I know you old hands already know how to do this, but I just experimented, and it worked, so I had to share the good news.
Following general directions from
http://www.instructables.com/id/Easy-Bread...in-a-pressure-/

I mixed up some tea-bisc mix; put it in a buttered stainless steel bowl;put the bowl on a trivet inside my 6 qt pressure cooker with 1.5 cups water, and 'cooked' it for 15 minutes.
It turned out fine - looked more like a dumpling than bread, but tasted just fine.

Now that I've tried in on my home stove, I'm ready to try it with my Coleman stove, when I'm boondocking this week.

Has anyone else done other 'baking' in a pressure cooker? I'd love to hear your recipes and experience.

Hi Karen,

Quite a few sailors (who, if they are on smaller boats, don't have ovens) use pressure cookers for baking. I have a friend who bakes cakes, yeast bread, and all kinds of other goodies (on a one-burner kerosene stove with a pressure cooker).

If there's something in particular you would fancy making, I could get a recipe

Raya

Thanks Raya for your offer to get a recipe - I don't have anything in particular in mind, so will just look for recipes on-line when I think of something - I was just so pleased that the experiment worked that I had to share the news!

While on a wilderness canoe trip with a buddy and our wives, we amazed them by baking a cake with just two pots. Insert one [dry] into the other with a piece of 1/4 inch copper tube twisted into a circle or a triangle as a trivet. If you forget the tubing then you can use three ever present discarded beer caps that are laying around. A small pot-oven of bread baking while the breakfast bacon cooks can be carried in it's pot for the evening meal.
You aren't limited to just bread. Cakes and muffins can also be served up in this fashion. Make an impossible apple pie by placing the ingredients [apples, cinamon, etc] in the bottom and the dough crust on top. When finished, invert the pot to place the pie onto a serving plate. Packages of instant muffin mix work well when baked in this fashion as you would a cake. Using your own make ahead self raising bread mix you can add your own mix of fruit and nuts or cheese to make other dishes.

This sounds amazing! I presume you put a lid on the pot for baking? How long does it take and was this over a campfire or a camp stove and what temp? I guess you make your doughs and crusts ahead of time and keep them in the cooler?

Thanks! I googled "Pot Oven" and nothing came up.

She said Pot Oven, you're lucky nothing came up, could have been Cheech and Chong.

Here is an example of a pot oven used on boats.

Omnia Oven: Bake on your stove top. No oven needed, all you need is a stove top - be it gas, electric, propane, butane or alcohol (not for use with induction stoves).

Tom,

That Omnia looks pretty slick - have you (or has anyone) tried it?

I've not used one, just read about it on another forum. I'm a Dutch oven baker.
