How To Make Easy Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler
To make peach cobbler, prepare your dutch oven as you normally would.
Prepare (heat) 24-30 charcoal briquettes according to package directions.
Meanwhile, pour the peaches and juice on the bottom of your dutch oven. Sprinkle cinnamon on top of the peaches. At this point, you can also add some brown sugar, but we usually leave it out since it's plenty sweet. If you decide to add brown sugar, just sprinkle a thin layer across the peaches.
Next, take the dry yellow cake mix and sprinkle it evenly on top of the peaches. Pour the soda on top. Add just enough so that the cake mix becomes crumbly.
Place ¼"-thick pieces of real butter on top of the cake mix.
Put the dutch oven lid on and set the dutch oven on top of 8-10 hot briquettes. Finally, place the additional 16-20 briquettes on top of the lid.
How Long To Cook Dutch Oven Cobbler
Dutch oven peach cobbler will take about 30 minutes to bake, depending on how hot the briquettes are. Be sure to check the peach cobbler every 15 minutes to prevent burning. Turn the lid a quarter when replacing the lid to ensure even baking.
The cobbler is done when the cake is a light golden brown.
Serve hot peach cobbler with whip cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
