Plop cake cooks up like a pancake on the trail with white or brown chocolate chips.
1 Cup cake flour
1/4 Cup sugar
1 Tbsp powdered eggs
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
2 Tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1/2 Cup white chocolate chips
3 Tbsp water per serving
1 Tbsp butter or oil per serving
Mix together all dry ingredients.
In three separate sandwich-size resealable plastic bags place approximately 1/2 cup of mix in each.
On the Trail:
Heat butter or oil in pan.
Add 3 tablespoons water to one bag of cake mix and knead inside bag until mixed. Mixture will be rather thick. Cut hole in corner of bag and squeeze mix out into pan. Fry each side, like a pancake.
Omit the cocoa and chocolate chips and it's plain white plop cake. Also, milk or semi-sweet chocolate chips (with or without the cocoa) would make good variations.
