Dutch Oven Recipe Fruit Cobbler Delight

I’ve received a number of requests for dutch oven recipes and since I have some experience with that, I thought I would share one with you today. You can use your dutch oven in the home as well. Just bake it at 350′ until done.


  • 1 (30 oz.) can fruit cocktail
  • 1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 1 (30 oz.) can sliced peaches
  • 1 yellow or lemon cake mix; dry
  • 1 (12 oz.) can crushed pineapple
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup instant tapioca
  • 1/4 lb. butter; cut into pieces
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon


Into a 12″ Dutch oven add canned fruit (juice included), tapioca, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Stir to mix. Sprinkle cake mix evenly over top of fruit. Sprinkle brown sugar over top of cake mix. Dab butter all over top of brown sugar. Place lid on oven. Bake for 45 minutes to an hour using 12 briquettes top and 12 briquettes bottom heat. Cobbler is done when top is brown and cake has absorbed fruit juices and is no longer dry.

Variation: Combine 1 cup of crushed pecan halves with the brown sugar for a crunchier topping.

Serves: 8-10 depending on how much your family can stuff in their mouth!

    One of my favorite things to make in my Dutch Oven is red beans and rice. When you let it sit for hours and stew it tastes amazing. My second favorite is making apple puff pancakes. You can use a cast iron skillet and it is easier to get the pancake out but a dutch oven works just as well.
