Backcountry Baking By Karen Brooks, From: Arcata Backpacking tips on MaryJanesFarm breads and backpacking baked goods. They taste pretty good on or off the trail! The herb bread and brownies won the taste test at my house. As we were doing our taste test at home, we didn't want to dirty our muffin tins, so we broke out the paper cupcake liners. This worked beautifully on the trail as they are lightweight and can "bake" in a container next to the fire. While a convection oven is the best, any container you can cover and put by the fire works well. Using the cupcake paper liners saves the need for a pan and oil. So, for those who like to eat well and travel light, the cupcake liners work well. Happy Trails!
