When a friend told me about this cake I could hardly wait to try it in my dutch oven. It's a perfect camping recipe, none of the ingredients require refrigeration and all you need is a bowl, a spoon and a can opener. I found several variations of this dessert online, you can also make it with a spice or angel food cake mix and eliminate the spices. You might prefer an apple cider glaze or dusting it with powdered sugar over the frosting, for convenience the canned icing cannot be beat. In my 10 inch deep dutch oven the cake baked for 35 minutes with 10 coals in a ring around the base of the oven, 14 around the rim of the lid with 6 spaced evenly in the center. For a cake that has absolutely no eggs, oil or butter in it, it is surprisingly good and probably a little healthier for you too.
