This is an old recipe used at Church Camps, Scouts and by Families who camp a lot.

It is sure to bring back lots of fun memories from camping!

We like to sit around the campfire telling stories and singing songs while waiting for this to cook.

You can get creative by changing the cake mix flavors, the fruits, and the pop flavors! (Cherry Cola is great with the chocolate cake!).

How to Make Camping Dump Cake I

Step-by-Step

  1. Put cake mix into a bowl. Add can of pop. Stir (don't beat), until batter is formed (don't over stir... you want the bubbles from the pop to help the cake rise!)
  2. Line a Dutch oven with a disposable aluminum foil round cake pan or just line the Dutch oven with foil. Butter the pan or foil.
  3. Dump the canned pie filling over the bottom of the Dutch oven.
  4. Pour the batter over the fruit. Put lid on Dutch oven.
  5. Set the Dutch oven on 8 to 10 coals. Put 10 to 15 coals on the lid. Let cook 45 to 55 minutes. Brush the coals and coal dust off the lid before opening.
  6. *** For a richer dessert, you can add 1 stick of butter or margarine cut in small pieces and scattered over the top of the batter.

    *** Let cool a little before serving.

    *** If you have ice cream or whipped cream available, put a scoop on the top or the side.

    *** You can use one flavor of fruit or two kinds of fruit...it is great either way!
