Dutch Oven Cobbler...

Summer and camping season is fast upon us...and this is a fun treat while camping or just for an outdoor dinner party...this is a tried and true recipe from my Aunt Mary...I like the use of the aluminum foil on the bottom...have you ever washed out a cast iron skillet while camping with no hot water? What a mess!

Dutch Oven Cobbler..

3 cans Pie filling or sliced fruit
(apples, peaches, pineapple, strawberries or raspberries)
1 yellow cake mix

Line oven with aluminum foil (one piece if possible) Mix up cake mix, do not use eggs. Use the juice off the fruit or water to mix up the mix. Mix the batter thin enough to pour. Pour the fruit into the Dutch oven, then pour the cake mix on top. Bake for about 30 minutes with most of the heat on the top of the oven. Cake is done if you can insert a knife and remove it without dough sticking to it. Serve with whip cream or ice cream. This may also be baked in a regular oven..
Note: Use a 12 inch oven with 6-8 coals on bottom and 12-15 coals on top.

get your coals starting.....

gather up all your ingredients and utensils...

get your Dutch oven ready...

place your fruit in the bottom of the pan...

mix the cake with the juice from the fruit..

whip it up until smooth and light...

pour evenly over fruit...

here it is ready to go! put the lid on...

place the 8 coals underneath and the 12-15 on top, then go play for a while..if after 30 minutes it is not ready, just put the lid back on and it will continue to cook...

time to check it...and....

it is finished!!! Yay! be careful the neighbors will come running!

This is so tender and moist, perfect with a cup of tea or large glass of milk!

Cheers to Happy  !!
