It's difficult to tote fresh milk and eggs into the wilderness, so Latimer reconstitutes dry milk and eggs instead. For this recipe, you can substitute two large eggs and one cup fat-free milk for the dry versions; you'll need to decrease the water to 3/4 cup. Serve these savory cakes with sour cream and salsa for breakfast or dinner.
