    I will be attempting to bake my son 2 brownies for his birthday next week while camping!!

    Patrick chose brownies, which would probably be the easiest to make. I will substitute the eggs with apple sauce and grabbed 2 pie tins. Should be sufficient!!

    Anyone else bake a cake (no DO) while camping??

    That's the one thing I really miss in my FnR. My clipper has an oven and I've made cookies, cake,etc., while camping. Can't be beat!

    It would be a breeze in a Coleman oven.

    Plenty of Dutch oven recipes available. I've done apple crisp, apple pie, and cheesecakes.

    Sounds delicious. I've made a cake in the DO before camping and it was a big hit with my little side kick. I don't have an oven in the camper so the DO is my only oven I have.

    Did lots of dutch oven baking over the years, but since it just the wife & myself nowadays, I use a Coleman oven most of the time. fits on my camp stove or on the pups stovetop. Baked up a batch of dinner rolls in it last trip, they turned out well enough that the wife has requested them again for the next camp...lol

    We used an Outback oven for years, which is basically a skillet, riser, and Nomex jacket, sits on the camp stove. We'd bake a giant muffin, cornbread, or whatever; the 6-muffin size mixes fit perfectly.
    We have the Coleman oven, but so far, I've only use it to reheat cornbread and keep tortilla warm when we did group trips. I want to learn to bake in it, I already bought a thermometer to keep tabs on the temp, I know the thermometer in the door is not accurate.

    So, for those with the Coleman, how does it handle cookies?

    A pie iron might be fun.

    I'd forgot about those. Pie irons are good. I'd have a line on Scouting trips, until I ran out of filling. I'll have to try it with the grandson. I hope it is still hanging in the shed.

    I just bought one to use when we go camping with my daughter, the newer ones feel a bit flimsy , but should work.

    Say yes to Pie Iron's!! They are a blast and can keep the kids entertained for awhile.

    The DW tried to make a Lava cake in the dutch oven that turned out to be the best Brownies ever.
