If you have a grill, fire it up. Get it to about 360 and pop your cake in. Adjust heat to 350 and DO NOT open for 30 minutes. I have done this and it worked. Best of luck!

Sounds great, I was thinking Dutch oven if you had one that was large enough to fit your cake pan, but the time to get the charcoal or wood hot would not be the best for the quality of the cake. Sandi has a better option if it's available to you.

Too late now, but for futures. Not optimal, but you can store mixed batter a few days in fridge before baking.
Maybe worth trying for a 5-minute baked cake.

True, but if electricity is out, so is fridge.

BB - you're right, of course.
But I've learned (through sore experience of power outage) that a fridge (kept mostly closed) will hold its temps for 1-2 days, and a freezer (ditto) will hold for 3-4.
