Cobb Cooker: Cake!
I particularly wanted to cook cakes and found some very good instructions at a camper trailer discussion forum.
The author stressed that the cooker should be level, so Nick did his best!
I made one quantity of a basic vanilla cake recipe that I use fairly often.
The ratio is a cup of flour and a cup of sugar to half a cup of milk, with two eggs. I always reduce the sugar and used some of our chookies' eggs.
Next time I will make a double quantity of cake mixture and test the cooking time again. I didn't use a second trivet today but may do that when cooking a full cake.
The verdict? An excellent first attempt. Vaughan ate several pieces (and isn't generally keen on non-chocolate cake)! Erin and I have taste-tested also, though are resisting further samples so Nick can try some when he wakes up again.
