Dutch oven Peach Cobbler Recipe
This is the recipe I used at the Desert Rendezvous. Enjoy!
3 Cans no sugar added peaches in syrup
1 Sugar free cake mix
3/4 cup water
1/4 stick butter (chilled or frozen)
1-Dig a 6 inch deep pit and fill with charcoal. Light coals and allow to redden.
2-Dig 3 inch deep hole the size of dutch oven
3-Place 10 red coals in second pit and place oven on top. Preheat 5 minutes.
4-Mix cake, eggs and water in bowl or zip lock.
5-Add peaches to oven. do not drain.
6-Place cake mix over peaches. Make sure it is evenly spread.
7-Shread butter over cake mix evenly.
8-Place lid on oven and put 15 red coals on top.
9-Bake 45 minutes or until golden brown on top. Rotate oven 180 degrees every 15 minutes.
10-Replace coals as necesary to keep the 10 bottom and 15 top glowing red.
11-Serve, Do not eat it all yourself.
The pits keep the coals burning longer in the wind. The sugar free ingredients keep the cobler from being super sweet. I have used home made cake mix before and it turns out well, just very sugary. Google a homemade cake for a recipe for the mix.
