Easy Campfire Fruity Cobbler
What you need:
- 4 cups fruits of your choice (apples, berries, peaches etc.)
- 1/2 box vanilla cake mix
- 1 cup lemon lime soda
- 2 tablespoons coarse or granulated sugar
- 2 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into bits
- Whipped cream for serving
Preheat 45 charcoal briquettes until they’re glowing.
To make the batter, mix together the vanilla cake mix and the lemon lime soda in a bowl. The batter should be thick. Place the fruits in a lightly greased iron camp dutch oven then pour the batter on top. Add the butter then sprinkle sugar. Cover and place dutch oven over 15 hot briquettes. Using tongs, place the rest of the briquettes on the lid. Rotate the oven after 10 mins then cook for 20 more.
The cobbler is ready when the fruit juices are bubbling and the cake is golden brown. Remove from heat and serve with a dollop of whipped cream. Best consumed while still warm.
