Easy Peach Cobbler cooked in a Dutch Oven

My brother and I have camped for more years now than we are willing to admit. We tried for years to do peach cobbler in a cast iron dutch oven. At first we had every thing wrong - wrong oven and wrong recipe. We finally got the right oven, but ended up chiseling out more burned batches of bad cobbler than what we ate. Finally a friend gave us this easy to make recipe.

Step 1: Charcoal Chimney

All Dutch oven cooking starts with coals and the most efficient way to get them is to use a charcoal chimney. Two broad sheet newspaper pages waded up in the bottom and 25 minutes later you have enough to cook just about anything. The bonus is you do not have to use any lighter fluid.

I made this delicious cobbler for a group of eight and received rave reviews. I tripled the recipe and after forty five minutes, the briquettes were burned out and the cobbler was not done. I had to scramble to fire up some more briquettes and cook for another fifteen minutes. How many briquettes should I have used?

That is a basic recipe. Always turns out good. We alter a little for fresh fruit. 1 Cup of flour, 1 cup of sugar, 1 stick of butter, and your fruit of choice. The butter really gives it that kick and will keep it from sticking.

Sounds good! Can't wait to try it.

Loved the cobbler . Thank you. My kids now think I'm a master outdoorsman . The only thing that would make me cooler, in their eyes , would be that campsite ice cream . I'll be looking for it. Thanks again.

Thanks for the recipe, I have yet t do a cobbler in my D. O. collection of three. I have two 4.5 litres, and one 9 litre. I also have two different sized skillets and two double Pie Irons. I liked your roast post as well.
