This recipe was a test. We wanted to see if it would cook properly and it turns out that this chocolate cake was just about the best we’ve ever had. We were skeptical because the brownies we recently tried in the dutch oven didn’t turn out very well. Those brownies weren’t a fail, but not anything we will try again.
I knew we had to add something to the chocolate cake mix. Mini marshmallows and chocolate chips came to mind. They gave this cake a gooey wow factor. We will definitely be making this again! While we make this in a dutch oven, I think it would turn out just as well in a regular oven.
Best Chocolate Cake Recipe
This cake is super easy to make from very simple ingredients. I love taking cake mixes and adding to it to make it into something sensational.
Create hot coals for the dutch oven.
Line the dutch oven with foil and spray with cooking spray.
Mix the cake mix and soda together.
Fold the chocolate chips and mini marshmallows into the batter.
We used about a half a bag of chips and about a 1/3 a bag of the marshmallows.
Spread the batter into the dutch oven.
Place lid on dutch oven, cover with coals, and bake for 24-30 minutes depending on your heat.
Use your nose to determine when it’s baked. We pulled it out at 29 minutes.
Time will vary depending on the size of your dutch oven and heat of the coals.
Dutch Oven Cake
Doesn’t that look amazing? Look at the height of that cake! It was several inches tall. The chocolate cake was so moist. We loved the gooey spots where the chocolate chips and marshmallows were.
We devoured the cake and this is what was left. It was divine!!!
