Camp Oven Chocolate Cake

Close up of a chocolate cake in a cake tin baking in a camp oven.

This is a nice chocolate cake that is easy to make and tastes great. It is perfect for any style of camp oven. This cake tastes great on its own or served with whipped cream. 

It is also a great cake to cook at home and then take on picnics, hikes, or trips to the beach. It slices really well and can be eaten with or without icing or frosting.

Make sure to grease your cake tin with butter before adding the batter, otherwise, the cake will stick. If you want to add even more chocolate, you can stir in chocolate chips before baking or drizzle the cake with chocolate sauce after the cake has cooled.

  • 3/4 cup salted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder
  • 1/2 cup self-rising flour
  • 2 tablespoons self-rising flour

Equipment

  • camp oven
  • rectangle cake tin

Directions
