yummy!

Oh my God glass......

Don't any of you have bedding inside your trailers?

One thread we are worried about wine glasses another breaking plates ect.

I just roll the glass goodies in one of the blankets or a sleeping bag so they don't clank together. I have yet to loose anything breakable.

P.S. if you have a microwave in the galley with the glass plate carousel just stuff one of your pillows inside and shut the door. It will protect it in transit by not letting it clunk around.
