And for dessert, chocolate cake topped with whipped chocolate frosting and cherries. It was divine and everyone gobbled it right up.
I don't have a pic of the finished product as it was eaten too quickly, but here I am finishing the last of my sous chef duties by frosting the cake.
Dutch Oven Chocolate Cake
1 (12 in) Dutch Oven (DO)
1 pkg. chocolate cake miix
1 (8oz) pkg. cream cheese, cut into 1/2 in cubes
1 container chocolate frosting
1 can cherry pie filling
Prepare cake mix according to package directions. Pour batter into a greased dutch oven and top with cream cheese cubes. Cook for about 45 minutes at 375', turning DO and lid one half turn in opposite directions every 7 minutes. When done, remove DO from coals and invert cake onto lid. Let cool. Frost cake and top with cherries.
* You could also make this cake in a regular oven. Just prepare the cake mix acorrding to the directions on the back. Make sure to top the batter with the cream cheese cubes before you bake it. Once cooled, just frost and top with cherry pie filling.
