I love cobblers. Peach, blueberry, cherry, pretty much whatever kind you make I will eat. The fact that this recipe uses one of my other camping favorites, a Dutch oven makes it even better!
- 2 cans (21 ounces each) pie filling
- 1 package yellow cake mix (regular size)
- 1-1/4 cups water
- 1/2 cup canola oil
- Vanilla ice cream, optional
Prepare grill or campfire for low heat, using 16-20 charcoal briquettes or large wood chips.
Line an ovenproof Dutch oven with heavy-duty aluminum foil; add pie filling. In a large bowl, combine the cake mix, water, and oil. Spread over pie filling.
Cover Dutch oven. When briquettes or wood chips are covered with white ash, place Dutch oven directly on top of 8-10 of them. Using long-handled tongs, place remaining briquettes on pan cover.
Cook for 30-40 minutes or until filling is bubbly and a toothpick inserted in the topping comes out clean. To check for doneness, use the tongs to carefully lift the cover.
Serve with ice cream if desired. Yield:12 servings.
Let’s be honest on some camping trips ice cream isn’t going to be available but for those with fridge freezers or top notch coolers, it can be done. It’s definitely worth it.
