How to Make Dutch Oven Double Chocolate Cake

Step-by-Step

  • 1AT HOME:
  • 2Combine flour, sugar, dried buttermilk, cocoa, baking soda salt, and 1/2 cup chocolate chips in an airtight container or plastic bag. Pour 1/3 cup oil and the vanilla into a second container with a snug lid. Cut a circle of parchment paper that will fir the bottom of a 4 qt. camp dutch oven.
  • 3IN CAMP:
  • 4Fill a charcoal chimney starter one-third with briquets, set in a firepit, ignite, and let burn until briquets are spotted gray, about 20 minutes.
  • 5Meanwhile, generously oil dutch oven, line with parchment paper circle, and oil paper. Pour flour mixture into a medium bowl.
  • 6When fire is ready, add oil mixture and 1 cup water to flour mixture and stir until blended. Scrape into dutch oven and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup chocolate chips.
  • 7Using tongs, space 8 coals in firepit in a circle a little smaller than the dutch oven. Set dutch oven on coals, checking that it's level. Set lid on top, then arrange 14 coals on lid around the lip and 2 coals in center of lid. Set any extra coals aside.
  • 8Bake cake until a skewer inserted into center comes out clean, 25 to 30 minutes; to check, lift lid by sliding tongs through lid's center handle and bracing them against side of lid closest to you, then tilting lid up. Remove lid and let cake cool at least 15 minutes before cutting into wedges.
