Cherry Dessert

Dutch Oven Cooking. Enjoy!


  • 1 can crushed pineapple
  • 1 can cherry pie filling
  • 1 box white cake mix (dry)
  • 1 stick melted margarine
  • 1 c chopped pecans


Oil Dutch Oven. Layer in the order given. Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes.

In order to control the temperature of your Dutch Oven: add 3 to the circumference of the lid, and subtract 3 for the bottom number. This will give you the number of hot coals of charcoal that you need to achieve 350 degrees. (example) A 10" Dutch Oven would need 13 coals on top and 7 underneath.
