How to keep my oven's electrical socket dry from condensation?

by Tova
In winter, moisture from whatever is cooking on the stovetop condenses on my backsplash and drips behind the oven onto my outlet, shorting out its circuit. What can I do? Any tips? Right now I put a paper towel in the gap (pictured) when I cook :-( Thanks!!
