I think the topping would have turned out better if I had used canned peaches instead of pie filling. The extra juice in the peaches would have soaked up the cake mix better.

We LOVE dump cakes, We do them all the time with the scouts.  We did 4 types with the girlscouts when we helped them with their camp out.  Kind of addicted to them now. LOL


I like to put a box of instant chocolate pudding mix over the top.  It hardens a little bit and helps keep some of the moisture in the cake.

Has anyone tried a pit lined with hot rocks and covered with leaves to bake meat?

Watched it done in Maui for Kahlua pig....best pig I have ever had. When they took the leaves off all the meat was in a pile, just fell off the bones...dang now I'm hungry

Ive cooked fish by slicing up a lemon and putting some in the body cavity. then wrap them in burdock leaves and pack with mud. set them in the coals of a fire for about 35-45 minutes. (about 1 inch of mud)  works well.  ive also cooked alot years ago with an earth oven.   Dig a 5-6 inch pit big enough to put your food in. build a fire in it and get a good coal bed. cover with a layer of dirt no more than about a half inch deep. place squirrel, chicken or rabbit parts wrapped in leaves or tinfoil (season to taste if you like, i used butter and seasoning salts) lay these on the dirt covered coal bed then cover over with a couple inches of dirt. let sit for 2-4 hours or longer (trust me it wont burn) even squirrel falls off the bone.
