Apple Spice Dutch Oven Coke Cake

"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!"

Ready In:
1 cake


  • 1 (18 ounce) box spice cake mix, you will not need ingredients on back of box just use dry
  • 2 (20 ounce) cans apple pie filling
  • 1 (12 ounce) can Coke
  • 14 cup margarine or 1/4 cup butter, melted
  • 14 cup brown sugar
  • 1 (8 ounce) container Cool Whip, I use the Cool Whip in a spray can


  • Start burning 21 briquettes for a 10" dutch oven, if u are using a bigger oven you will need to add more *remember always have more on top then bottom when baking*.
  • Pour melted margarine or butter in dutch oven, if you have no way to melt it just cut into pieces and place around bottom evenly.
  • Sprinkle brown sugar evenly over butter.
  • Add both cans of apple pie filling.
  • Open cake mix and add it (dry) on top of pie filling.
  • Pour can of coke over cake mix.
  • I always lightly stir in coke to the cake mix after pouring (be careful not to mix in apples) but this step is not necessary.
  • Cover with lid.
  • Put 8 briquettes on bottom of dutch oven and 13 on top, this should equal about 350 degrees for a 10" dutch oven.
  • Bake for about 50 min to an hour, or until toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle.
  • Scoop out heaping servings and top with Cool Whip, we use the Cool Whip in the spray can.
  • ENJOY!
