Dutch Oven Peach and Mandarin Orange Cobbler

This desert can be a perfect cap to a perfect meal. Nothing says dutch oven like a cobbler, 
and nothing says cobbler like the fruity flavor or peach. Serve this up with a scoop of ice
cream and you'll feel a burning in your "fuzzy" navel.


2 30 oz cans of peaches strained
2 8 oz cans of mandarin oranges
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup brown sugar
1 yellow cake mix
1 can orange cream soda
4 tblsp butter cubed

Line the dutch oven with heavy duty foil, and to the bottom add the peaches and oranges.  
Sprinkle over the top the sugar and cinnamon. Pile the dry yellow cake mix in the middle of the fruit, and make a well on top. Pour the soda into the middle of the cake mix, and stir themix until it's moist. Spread the cake evenly over the fruit, and top with the cubed butter.

Cook for 45-60 minutes with 8-10 briquettes on bottom, and 14-16 on top. You can increase the briquettes on top if the cake still looks wet after the 45 minutes. Serve hot with cold ice cream or whip cream..... eat up cause it will go fast.

Oh Lindsay, I just got back from the store for ingredients for a dutch oven dinner in the mountains tonight. I sure wish I would have looked at this blog BEFORE I left. Bummer! Guess we'll have to head for the hills again very soon! :o) I'm always on the lookout for some yummy dutch oven cooking.
