Here is a dutch oven recipe for Chocolate Cherry Lava Cake.We’ve been on six camping trips this year. That means a lot of good food made over the campfire or in the dutch oven. Our favorite main dish has been the Dutch Oven Chicken & Veggies. This Chocolate Cherry Lava Cake is our favorite dessert.

We’ve made many desserts in the dutch oven over the years. They all have had something in common. They were made with a prepared box mix. I love taking an ordinary power cake mix and turning it into something extraordinary.
I have to tell you that this cake didn’t turn out as planned. It was supposed to be more of a traditional dump cake where the cake is spongy on top of a gooey cherry layer. I think there was just too much liquid for that to happen. It turned out to be an outstanding mistake.

You can see that we used a liner in our dutch oven. I use them when we make desserts. You can buy them here.This shows the set up of our charcoal for the dutch oven.This ended up being my husband’s birthday cake. I was worried he might not like it because he’s not a cherry fan, but he loved it. We quickly devoured the entire thing. It was the perfect combination of spongy and gooey. Yes, we were downing it as I took photos.
