Dutch Oven Cobbler

Dutch Oven Cobbler


  • 2  cans crushed pineapple
  • 3  cans cherry pie filling
  • 1  package yellow cake mix
  • 1/2  c  butter
  • 1  c  walnuts or pecans


Start with a hot fire and bed of coals. Grease the dutch oven thoroughtly. Add ingredients to dutch oven in the above order and spread evenly, but DO NOT MIX TOGETHER. Top with pats of butter and sprinkle with nuts if desired. Close lid and seal. Place dutch oven on bed of 15-25 coals, evenly spaced for even cooking. Place 10-15 coals on top of lid to heat from the top. Allow approximately 30 minutes for cooking. Check the cobbler by carefully lifting the lid (do not drop in coals or ashes), then put a knife in it and if it comes out clean, it is ready. The pie filling should be bubbling up around the edges and through the crust. Let it cool and enjoy alone or with whipped cream or vanilla ice cream.
