The Art of Mastering Cooking
If you want to have a perfect dish using your Dutch oven, you should be mindful of temperature control. Dutch ovens are used to cook over open fire, but if you are using it for camping then you can use your oven over charcoal too.

More coals are required for deeper ovens. More coals are also needed on windy or cold days. The briquettes that you should use are the ones that are of good quality, which are easy to light and will last for a long time. If you want to have even temperature while cooking in your Dutch over, make sure that you don’t only put briquettes under the cookware but also on top of it.

You should first let the cake cool in the oven for around 10 minutes. A spatula can then be used to loosen the cake by running it around the inside edge of the oven. Place a piece of parchment paper across the top of the oven so it replaces the lid. One gloved hand should then be put on the oven lid and the other under it. You can then flip the over carefully over the lid. Tap the bottom and sides of the oven lightly to ensure the cake didn’t stick.
