Ya bakes a solar cake

Several of our sailing friends are really enthusiastic about solar cooking. It’s the most direct way of using solar energy, so naturally, we wanted to try this oven ourselves.  Karin from sv “Marelief” made it possible!

Equal portions of flour, sugar and butter; 1 egg, some baking powder and salt. Stir well.

Peter and Eric loved the cake!

Enthusiastic? You can build them yourself!
