Line a 12`` Dutch oven with foil. Pour in pie filling. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over filling. Pour pop over the cake mix. Stir gently to combine cake mix and pop only ( not pie filling ).
Bake 35 minutes until top is brown and springs back to the touch. Use approximately 9 coals on the bottom and 10-12 on the top.
Try Apple in one half, Peach in the other. Do not mix together.

Boil in a bag cake
Rule 1- Forget the instructions on the box. They are too complicated.
Rule 2- The basic mix is:
2 Cups cake mix
2 T powdered egg *
3/4 Cup water
After mixing the cake mix, boil-bake, 20 min. (at sea level). A fresh egg can be used in the place of powder.
Rule 3- For every 2000 ft. of elevation gain, add 1 min. to cooking time.
Steam in covered pot using freezer storage bags. One gallon for half a batch. Two gallon for big pots.
I divide a cake mix into two one gallon bags, and add
*1 heaping T of Soy Flour to each mix, and shake. Just add water, later. Keeps for weeks!
Use 1 in. of water. Some type of steamer grate must be used to support the bag.
Bag must be left open, DO NOT SEAL CLOSED!!!!!!!!!
You can not over cook as long as you do not boil out of water.
*Another good egg substitute to use in baking only, is to use 1 heaping Tbsp. Soy Flour dissolved in 2 Tbsp. water. This mixture may be used to substitute for 1 egg when baking.

Pumpkin Pecan Dessert (for when you cant make up your mind whether you want pumpkin or pecan pie)
1 can of pumpkin or equivalent amount of mashed
1C Splenda Brown Sugar Regular Brown Sugar will work also, just isnt low glycemic.
1/4 tsp cloves
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp salt
3 egg yolks
(for low fat, discard one yolk, use 2)
3/4C chopped pecans
1/2C Steel cut oats
1 3/4 C soy milk -- Regular milk will work, just not low glycemic.
3 Tbsp melted butter
3 egg whites stiffly beaten
Combine pumpkin, sugar, spices, egg yolks, and salt. Stir in Pecans, oats, milk and butter. Fold in egg whites. Turn into individual baking dishes or custard cups. Set dishes in Dutch Oven with about an inch of water in it. This recipe will give you about 5 cups of batter, so you will need dishes/cups that will hold that much and fit in your dutch oven. Deep ramikens work good.

WA’s Coyote Scat Munchums
(Don’t laugh until you’ve seen and tried them)
This is a great one for around the campfire after a long day of trekking and buckskinning.
2 cups brown sugar
1 cup butter or margarine
1/4 cup white corn syrup
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
14-16 ounce bag of Cheetos
Small cook pot
Large Dutch oven
Cooking Spray (Pam)
Line Dutch oven with foil sprayed with cooking spray, pour in the whole bag of Cheetos and set aside. Mix sugar, butter and syrup in a suitable campfire or gas stove safe container (large empty can will do in a pinch). Melt & stir in fire or on stove, then bring mixture to a boil for about 5 minutes. Remove from fire, add baking soda and stir. Pour over Cheetos and quickly toss them to distribute mixture evenly. Cover oven with lid and set coals (or briquets) top and bottom to bake at about 250 degrees for 1 hour, stirring every 15 minutes. Pour out on waxed paper sprayed with cooking spray. Quickly separate Cheetos pieces. Let cool.
And take plenty of fixings cause once your gang has tried them, one batch just won't be enough.
(You can try this at home by baking on a cookie sheet, but they just don't taste right with out the open fire, stars and days hunt gents.)

medium size pumpkin
two cups whipping cream
half cup brown sugar
nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon to taste
Supposed to be a favorite of George Washington (what wasn't, though)
Get a medium size pumpkin. Cut the top off like making a jack-o-lantern, but don't carve a face in it. Scoop the seeds.
Mix six eggs, two cups whipping cream, half cup brown sugar, tablespoon molasses, and nutmeg, ginger, and cinnamon to taste together. Pour into the pumpkin and dot with butter (put slices of butter on it).
Put the top back on, and bake for an hour and a half or so at 350 degrees.
Serve a slice of pumpkin and some of the custard on a plate

Brown or white sugar, or molasses
Learned this at chocolate making demonstration at Colonial Williamsburg. Normally the demonstrators work as tradesman but that day was their Â“funÂ” day away from their ordinary trade. We watched the demonstrates removed the bean from the shell and then roast them in a steel (not cast iron) pan. The shell is then cracked with a steel roller (they had steel rollers in those days) and the seed extracted and crushed into a paste to which flavorings like refined white sugar and cinnamon or whatever fancies the taste of the maker are added. Brown sugar or molasses could also be used to sweeten it. It'Â’s allowed to cool and is then broken into smaller pieces for cooking.
The chocolate makers at Colonial Williamsburg (who wonÂ’'t sell their chocolate) told us that after theirs, this Mars made period chocolate is the closest thing you will get to period chocolate ($1.50 a stick or $5.95 for a four pack or $12 a bar at Colonial Williamsburg).
Final tip from the Williamsburg chocolate makers - the longer chocolate is allowed to sit, the richer the flavor. Who would have guessed that chocolate could be aged like wine?

Quick & Easy Dutch Oven Apple Crumble
2 Cans Apple Pie filling (any fruit filling will do really)
1 BOX Instant Oatmeal Cereal, Cinnamon & Brown Sugar flavor
1 Stick butter, COLD
1 cup cold water.
Bowl, Dutch Oven (DO), wooden spoon, knife.
Dump the contents of the 2 cans of apple pie filling into the Dutch oven. Put the oven, uncovered on the fire to heat. When the filling gets hot let the sugar in the filling cook a short time, and carmelize just a bit, then take it off the fire.
Empty 8 of the packages of cereal into a bowl, and add just enough cold water to make a very stiff dough. CUT pieces of the butter into that dough, and mix with the spoon, but gently to not melt the butter but to leave small bits of it intact. (If you have a very large DO then add more of the packages of the cereal to stretch the dough)
Spoon the dough onto the hot apple filling, and spread to cover. Then place the lid on the Dutch Oven, and add a good pile of coals on top of the lid. Let bake about forty minutes or until the crust starts to toast. Serve
Not "authentic" but super easy to make in only a few minutes, and can cook while you make the rest of the meal.

My favorite DO dessert:
in a DO, place enough chopped apple for your crowd
Mix together 1-2 cups of flour; 1-2 cups brown sugar; 1-2 cups of white sugar; cinnamon (2-3 tablespoons) and 4-6 tablespoons melted butter. Top apples with this mixture. Bake at 350F for 45 minutes.
NOTE: in my little pie plate, I use 1-2 chopped apples; 1/4 cup flour, 1/4 cup brown sugar, 1/4 cup white sugar; cinnamon (I just sprinkle in as I don't measure this - I use lots), 2-3 tablespoons melted butter.
This recipe is pretty easy to adjust. The more apples or bigger your DO, make more topping to cover the apples. If you use a lot of apples, you may need to adjust the time for cooking to make sure all of the apples are cooked through.
I make the mix of dry ingredients and take in a bag when I go to rendezvous. When I share this dessert, people always want the recipe!
My favorite trail desert is so good and easy we also enjoy it at home. Ingredients are so light and compact, it works out great on a campfire.
Get my favorite the mixed dry fruit you see in stores or any dry fruit. Toss however much you want in a pan and cover with water. Toss in some of the large-size tapioca you can find in some stores (about a tablespoon per cup of fruit), the small size if you can't find the large. Put it on the heat and "stew" it with occasional light stirring until the fruit is rehydrated and the tapioca is dissolved and thickens the juice. Serve it plain or shave on some raw sugar from a cone of sugar (available in the Hispanic section of most supermarkets). Can't get or don't have the sugar cones, use dark brown sugar or raw honey. BTW- Don't have the tapioca, just stew the fruit. If you want it thickened without tapioca, use a little flour or corn starch.
Purty darned easy way to turn out a great fruit pudding. Learned it from my great grandmother long ago. She was born at the close of the civil war (1865) and lived to 99 in 1964. Claims it was her favorite desert as a kid when they came west from Kentucky in the family wagon in 1876. Too poor to afford nice things like train tickets.
Upside Down Apple Tart!
I saw this done on a cooking show, and tried it in a Dutch Oven, and Yes....
IF you use a steel or aluminum pie plate, you can do this over a campfire, AND then finish it in your Dutch Oven. Since the "filling" is already cooked you put your hot coals only on the lid of the heated Dutch Oven.
You can use a home made crust, you can use a pie crust bought in the biscuit section of your local market, OR you can use Filo Dough.
Three Granny Smith Apples
I stick of butter
3/4 cup of sugar (white or light brown)
1 pre-made pie crust from supermarket
1 apple peeler
1 alumunim pie pan
1 pair of pliers (aluminum pie pans don't have handles)
1 Dutch oven into which the above pie pan fits
1 serving plate bigger than the metal pie plate
This is one of the best videos on how to do this, and it's super simple. AMAZE YOUR FRIENDS! https://www.allrecipes.com/video/2948/how-to-make-apple-tarte-tatin/
About the closest I come to having a desert in the woods is a swig of rum.
