If you're a lover of all things pumpkin, this very moist and crunchy cake from Betty Crocker will definitely satisfy your sweet tooth. Tasting more like a pumpkin pie, the buttery topping sinks into the cake as it bakes. In my 12 inch dutch oven, the cake baked for 50 minutes with 12 coals in a ring around the bottom, 18 briquettes around the edge of the lid with 8 spaced evenly in the center. Be sure to test the center before taking off the coals and allow it to cool for at least 45 minutes before removing from your oven.
