The dutch oven attachments made it super easy to remove from the hot fire even in the dark!  I want to redo this recipe just so I can have another piece of the cake.

scooping up the dessert


  • 1 14 oz can of Cherry pie filling
  • 1 chocolate cake box mix
  • 1 can of Coca Cola
  • 8 oz of chocolate chips (more more if you like !)
  • butter


  1. Prepare the charcoal
  2. Line the dutch oven with a liner. We use a foil liner that we coated with butter
  3. Add cake mix to the dutch oven that is lined and buttered
  4. Slowly pour in can of Coke followed by the can of cherry pie filling
  5. Stir well before sprinkling chocolate chips on top
  6. Open the pie filling and dump it into the bottom of the dutch oven.
  7. Pour in the cherry pie filling – mix before adding the can of coke
  8. Sprinkle the chocolate chips on top of cake mixture before putting the lid on to bake
  9. Put lid on dutch oven and carefully move over to the charcoal grill rake not directly in the coals on bottom.
  10. Place 16 charcoal on the lid of the oven.
  11. Make a circle of 8 charcoal that will serve as the base heat for baking the cake.
  12. Place the dutch oven over the circle and let the cake bake for approximately an hour and 30 minutes. We checked the cake at 1 hour
  13. Remove the dutch oven from the coals and let cool a little before serving in disposable camp bowls!

I still can’t believe how moist the cake was… perfect! My photo is a little grainy because we took it late at night.  We had time to go enjoy the sunset at camp before serving this up.
