Dutch Oven Coffee Cake Easy Camp Recipe
Prepare The Batter
Mix these ingredients in a medium size bowl
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
- 1 cup chopped pecans
Camp Cooking Tip: I like to measure and mix the dry ingredients at home and transport only what I need to the campsite in food storage containers. Then, I combine the dry and wet ingredients at the campsite just before baking.
- ¾ cup vegetable oil
- 4 eggs
- 8 ounce container sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
Preheat 10 Inch Dutch Oven To 325 Degrees
If you are using charcoal briquettes as a heat source with a 10-inch Dutch oven, you need 13 top/6 bottom = 19 total briquettes. If you are using a different size of oven, check this Dutch Oven Temperature Chart post for the number of briquettes you will need.
Camp Cooking Tip: To reduce or possibly eliminate the need for cleaning, you can use disposable Dutch oven liners. Coleman and Lodge have parchment paper liners, you can also get aluminum foil liners that come in different sizes so be sure to get the right size for your oven.
Prepare The Dutch Oven And Bake
Spray the inside of a pre-heated Dutch oven with vegetable spray
- Vegetable spray, then add all of the batter
- 1 cup brown sugar, sprinkle over the top of the batter in the oven
Bake Covered Till Done
This easy Camp Dutch Oven Coffee Cake is done when a knife inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean. At 325 degrees, this will take about 20-30 minutes depending on your outside air temperature and altitude so adjust the baking time accordingly. Rotate the oven and lid in opposite directions throughout the cooking process with a Dutch Oven Lid Lifter to ensure the cake is baked evenly. Check our Dutch Oven Camp Cooking Tips post for more information.
Sprinkle With Powdered Sugar And Serve
- 3 tablespoons powdered sugar
