Here is an easy Dutch Oven peach cobbler recipe - and it is GOOD! :D

Easy Peach Dump Cobbler

Dutch Oven Recipe

2 (30 oz.) cans sliced peaches; drained
1 can Sprite or 7Up
1 yellow cake mix; dry ice cream of your choice

Into a 12" Dutch oven add peaches and spread out. Pour cake mix over peaches then pour the soda over the cake mix. Stir to mix completely. Place lid on oven. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour using 12 briquettes top and 12 briquettes bottom. Rotate oven and lid every 15 minutes.

Variation: Use the whole can of peaches, juice included, and stir in 1/3 cup of instant tapioca. As the cobbler cooks the tapioca will absorb the juices and make a nice bubbly cobbler.

Serve warm with ice cream.

Serves: 8-10

Thanks for the recipe, Mike! Looks great!

I notice you specify a 12" oven. Is that the most common size for recipes? Would that be the best size to start with, or is there another one that would be better for beginners?

Also, the recipe calls for rotating the oven and lid. What exactly does that mean? Just picking it up and turning it 1/4 turn? Or is there something I'm missing here?

12" is average, but there are other sizes. Check out Lodge Mfg., cast iron cookware -

Not cheap, but lasts forever if cared for. ;)
When you rotate lift the lid and turn the oven 90°, then set the lid back in the same place it was in. Evens out heat in case you have hot spots.
This is a correction, earlier I said 1/4 turn. My mistake!

Gracias, Mike, thanks for the info. I've looked at the ovens in the past, but so far haven't got one. I'll have to check 'em out a little closer, now.

You must be using a camp dutch oven if you're putting 'em on top too...no?
