This updated version of an old cowboy dessert, sometimes called dump cake, will serve 12 hungry cowboys.
Cook in a 12’ Dutch oven.
Use 2 cans slices peaches or pineapple with syrup,(blackberries, cherries, etc. will also work). If using fresh fruit add 2 cups of water or fruit juice.
1 package of white or yellow cake mix,
1/3 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
Place fruit into Dutch oven.
Spread cake mix evenly over fruit.
Sprinkle cinnamon and thin slices of butter on top.
Place 15 hot charcoal briquettes under the bottom and 10 on the top of the lid of the Dutch oven.
Bake for about 45 minutes or until you can stick a toothpick into the cake
without having batter on it when you pull the toothpick out.
Or, you can place in glass baking dish and place in oven at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or, until a toothpick comes out of the center clean.
