    This is a easy, one dish recipe for camping! From the 'Dutch Oven and Outdoor Cooking' cookbook by Larry and Jeanie Walker. Can use white or yellow cake mix, but I recommend yellow.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 8



    Units: US | Metric

    • 29 ounces canned sliced peaches in light syrup
    • 18 ounces yellow cake mix
    • 6 ounces cream soda
    • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
    • 2 tablespoons butter


    1. 1
      Warm the Dutch oven, but do not get it too hot. To test the temperature, get someone else to pick it up out of the fire. IF they yell a lot, stuff their fingers in their mouth, jump around a lot, and revert back to their native tongue, it is probably too hot.
    2. 2
      Pour peaches into the bottom of the dutch oven. Reach in and carefully fish out the can lid you dropped inches Do not put the empty peach can in the oven, there is a limit to how much dietary fiber people can tolerate!
    3. 3
      Open the can of cream soda and pour it gently over the peaches. When you pour the pop on the peaches, use your good hand (the one with four fingers) in a gentle counter clock-wise motion if north of the equator, or clock-wise if south of the equator. It helps to hum a little tune and do a gentle rocking motion with your upper body. We call this technique the 'Swirl from Epanema".
    4. 4
      Dump cake mix evenly on top of the peach and pop concoction. Get a small stick and wipe in on your friends pants. Poke the stick into the mix with your bad hand (the one with five fingers). You may poke, but you must not stir. This is very important.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle the cinnamon on top of the dry cake mix. Best to use your good hand with the missing finger and let the cinnamon trickle out the hole where a finger used to be. You want a dry top and a soggy bottom, king of like your condition after sit on the ground after a rainstorm.
    6. 6
      Put small pats of butter evenly on the top of the dry cake mix. If you have guests who are concerned about too much fat intake, put it on anyway. The great taste of butter with its ill effects far outweigh the negligible benefits of a long and healthy life.
    7. 7
      Put the lid on the oven (not the peach can lid, but the Dutch oven lid). This is very important, because if you forget this step and put charcoal directly on the cobbler it tends to have a nasty flavor. If you forget the lid, just feed the cobbler to Scouts. They will probably not notice any difference compared to what you've fed them before.
    8. 8
      Place the oven on a nice bed of coals. Place coals on top of the lid.
    9. 9
      Cook for about 45 minutes, give or take 10. The bubbling of the liquid will mix the cake and liquid and produce a nice brown crust with gooey bottom.
    10. 10
      When finished, open the lid, savor the aroma and dish up the treat to all those who appreciate good cookings.

      Excellent cobbler, good flavor! Now saying this, I added more soda.This was after it had cooked in the oven for 35 minutes covered. I followed the recipe exactly, using home canned peach halves that had cinnamon sticks. I used most of the juice and 8 oz. of orange soda,(I didn't have cream soda) and when I took the cover off, the top of the cobbler (cake mix was clumpy and dry) in about four places, so I drizzled the balance of soda over the top that was dry. Since it was hot it spread out over the dry parts and what a difference it made! I then cooked it 15 to 20 minutes more Uncovered! Let it cool at least 15 minutes so the juice will thicken up. My family could not wait and ate it hot with ice cream. They said it had wonderful flavor and I agree. I will try the cream soda next time and I definitly will make again. I will wait until it has cooked for 35 minutes again to drizzle the extra soda. It made the topping just right. Thanks for posting!

      This sound so good. I wonder if you can do this in a conventional oven?
