This recipe as written is for preparing an upside-down cake in a
Dutch Oven while camping.


1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 can sliced pineapple
1 box yellow cake mix
1 egg
water (quantity per cake mix directions)

Place butter and brown sugar in the oven and stir until well mixed.
Place the pineapple slices in the butter and sugar mixture in the
bottom of the oven. (Reserve pineapple juice to mix with water to
produce quantity sufficient to make cake mix according to directions
on cake mix box)

In a separate bowl, mix the cake mix and the egg.

Pour this batter over the pineapple in the oven, then put the lid
on the oven and bake about 30-40 minutes.

Test the cake for doneness with a toothpick.

When the cake is done, remove the coals from the oven, remove the
lid and let the oven cool for about 10 minutes. Using a large
cutting coard or a piece of card-board, covered with waxed paper,
hold the board on top of the oven and invert the oven quickly.
This will allow the cake to fall on the board and the pineapple
will be on the top. A safer way to support the cake when you invert
it is to cut the cardboard in a round piece the same size as the
cake, and it will fit inside oven on the cake; then when the oven
is inverted, the cardboard can be held directly under the cake.

I would like to make this cake, but how many coals do you use and the placement of those coals?
