Mini Piña Colada Cakes

Mini Piña Colada cakes are baked in a camp oven and are a great camping treat. They can also be cooked at home and make a fancy dessert for backyard barbecues and parties.

Pineapple rings and cherries are placed in the bottom of muffin cups, then covered with cake batter. Baked in the camp oven, then flipped out, these easy cakes make an impressive dessert.

The cake mix is very easy to make, using boxed cake and pudding mix. You can serve these cakes drizzled with chocolate and caramel syrup, or eat them as-is. Cream is also a good pairing as the dessert is very sweet.
