Chocolate Strawberry Cake

Dry Ingredients:
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon nutmeg
11/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 cup cocoa
1 cup chopped pecans
2 cups powdered sugar

Wet Ingredients:
3 eggs, beaten
3/4 cup corn oil
3/4 cup half and half
2 cups chopped ripe bananas
1 cup crushed pineapple
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 tablespoons lemon juice

Mix all of the dry ingredients in a large bowl. Add the eggs and the corn oil and stir until just moistened. Stir in the rest of the ingredients gently. Lightly oil and flour a 12 inch Dutch oven and pour in the batter. Bake about an hour putting 20 coals on the lid around the rim, 3 coals directly under the oven, and 6 to 8 around the bottom outside edge. Rotate the oven and the lid every 15-20 minutes to even up the heat. Near the end of the baking time stick a big toothpick in the center to make sure it's done. Flip the oven over with the lid on and remove the oven. Let it cool off and frost. We like icing made with 2 cups powdered sugar, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, 1 tsp. vanilla, and 1 package cream cheese. Add a little water if it's too stiff.
