neat! i love instructables!
though I'm not sure how effective it would be as far as keeping weight down.
what about using whatever cooking equipment you already have to make a "biscuit" or "pancake" shaped bread instead of tossing another altoids tin in to your pack?

As far as light goes, just find a stick, wrap the dough around it, and hold over a flame (campfire, stove, etc.) until cooked. But the Altoids Tin Bread Bake has the geeky-cool panache going for it.

Excellent post.
Gonna try that next long trip!

Healthy: Replace half or all the selfrising white flour with any other flour. If no selfrising flour is used, then add 1 tsp baking powder per cup of any flour to make it rise. Try different flours if you are a bread freak. I like Red Mill Oat bran cereal (which is really just a flour and found in all supermarkets western US).

On the trail artificial sweetner packets instead of sugar to keep Yogi and the ants away.

Altoids had a bigger tin which held oh maybe 4 times as many mints. Two Christmases ago Target stores had stacks of them up by the checkout counters. I still have one. Made the same, just way bigger.
