Chocolate Upside Down Cake Dutch Oven Recipe

Return 
 
Ingredients:3 Tbsp butter (or margarine) or oil
1 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
5 tsp dry cocoa powder
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
1 cup water
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup dry cocoa powder
Instructions:Warm dutch oven over coals.
Melt 3 Tbsp butter in dutch oven and swirl around to cover sides.

In zip-loc, mix the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and cocoa. (Could do this beforehand)

In a bowl, combine flour mix with milk and vanilla. Pour in melted butter from dutch oven. (Just take what pours out, leaving the oven well-coated.)
Add nuts and stir well.

Pour batter into dutch oven.
Mix sugar, brown sugar, and cocoa in a zip-loc. (Could prepare beforehand)
Sprinkle sugar over top of batter.
Pour 1 cup of water over batter.

Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting toothpick or similar into center of cake - if it comes out clean, it is done.

When done, remove from heat and remove lid for about 5-10 minutes to cool. Then, put lid on and turn cake over onto lid. If all goes well, it will fall onto lid, but you may loosen the cake with a knife before flipping.

Serves 6
All recipes use a 12-inch dutch oven, unless specified.
