Stovetop cake?

porceluna | Oct 27, 2009 04:04 PM

Help! I'm a big baker (layer cakes, cupcakes, cookies...), but due to NYC rent constraints just moved to an apartment without an oven. Buying a toaster oven is out of the question (and it'd be too small for cakes anyway), and my best friend who would let me use her kitchen doesn't have an oven either.

This leaves me in a bit of a quandary. Is there any way to make a cake on the stovetop? I know Mark Bittman recently had a quiche-y, stovetop cake, but it requires finishing in the oven which I can't do.

Does anyone out there have a recipe/method for "baking" on the stovetop? If you do, I'd be indebted to you forever!
