Re: [DUTCH OVEN COOKING] Disaster ......TRIPLE CHOCOLATE MARSHMALLOW CAKE
- When I make my chocolate cakes in the DO, I take the
lid off to prevent condensation forming on the
underside of lid and "raining" on my cake as it cools;
I take a knife and trim along edge to make sure it is
separated; i dump the coals from the lid and place it
back on with a pair of welding gloves, then flip it
over onto the lid--then flip it again onto a cool lid
to display/serve from. Now I can clean the used oven &
lid while everyone devours the cake! In preparation
stage, I butter the sides & bottom of the DO, then
"flour" the DO with some of the cake mix prior to
mixing with the other ingredients. That way it doesnt
stick and the sides/bottom will be the color of the
cake mix--not white like with flour.
