Campfire Dump Cake

campfire recipes dutch oven
Here is my last dessert recipe of my campfire series. This is a classic recipe made in the dutch oven!
Campfire Dutch Oven Dump Cake Recipe

Campfire Dump Cake (in a dutch oven)

Yellow Cake Mix
Can of Soda (we used lemon-lime)
Cherry Pie filling
Chopped Pecans
Campfire Dump Cake Ingredients
Directions Create hot coals for the dutch oven. Line the dutch oven with foil and spray with some cooking spray. Dump the pie filling into the bottom of the dutch oven. Mix the cake mix & soda together in another bowl and pour over the cherry filling.
Campfire Dump Cake Batter
Sprinkle pecans on top. I just covered half since we had some picky eaters.
Campfire Dump Cake Pecans
Place lid on dutch oven, cover with coals, and bake for 20-25 minutes depending on your heat. We usually use our noses to know when to test for doneness. We could really smell a strong baking smell and when we pulled it around 23 minutes. It turned out perfectly!

The filling was really hot, but that didn't stop everyone from devouring it. This is NOT a posed photo below. It was so delicious that we were practically fighting over it. Yummier than made with the conventional oven!

  6. This is fantastic! My son has just become a cub scout, so I've been telling me stories of my Girl Guide days, including campfire cooking. We never made anything quite as amazing as this though - I just showed it to him and he said he'd definitely like to try making it some time :)
