Dutch Oven Pineapple Upside Down Cake

"There is nothing I love more than after a long day of chasing game around the mountains or desert of south east Utah to return to camp, my body exhausted and my energy expended, and have a warm, inviting Dutch oven meal waiting for me. Dutch oven meals are easy, require little prep work or clean-up, and always delicious."
