  • ½ stick butter
  • canned pie filling
  • 1 box powdered pancake and baking mix
  • 1 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1 quart milk


  1. Place Dutch Oven over medium heat and melt butter. Distribute it evenly over bottom and halfway up sides of Dutch Oven.
  2. Add 1 cup of brown sugar and about 1 cup of water.
  3. Place Dutch Oven over medium heat and bring to boil stirring frequently. Do not let it burn.
  4. Mix up batter with the baking mix and milk following the directions on the box for making dumplings, but add in ⅓ cup packed brown sugar.
  5. Pour canned pie filling into Dutch Oven, add ¼ cup water and bring to low boil, stirring frequently.
  6. Spoon this loose dough on to the top of the simmering fruit filling. Don’t worry if it looks sparse, it will expand as it bakes.
  7. Place cover on Dutch Oven.
  8. Shovel a pile of glowing coals from the campfire to a safe location on the ground. It should be a single layer and about 8 inches across.
  9. Set Dutch Oven to straddle these coals.
  10. Shovel a single layer of coals to cover Dutch Oven Lid.
  11. Allow it to cook about 15 minutes, then move the Dutch Oven away from bottom pile of coals.
  12. Using a lid lifter carefully peak inside. You’re looking for the top of the cobbler to be a nice, golden brown.
  13. Scrape away half the bottom coals and place Dutch Oven over remainder.
  14. Check every 5 minutes or so until top reaches the color you want.
  15. Serve the cobbler by itself or top it with a big scoop of vanilla ice cream!

I am very satisfied with the support I received from Pat and his quick (and clearly explained) solution to our problem! I told my husband that we need to renew our membership after our 1 year warranty expires.”
