Dutch Oven Drop Peach Cobbler
Recipe by Donald Ray Burger
Attorney at Law


_____ 1/2 package Duncan Hines Yellow Cake Mix
_____ 1 large can sliced peaches in heavy syrup
_____ 1/4 stick butter, cut into thin slices
_____ lots of cinnamon

1. Gather a ten inch Dutch Oven, oven gloves, lid lifter, long tongs, lid stand, charcoal and charcoal chimney. Also, figure out where you will place the pot of finished peach cobbler when you bring it in. It is heavy and big. A metal pizza pan placed on top of trivets works for me. You will need one for each Dutch Oven dish.
2. Start the charcoal in the charcoal chimney.
3. Open the box of cake mix and pour half of it into a bowl.
4. Open the can of peaches.
5. Slice the butter into thin slices and place them in a container of iced water. Trust me, if you don't they will melt and be very hard to work with.
6. In a 10 inch Dutch Oven place one ring of charcoals under the Dutch Oven. 7. Place the peaches and syrup into the bottom of the Dutch Oven.
8. Add the cake mix evenly over the top of the peaches. Don't try to mix the cake mix and the peaches together.
9. Place the slices of butter on top of the cake mix in a checkerboard pattern.
10. Sprinkle everything with lots of cinnamon.
11. Place the lid on the Dutch Oven and put 1 and a half rings of charcoal on the top lid. This should produce a 350 degree oven.
12. Cook approximately 40 minutes, rotating the lid about 180 degrees about half way through to make sure the heat is even.
Note: I make no claim to originality for this recipe. You will find it in some form in almost every Dutch Oven cookbook. This is one of the easiest Dutch Oven recipes and I recommend you start with it. Success is easy--and tasty.
