I love the idea of using a CanCooker to make our favorite foods, faster, but I had not really thought to use it for baking!
If you are looking for a Halloween recipe to make for the classroom, you'll definitely love the fast and easy cooking method the CanCooker can provide along with this Limited Edition Autumn Velvets cake mix from Duncan Hines.
Use your CanCooker to make these single serve cakes - they will cook faster and will be moister than baking in an oven.
Pumpkin or Pumpkin Spice Cupcake mix, Loaf mix or Cake mix
Prepare the batter according to the instructions on the mix box.
Insert the 2-piece CanCooker rack into the CanCooker and add 12 oz. of water. Add the batter to the appropriate bake pans (see below). Latch lid and cook on low/medium heat.
For mini loafs: use two mini loaf pans. Steam for 40 minutes.
For cupcakes: Use 6 paper cupcake molds inside rigid foil cupcake baking cups. Steam for 15 minutes.
For single serve cakes: use 4 small ramekins. Steam for 15 minutes.
You can make all these in multiple batches, just make sure to check the water level between batches – it should be just below the racks.
Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center of the cake – it should come out clean. Let cool, frost and serve.
