This is what you call a dump cake. It was prepared in a dutch oven outside by our campfire. You put the lid on and cover the lid with hot coals. This one is blueberries and pears. You can also use pineapple and cherries, or just use peaches or apples for a cobbler. It is the best! The recipes below are for cooking indoors in your oven. To cook outdoors and use a big iron dutch oven, you will want to double this recipe. Just line your dutch oven with heavy aluminum foil first, dump all ingredients in, put lid on,then from your already burning campfire, just use a shovel to scoop up hot coals and place on top of the lid. You will need to replace the coals when they cool with new hot one’s a few times during baking, takes maybe an hour. And yes this is great with vanilla ice cream – happy baking!!
