Chocolate and Cherry Dump Cake

5 1 5 1

Dump cakes are a very popular and easy dessert to make in a Dutch oven while camping and seem synonymous with American Boy Scouts camp cooking.

The basic premise of a dump cake is you ‘dump’ a few pre-processed ingredients in a Dutch oven and often to peoples surprise a cake is created.

This particular version is one of my favorites that combines cherries and chocolate cake to create a cake sitting on a gooey cherry base. It is surprisingly easy and tasty.

Ingredients

1 can cherry pie filling

1 box chocolate cake mix

300ml lemon lime soda

1/2 cup chocolate drops

Equipment

10 inch Dutch oven

baking paper

Recipe Directions

  1. Add a layer of baking paper to the Dutch oven as neatly as possible.

  2. Ope the can of cherry pie filling and create an even layer over the base of the Dutch oven.

  3. Sprinkle the contents of the packet chocolate cake mix over the cherry base.

  4. Gently pour the soda over the cake mix.

  5. Lightly drag a spoon over the top of the cake and soda mixture to create some combining.

  6. Lightly scatter the chocolate chips over the top of the cake.

  7. Set the Ducth oven up to an approximate temperature of 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Cook for 30 minutes.

  8. Let cool slightly before serving.
