A few summers ago my husband (who is an avid dutch oven cook) came up with an idea for a quick and delicious s’mores cake dessert. We were camping and the time and the recipe was an instant hit. It’s now become one of our favorite summer desserts. Since the recipe features a pre-made cake (that you get in the bakery of a supermarket) it’s quick to throw together, no pre-baking required!
We love to make this dessert on nights that we are grilling out. We always make it in our dutch oven and go back and forth between making it on the grill or with charcoals (depends on how we are cooking that night).
The nice thing is that since you’re already cooking out the grill is already hot. All you have to do is assemble the cake and let it cook on the grill.
We just got back from vacation and have had our fill of eating out and being away from home. All we wanted to do this week was have a good home cooked meal and STAY HOME. Vacations are nice but being home afterward is even better.
Since it was about time to make a dutch oven dessert again, we swung by Walmart and picked up the supplies we needed. Luckily they were all together in the store and oh so easy to spot.
Ready to make a cake for yourself? If so, let’s make s’mores!!

If you’re making this Dutch Oven Dessert with Coals (not on the grill)
For Coals: Use 8-10 under and 12-15 on top for this recipe. Check after 5 minutes. Then every 5 minutes after that. You just need to melt the marshmallows, be careful that you don’t over bake.
