Dutch Oven Upside Down Pineapple Cake

Perfect as a dessert or snack this Dutch oven upside down cake is quick and easy to make yet eye-catching and delicious.

The key is setting up the caramel, pineapple, and cherries on the base of the Dutch oven before gently adding the cake batter. This can also be tweaked by adding liquor or similar for some additional flavor.

If you have a new Dutch oven this may want to wait until it has a slightly stronger seasoning layer as pineapple can be a little harsh. It is however an easy recipe to bake with a standard charcoal briquette set-up.

Ingredients

1/2 cup unsalted butter

1 cup brown sugar

10oz (284g) can sliced pineapple

Maraschino cherries, halved

1 box yellow cake mix (or vanilla cake mix) + required ingredients to make

Equipment

10 inch Dutch oven

Recipe Directions

  1. Preheat the Dutch oven to 325 degrees F (107 degrees C).

  2. In the Dutch oven melt the butter then add the brown sugar and mix to combine.

  3. On the bottom of the Dutch oven add a layer of pineapple rings then place the maraschino cherries in the pineapple ring holes.

  4. Make the cake mix as per the packet instructions then pour evenly over the pineapple rings.

  5. Bake the Dutch oven at 325 degrees F (107 degrees C) until the surface of the cake springs back and a knife inserted comes out clean. Rest for 5 minutes.

  6. To flip the pineapple cake place a chopping board or plate over the Dutch oven, using hot gloves turn upside down the cake can fall onto the chopping board. If any of the fruit sticks, gently remove and reposition back to its original spot on the cake. Serve slices while still warm.
