Recipe Notes

Step #1 Drain the juice as stated above and place the peaches in the Dutch oven (I used vegetable spray before adding the peaches). Put one peach sliced in the juice you set aside. Spoon the pie filling over the peaches in the Dutch oven.

Now you take the bowl with the juice with one sliced peach and add the cake mix. You follow the cake directions (but you don't need the eggs). Spread the batter over the peaches evenly in the pan. By now the briquettes should be ready to bake our cobbler. Bake at 350 degrees for about 30-35 minutes or until the cake pulls away from the sides of the Dutch oven.

Step #2 Now, that the coals are white and HOT, the Dutch oven is ready to bake the yummy cobbler. You want to make sure the Dutch oven is hot, just as you do your conventional oven. It must be hot BEFORE you add the cake batter, etc. It really doesn't take very long to get the temperature required, trust me. It is so fun to do this!

Step #3 We have already combined the cakeĀ batter as indicated in the recipe above. I spread the batter evenly over the peaches and pie filling in the Dutch oven. Next, I placed the Dutch oven on top of the 8 hot briquettes that were placed on the rocks. The next step is to place the lid on the Dutch oven with the 14 HOT briquettes on top. You can use 24 to 25 briquettes as shown in my printable list above.

Step #4 Now you bake it for 30-35 minutes until the cake starts to pull away from the sides of the Dutch oven.
