Camping Peach Cobbler Recipe. This easy dessert is the perfect cast iron recipe to finish off any meal! All you need are cans of peaches, a yellow cake mix, and butter!
Camping food has a special place in my heart.
I am a firm believer that you should be able to enjoy good food while camping, and it should not be difficult.
That is where this cobbler comes in.
My husband calls it the “lazy girl” recipe. You only need 4 ingredients and it is ready to start baking in as little as 5 minutes.
Did I mention that it tastes incredible? You get the homemade flavor of cobbler while using the ease of a cake mix.
Camping Peach Cobbler
How to make easy camping peach cobbler:
- Open your canned peaches and pour into a 12 inch skillet.
- Stir in 1/2 can Sprite soda.
- Cover with your cake mix. Straight out of the box.
- Dot with butter.
Can you believe how easy this is? My brother and sister are actually the ones that introduced me to this sweet treat!
They also introduced me to dutch oven liners. Pop one of these into you pan and clean up becomes a breeze!
Now, let’s talk about some of the most common questions I get when sharing a cast iron recipe…
Is cast iron good for camping?
YES. I get this question a lot. Cast iron is wonderful for camping. It is incredibly durable, easy to care for, and practically made for fireside cooking! It is easy to clean and affordable! I talk about all of this in my cookbook: Cast Iron Kitchen!
How do I clean my cast iron while camping?
- Add clean water to your cast iron pan. Place over a fire or grill and bring to a boil.
- Use your spatula to gently break loose any larger food pieces.
- Remove from the fire. Scrub gently with a nylon bristle scrub brush.
- Rinse and dry completely (this is super important!! You do not want rust to form). We stick ours back over a grill or fire.
- Rub with oil.
