Apple Cake: 1-3 hours steaming at the edge of the fire. Tools: Large pot for steaming with a lid or alumimum foil to cover; 2-3 quart pot with lid or heavy duty foil to seal top - that fits inside the large pot (nestled pot kit workswell). 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 theflour 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 ⅔ or ¾ 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 longas the water does not boil dry, this cannot be overcooked.
