Blueberry Pineapple Upside Down Cake (For the Dutch Oven)

For Topping:

  • 1/4 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 can sliced pineapples (juice reserved)
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • Maraschino cherries

For Cake:

  • 1 2/3 cup all-purpose unbleached flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/4 cup pineapple juice or lemonade
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla

Oven Directions:


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a 3-quart Dutch oven over medium heat, add butter and brown sugar until it has completely melted and stir until sugar begins to caramelize. Add pineapple slices (reserve juice for later) and blueberries. Arrange maraschino cherries and turn off heat.
  3. In a mixing bowl, add ingredients for the cake and stir to mix well.
  4. Dump cake mixture on top of topping mixture.
  5. Add cast iron lid and set in the oven for 45-50 minutes, or until toothpick is inserted and comes out clean.
  6. Allow to cool for 10 minutes and serve warm.

Campfire Directions:

*If you are cooking outdoors, line your Dutch oven with foil because cleaning the sticky caramel from cast iron in the outdoors is a real pain.

  1. Place about 15 hot coals in the fire pit and place the Dutch oven over the coals.
  2. Add the butter and brown sugar to the hot Dutch oven and stir occasionally until butter starts to melt and the sugar starts to caramelize. Keep an eye on it because it can burn quickly!
  3. Mix cake mix ingredients and follow the same directions as stated above.
  4. When you place the lid on top of the cake, place about 15 coals over the lid of the Dutch oven and allow the cake to cook for 15-20 minutes. Carefully lift the lid and working quickly stick a skewer in to check the cake. The time may vary depending on your coals. Estimate anywhere from 20-40 minutes.
