Easy Dutch Oven Dessert - Apple Cobbler

This one is a crowd-pleaser and gives back far more warmth and sumptuous flavor compared to the fairly minimal prep work. Just follow the directions as is from #freshoffthegrid, reprinted here just in case of broken links and such.

Apple Cobbler


1.5 lbs apples, sliced

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 tablespoon cinnamon

Cobbler Topping:

1 cup flour, (120 grams)

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 tespoon salt

1/4 cup butter, cold

1/3 cup milk


Prepare 21 coals and line a 10" (4 quart) Dutch oven with parchment paper.

MAKE THE FILLING: Core the apples and cut into slices. Add them to the Dutch oven and sprinkle with ¼ cup sugar and 1 tablespoon cinnamon. Stir to coat the apples in the cinnamon and sugar.

MAKE THE TOPPING: Combine the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, ¼ cup sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, salt) in a mixing bowl. Cut the butter into small pieces and add to the bowl. Using your fingers, rub the butter into the dry ingredients until a crumbly meal begins to form. Add the milk and gently combine to create a dough.

ASSEMBLE THE COBBLER: Tear off bits of dough and place on top of apples. You want little pockets of dough spread evenly around, not one large blob of dough in the middle.

BAKE THE COBBLER: Set the lid on the Dutch oven. Place the Dutch oven on a ring of seven coals, then evenly space 14 coals on top of the lid (this will create equivalent heat of a 350°F oven). Bake for 30-40 minutes, until the topping is golden brown.
