Peaches are in their prime! Here’s a great (and easy!) way to make peach cobbler in your dutch oven.
Use a #10 dutch oven with a rimmed lid and short legs on the bottom. For easy clean up, insert a 3 quart aluminum casserole pan inside the dutch oven. The cobbler can be removed when done and the dutch oven remains spotless and clean.
The ingredients are easy.
- 6-8 peaches, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup self rising flour
- Cinnamon to taste
Pour the dry ingredients into the dutch oven and mixture thoroughly. Then pour the peaches over the dry mixture. Take a large spoon and blend the mixture. IMPORTANT: Only stir the mixture 4-5 times.
Now sprinkle the top with cinnamon. Put the lid on the dutch oven and make sure the lid fits flush. You may have to press down to crush the foil lip of the casserole pan liner to get a good fit.
Spread 8-10 hot coals on the ground. Use a pit or rake away any combustible grass or brush from the area. Place the dutch over over the hot coals. The legs of the dutch oven will keep from crushing the coals. Now pour the remainder of the coals on top of the dutch oven. Cooking time takes about 45 minutes but check the progress every 15 minutes. Adjust the temperature by adding of removing coals from the top and bottom of the dutch oven.
Serve hot from the dutch oven for some of the best peach cobbler that’s easy to make and no mess to clean up.
