One of Sean’s favorite things to eat is cobbler, so when Sean came home one day a few years ago and said he was going to make cobbler that night (he DOESN’T COOK) I was shocked. I didn’t know that meant he was going to be using just 3 ingredients and cooking it outside. I was skeptical to say the least, but I was quickly put in my place when I tasted this cobbler….IT WAS AMAZING!
So quickly after he made the first cobbler, we didn’t stop! We kept trying all different kinds. Peach, Apple, Cherry…they are all delicious!
To make the cobbler, we use a bunch of charcoal, and we always use our Homeright Electrolight to heat our coals. We put them in a “chimney” and then without using any starter fluid etc we light the coals. To do that, use the Electrolight, plugged in, and hold it up to the inside of the chimney. Within about 30 seconds you will see them all starting to spark and in just a few minutes the coals will heat up. Because I don’t have a place to cook this outside, I place it inside my charcoal grill. It also works out because once I light the coals, I can slightly close the lid to keep the heat inside, helping them to heat up even more.
While the coals are heating up, we prep the cobbler.
Dutch Oven Apple Cobbler
- 2 Cans Apple Pie Filling
- 1 box yellow cake mix
- 1 can Sprite
- Dutch Oven liner
Put the liner inside your dutch oven. Empty the contents of the pie filling cans into the bottom of the dutch oven liner. Then sprinkle the cake mix over the top of the filling and top off with the Sprite. Stir the cake mix a little bit just so there’s no dry powder left. Put the lid on the dutch oven.
Now it’s time to cook it. Spread out half of your coals into a circle the size of your dutch oven. Then using tongs or a leather glove, use place the remaining coals on top of the dutch oven lid.
Now let it cook for 45-60 minutes. I close the lid on my charcoal grill an dopey the vent to keep the heat inside. Once cooked, use a lid hook to remove the lid and SERVE hot with whipped cream or some ice cream on top!
