Dutch Oven Cobbler

2 large cans Fruit or Pie Mix (any flavor: peaches, apples, pineapple, etc)
2 sticks butter
1 box White or Yellow Cake Mix

1 Butter inside of Dutch Oven (use only ovens with lipped top because you need to put coals on top of oven). Alternatively, you can line the inside of the Dutch Oven with aluminum foil.

2 Place fruit in bottom of oven. Cover with cake mix and level it. Cut butter into about 10 pieces and scatter over the cake mix. It is ready to bake. (Note: if you use peaches, you may need to dispose of about 1/2 of the liquid. Crushed pineapple has about the right amount of liquid in it).

3 Place about 8 coals under the Dutch Oven and about 16 - 20 coals on top of the oven. Check after 30 minutes. Baking is often complete at 45 minutes.

Good served with Ice Cream.

Servings: 10
Preparation time: 15 minutes

***COMMENT: Heidi found this recipe and wanted to try it one year when we were camping at Michael's ranch. I brought my dutch oven and she brought the stuff to make this for dessert. It was delicious. It's not quite as easy to get this 'a la mode' when you are camping though. I remember she brought some ice cream to go with it and the cooler didn't keep it cold enough...plus the ice cream containers aren't built to hold up very well sitting in 1/2 melted ice in a cooler. I'm sure this would be really good in the oven too.
