Chocolate cake

For our dutch oven assignment, we decided to make a cake and then add our dehydrated strawberries to it for a filling. The strawberries did not work out very well, but Colin will be covering that part. For a cake here is what you need:
- Cake batter
- 3 Large eggs
- 1 1/3 cup of water
- 1/2 cup of oil

The cake mix itself was easy to make, as we already got it from a box so we just added the extra stuff. We had 6 coals on the bottom and 16 coals on top. We must not have put out the fire completely before starting to cook our cake, because the bottom of our cake was pretty burnt. We cooked it for 30 minutes. The middle turned out quite good so 30 minutes was a good time, but the coals and fire on the bottom were to hot, causing it to stick and burn. We covered the pot and coals with tinfoil to keep the heat in and left it to cook for itself.
Not a very original recipe but it would have been better if our strawberries had have turned out.
