Cutting the cake ...

We've been out tonight - enjoying lovely food and company.  It was late when we arrived home again. 

By that stage, the carrot cake had been in the thermal cooker a bit over 10 hours, which is double the recommended cooking time.

I was curious to see how it fared, so pulled it out and inverted it onto a cooling rack.  Nick and sampled a small piece each with a glass of port.  The texture is definitely more pudding-ish than cake-like and future servings will probably be served with custard.  It's pretty good though and overall I am quite pleased with the day's experiment.


  1. You're such a clever little camper cook. Love reading what you do.


  2. Thanks, Barb - no idea when our next camping adventure will be so at the moment I am practising camp cooking at home, just to keep myself out of mischief! ;)
