Meanwhile again, for dessert we created bear scat cake, known in domestic settings as black forest cake. First we lined a 12-inch cast iron Dutch oven with heavy duty foil. Then we dumped in a can of cherry pie filling. Next we mixed up a boxed chocolate cake mix and dumped it on top of the pie filling. Oops…forgot to add the oil? No problem, pour it on top and gently stir, being sure not to disturb the cherries. As Julia Child says, no apologies, no explanations.
