    we've got friends that do a fantastic upside down cake in the egg.  not sure why an oven is better.  maybe for more delicate stuff, but an upside down cake is pretty stable fare.

    they slip a little cayenne into theirs. together with the tiny bit of smoke, it's a nice twist on cake for cake's sake

    i'm no baker, and the electric oven may be better for some other types of baking, but i do know that the egg is stable at a fixed temp.  an electric oven will cycle on and off maintaining an AVERAGE temp of 350 (for ex.), going above and below that number as the element heats and cools.  the egg at 350 stays at 350.

    an oven might be a drier environment, if that is important in the baking you do.

    i don't believe there's any universal 'better' thing.  they each have their merits.
