One of the favorite desserts that my family (and scout troop) love is my Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler.

I use a couple of cans of sliced peaches (or even better – home bottled peaches) that I have drained into a separate bowl on the bottom of the dutch oven.. I sprinkle brown sugar and cinnamon on top of the peaches. I mix up two cake mixes (a yellow cake mix and a white cake mix) together using the juice from the peaches and a can of Sprite. I do use oil and eggs as I mix up the cake mix, but I have skipped them in the past (resulting in a little flatter cake). I pour the cake mix on top of the peaches and put the lid on the Dutch Oven.

I put about 8-10 briquettes on the bottom and 18-20 briquettes on the top that creates an oven environment to cook in.


It takes about ~25 mins or so to cook. You can check to see if the cake is done by sticking a fork in it. If it comes out clean, you are done.

Serve it up and makes sure there is enough for seconds.
