Dutch Oven Peach Cobbler

We had this too at the camp out and it was quite tasty. My friend had all the ingredients in a bag and ready to go--the dry ingredients together, then butter and peaches each separately. It made it quite easy to throw together once at the camp site. I can imagine that I can make it in my Dutch oven, but place it in my oven at home at 350 degrees. This recipe is an adaptation from Byron's Dutch Oven Recipes.

Serves: 12

1 1/2 stick butter
3 cups flour
3 cups sugar
1 1/2 Tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
2 1/4 cups milk
4-5 cups sliced peaches
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1. Melt butter in a 12" Dutch oven. (use 10-12 briquettes on bottom unless you are stacking your ovens--then use whatever is top heat for first oven, and put 16 to top of this cobbler)

2. In a separate bowl combine flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt; stir to mix. Add milk and beat until batter is smooth. Pour batter over melted butter--do not stir. Carefully add peaches over top of the batter--do not stir. Sprinkle cinnamon over top.

3. Cover and bake using 10-12 briquettes on bottom and 18-20 on top for 45-60 minutes rotating oven and lid 1/4 turn in opposite directions every 10 minutes until crust is golden brown.

4. Serve topped with whipped cream or with vanilla ice cream.

Hi Sara,
this looks and sounds wonderful! I love peach cobbler, and don't own a dutch oven. I had one in my hands the other day, and chickened out at the last moment and didn't buy it. Thanks for the egging!
