Dutch-Oven Cobbler

Diane M. Recipe

By Diane M. dinee

When you are camping or simply don't want to heat up your oven, this is a fun treat to make! Try using different fresh fruit, or canned pie fillings. Or maybe with Raspberries or Cherries you can use a chocolate cake mix! The possibilities are endless, but you will also get the same response-"Wow!"

Ingredients

this recipe is for a 12
8 c
fresh peaches or berries mixed w/ 1/2 cup sugar (or 3-20 oz cans of pie filling)
1 box
of white or yellow cake mix
3/4 c
water or drained juice from fruit
1/2
cube of butter

Directions

1
For easy clean-up, line dutch over with foil. Be sure that all edges are kept within top edge, so that lid fits correctly.
2
Light coals before you mix the ingredients and get them going....I like to use this handy tractor disc on legs as a dutch oven stand, and this coal lighter tool with a handle. I've also seen people light their coals in a bottomless coffee can or just in a camp fire...
3
While coals are getting hot, pour fruit in foil-lined (spray pam on foil) dutch oven. Then mix the dry cake mix and liquid in a bowl. Pour the batter over the fruit in dutch oven. Slice butter over cobbler.
4
For a 12" dutch-oven put 12 hot coals under dutch oven and put about 12 coals on lid (if using a 10" dutch-oven put 10 coals). Let the cobbler cook about 45 mins. Check it occasionally to make sure it's not too brown. You want it a light golden brown.
5
When it's done, carefully remove coals from lid. Place dutch-oven on a wooden cutting board or heat-safe surface to serve. We love it with vanilla ice cream!
We also like this made with pineapple-cherry filling, or berries, or apple pie filling with spice cake mix!
