Delicious Cake baked using sand in a cooking pot placed on a stove top.
I have posted a cake baked without an oven earlier on the blog. However, that cake wasn't baked using sand. The baking pan was paced directly on the pot and I don't think I'll bake like that again. Using sand and foil actually maintains the pot and is neat too. This I experimented with a small sized cake and because it turned out so great, I'll bake much bigger cakes using these method in the future becaause my oven actually consumes more gas than baking in a pot on the burners. Even when one has an oven, baking in a pot with sand really saves gas because less is consumed.

CAKE WITHOUT AN OVEN INGREDIENTS:
- 3 cups flour
- 1 sachet baking margarine
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- a pinch of salt
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 8 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla essence.
First of all I accidentally added the sugar direct to flour instead of beating it with margarine first, that scared me but the cake turned out great. Because sugar had already accidentally been added to dry flour, I had to add the eggs one after the other and beat with margarine before adding the vanilla essence.

The baking pan is greased, some flour sprinkled inside before pouring in the batter. Foil is used to cover the sand before the baking pan is placed on the foil in the
