Regarding "bag" cooking, I started doing that around 1990. I don't use anything fancy, just my regular cook pot and lid. I put some water in the pot and then a few rocks large enough so the water doesn't cover them. I set the plastic bag with the baking mix, water added, on top of the rocks (off of direct heat which might burn)and put a lid on. It works just fine for me. Sometimes I just immerse the sealed bag into a pot of boiling water and simmer until the cake or whatever is done. I especially like to use spice cake mix with added pecans and raisins. It needs no icing, as it is dumped out of the bag and eaten hot---yummy! Biscuit mix works well too. Items turn out a little denser than if they were baked, but no extra weight from special ovens is fine with me.
