I get so excited just thinking about this cake! It is so simple to make, especially when camping. All your hungry campers will be drooling when they smell yummy spice cake wafting through the air!!! This recipe is so versatile...we have made it with yellow cake or chocolate cake and cherries, raspberries, or peaches the list goes on and on! I'm sure you could bake this in your oven at home also at 350 degrees in a cake pan.*TIP* Line your dutch oven with parchment paper; one sheet horizontal and another vertical to cover any empty space and press to the sides & bottom as close as you can. Make sure that the paper hangs over the dutch oven. Add ingredients as usual and bake, when done just throw away the paper and no clean up, YAY!
For the full Indian curry experience, serve this dish with warmed naan ( we use Recipe #258001), sliced green onion, and a bowl of spicy chutney. Be sure the lid to the Dutch oven closes tightly over the spinach so no steam escapes while the dish is cooking. Found in Vegetarian Times.
Want to impress your guests but still cook something homey? This is it... this tastes wonderful, of course, but cooking it in the dutch (cast iron) oven makes it absolutely GORGEOUS. You won't be disappointed!
I cook these in a dutch oven (cast iron with lid). You can also use any heavy covered pan. Or cook them at your campsite with 10 charcoals on the bottom and 14 on top of your dutch oven maintaining 160 degrees. Be sure to have rolls or corn bread on hand.
