zelph,

That big muffin he shows in the baking video looks to me to be just the right mega-muffin size!


I went back and viewed the video again and saw that it was definitely my size muffin. I don't know why I was thinking small silicon rubber muffin mold.

I've made the jello mold size :o Now that's big muffin size ;)

These are the perfect size silicone muffin pans for a single person on the trail --->
Image

5" across/1-1/2" deep inside(in the flat bottom configuration)..63 grams..can be turned inside out for a rounded bottom..come in a set of three for around $10..but super hard to find.Try amazon or online for '5"
baking-cooking-cake-silicone pan"..you might get lucky and find them..or start calling your local target,walmart,or whatever specialty cooking stores to see if they might carry them.I found mine at a thrift store for $3..but have been looking for a year or so.

Connie..I don't burn my food in metal pans.I oil the pans and they wipe clean pretty easily.Use a stove that simmers for baking rather than one that has one temperature setting of "burn the crap out of anything you put in there!"..and you won't have that "burn/potscraping" problem... :lol:

Yeah, that muffin is 1/2 a batch of muffin mix! (Equivalent of 3 muffins) :D

It looks like it turned out "just right" !

I think I like your particular double-wall baking system, held separate by the silicone ring at the top.


I have a small size pancake turner, I found for backpacking use, that has the spatula made of silicone on a metal insert.

I find silicone feels greasy, so it is difficult for me to know when I have got it washed clean.

It is also a lint-magnet, so I keep it inside a plastic bag.

Do you have that problem?

Yes, those are nice size for big muffins. Is it difficult to get them to completely bake all the way through. 3 ounces of fuel is high for half batch muffin mix.

Hmm... optimizing muffin size, pan size, fuel consumption

...and an exquisitely crafted entry it will be.


If I hadn't been told I had two tumors pressing against my kidney and had to have a "cancer workup" I might have it finished.

The good news is, I do not have cancer.


I do think backpacking baking perfection is a good excuse for a contest.

This is "next year".

I did my baking entries last year or the year before..I think my "current" sheba stove uses about 1-1/2 to 2oz for fuel per 40-minute bake job...do I get brownie points for that? :lol:
Some people were saying that was too much fuel use... :roll:
