Good idea Oops. I find my baking more sucessful when using a simmering stove so the low heat of Sterno should work well. ;)

Would gelled fuel in big ketchup packs do?

The first time I EVER went backpacking, I carried a sterno stove..then I went to a propane canister stove. THEN I went to a "real" backpacking stove (Whisperlite). Now I use recycled drink cans in one form or another. :)
