Steamed Cake

Prep Time10 mins


  • 1 pkg. cake mix
  • 1-2 pc egg if required
  • melted butter if required
  • water as needed


  • Buy a cake mix and follow the directions. I mean, you could make it from scratch, but that would be very impractical for travelling with all those ingredients.
  • In a pot add about 2” of water. Place a flat, heat resistant object in the center. I used a rock that I found.
  • Pour cake batter into a bowl (a plastic camp bowl was sufficient for me).
  • Place the bowl on the rock and cover..
  • Steam for about 30 minutes, checking with a toothpick or twig poking the center until it comes out clean


I split the cake mix in half and prepared this dessert twice. Half of the mix was ample amount for 2 people
