Recently, the wonderful folks at Lodge shared a very interesting recipe for a peach cobbler. They posted a recipe for a quick and easy way to make peach cobbler when camp cooking over an open fire. Now, I’m not a camper. The closest I get to cooking on an open fire is the gas stove top in my kitchen.
Yet, the recipe was so simple that I had to give it a try. I was intrigued to explore whether I could make it work while not wearing bug spray or sun tan lotion.
What follows is my adaptation of the original recipe for cooking within the comfort of the great indoors.
This Recipe Makes
A peace cobbler with 8-10 servings of cobbler. Yet, to be clear, I’ve only ever made this once and I’m the only one in my home who likes peach cobbler. So far, I’ve eaten two massive servings of the dessert and there is still plenty left.
Given how simple this lazy peach cobbler recipe is, it’s not really surprising that it takes less than 5 minutes to prepare.
Ingredients for Lazy Peach Cobbler Recipe
- A box or package of yellow cake mix
- 2 x 15 oz. cans of sliced peaches in heavy syrup (Note: The original recipe from Lodge called for 2 x 30 oz. cans. I picked up the wrong size at the grocery store, but the recipe worked out, so I’m sticking with it.)
- Ground cinnamon
- ½ stick of butter
- Preheat the oven to 375º F.
- Open the cans of peaches and pour them into the Dutch oven, including the heavy syrup too
- Open the cake mix and spread it evenly over the peaches.
- Sprinkle cinnamon on top of the cake mix.
- Slice the ½ stick of butter into small pats and place evenly about the top of the cake and cinnamon.
- Put the Dutch oven into the oven itself and cook for 40-45 minutes.
