A camping oven or in your kitchen? Or if in your kitchen, is there a particular reason for needing to do it that way. No regular oven?
This question has been asked before and while a pudding can be made by heating over
the heat source (like a stove eye), a cake requires heat more or less all around it.
SO if the goal is a cake without a kitchen oven, it will be hard to do it in a dutch oven unless using charcoal and the type of Dutch ovens with flat tops for camping use.
In camping books there are recipes for adapting home style Dutch ovens (with domed lids) by inverting the lid and putting the coals on that for the top heat source. But the cake may touch the top and stick.
I guess we need more information about the hows and whys of the question. And there is another thread somewhere.
