Apple Cake: 1-3 hours steaming at the edge of the fire. Tools: Large pot

or heavy duty foil to seal top - that fits inside the large pot (nestled
pot kit works well). Prepare in advance: Mix together the flour, dried egg
mix, dried milk powder, baking powder, salt, and 1 tablespoon granulated
sugar. With two knives, cut the shortening into the flour until mixture is
mealy. Store in a zip lock bag, Peel the apples and slice them. Put them
in a zip lock bag with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and any finely chopped
lemon peel that is available. Apple mixture may be frozen. Mix the
cinnamon, nutmeg, and t tablespoons of sugar and stone in a small ziplock
bag. At the camp site: Make a well in the center of the flour mixture in
the bag and add the water. Stir the mixture to form smooth batter, turn
into greased smaller pot. Arrange the apples in rows on top, pushing them
halfway into the dough. Sprinkle over the apples and dot with apricot jam.
Cut small pieces of butter over all. Cover the cake pot with lid or heavy
duty foil. Put the smaller pot inside the larger one and fill along the
sides with hot water until the water is about 2/3 or 3/4 of the way up the
sides of the cake pot. Place the lid on the large pot and place it on the
edge of the fire so the water simmers and just boils. Check from time to
time and add more water as it boils down. As long as the water does not
boil dry, this cannot be overcooked.
