From WBCCI International Rally, 2013: Dutch Oven Seminar, Sunday June 30 12:00 to 1:30

This recipe is a great introduction to Dutch Oven cobblers. Bring the ingredients and your oven. You can use any fruit you wish and I prefer using fruit pie filling. If you only have a 10 inch oven, bring it and plan on making a great dessert. When finished, you can share this dessert with those watching, or take it back to your rig and share with your neighbors.

Fizzy Fruit Cobbler

(Reprinted from


  • Apple pie filling
  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 can 7-Up
  • 1 Tbsp. cinnamon


  • Any combination of flavors that sound good to you can be tried. This example is apple, yellow cake, and cinnamon. Another might be cherry
  • filling, chocolate cake, and powdered sugar. Or, blueberry filling, white cake, and grape soda.
  • Line the dutch oven with aluminum foil to make clean up easier if you aren’t adverse to doing that.
  • Pour the fruit filing into the bottom of the D.O.
  • Sprinkle the cake mix on top of the filing – do not stir it.
  • Pour the soda on top of the mix from a low height so it does not splatter all over.
  • With a fork, mix the soda into the cake mix, being careful not to mix it into the filling too much – a little is ok.
  • When the cake mix is stirred, sprinkle cinnamon on top.
  • Cook for 45 minutes at 325 degrees.
