No, the coils only stay on when the oven is on, it's just they remain glowing red for the entire cooking time so it's almost like a broiler and burns everything.
I just winged it last night before anyone posted and what I did worked out good.
I actually bumped up the temperature to 425F but lord knows what the actual temp was in that oven. I figured if you could bury the thing in hot coals, it would work better to up the temperature. I also preheated the dutch oven for about 20 min before pouring in the batter and left the top cracked open to let out steam. It worked out great, crust and center were ready at about the same time.
BTW, it was a blueberry crumbcake with streusel topping from the Barefoot Contessa show. The recipe needs more blueberries.
