Abstract : The invention relates broadly to packaged bakery products, and, more particularly, to a method whereby bread and cake products are cooked within hermetically sealed, rigid, containers. The storage-stable bread and cake products are produced within rigid, hermetically sealed containers by partially filling a metal can with a batter or dough mixture. This is characterized by having a moisture content substantially less than that of a normal batter or dough and having 1/4 to 2/3 the normal amount of chemical leavening agents. Then the can is hermetically sealed and contents cooked within the can.
