A few people have asked for a recipe -- it's pretty simple, especially
if you have either cooked in a dutch oven before or made a pineapple
upside down cake before.
You need: Yellow cake mix (Jiffy cake mix doesn't require eggs)
Maraschino cherries (if desired or available)
Butter or margarine
Heat water (or other food that you are cooking) in dutch oven. Meanwhile,
mix cake mix. Either use a metal pan that will fit into the dutch oven
*or* use foil. Put the pan into the oven so that it rests above or on
top of the water (or other substance). If you are using foil, wrap the
foil over the sides of the dutch oven, so that you have a "pan" inside
that just rests on top of the water/other but won't fall in. Use several
layers of foil. Put dots of butter in pan. Sprinkle brown sugar over
bottom. Place pineapple slices in a single layer on the bottom. Place
maraschino cherries in the holes in the pineapple slices. Pour cake
batter over this. Close up dutch oven, place coals on top if desired or
possible, and bake until done.
Also, you can include walnuts -- I just don't like 'em!
