solar cooking recipe


  • 1 can of Pumpkin (29 oz.)
  • 3 eggs
  • 4 tsp. of pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup of evaporated milk
  • 3/4 cup of sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 yellow or white cake mix-dry
  • 1 cube of butter-melted


  • Pre heat solar oven to 350 F... if possible
  • Mix all ingredients together except cake mix and butter.
  • Pour into greased 9 x 13 pan or into two to three loaf pans.
  • Sprinkle cake mix over the top of pumpkin mix.
  • Drizzle melted butter over top of mix.
  • Bake at 350 F for at least one hour in solar oven

The dry mix will cook into the moist pumpkin batter and will brown a little on top, depending on solar oven.
