Cooking Stuff: Dutch Oven Peach-Berry Cobbler

by This is Carrie on July 18, 2008

One of my favorite things about camping is cooking in my dutch oven. This cobbler is less sweet than most (which is why I like it) but is a delicious way to eat up all the fresh summer fruits.

Please Note: This recipe is not exact in any way. Good Luck!

3 baskets of berries (blueberries, bosenberries, olalaberries, etc)
3 fresh peaches, peeled and chunked.
a sprinkle of sugar.

2 cups baking mix (recommended: Trader Joes multigrain baking mix)
1/8 cup cinnamon sugar
3 T oil
1 cup milk

Mix fruit and sugar together in bottom of dutch oven. Mix together topping and pour over top.
Cook with 8-10 hot coals on bottom and 15+ hot coals on top for about 30-45 minutes until topping is golden brown. Serve with a dollop of whipped cream.

Oh, that sounds so good! I remember my mom making (among other things) pineapple upside-down cake in a dutch oven on the campfire.

Sounds like you guys had a great time -the peach cobbler sounds great as well!

Did you line your dutch oven with foil? I know some people do to save on clean up. I don’t like cooking with too much foil though. What do you recommend to keep it from sticking so much?

I did line my oven but all the juice leaked anyway, so I won’t do it next time. I’ll probably just rub the oven down with butter.
