How to make it

  • A cast Iron dutch oven is ESSENTIAL for this recipe, nothing else works.
  • Layer 1: Drain 3 cans of peaches and put in cast iron dutch oven
  • Add 3 more cans of peaches, do not drain liquid, to the dutch oven
  • Layer 2: Pour both boxes of cake mix over the top of peaches (do not stir)
  • Layer 3: Slice up one stick of butter into little pats and drop all over the top of cake mix
  • Put the lid on the dutch oven and put in the campfire, near hot coals, not on the hot coals.
  • Place hot coals on top of the dutch oven lid. VERY IMPORTANT.
  • In about 20 minutes, give the dutch oven a 180 degree turn, to insure an even bake.
  • In about 20 more minutes, check under the lid.
  • Dessert is finished when peaches are soft and carmelized, juice will really thicken, you will have a hot, bubbly , golden brown, topping.
  • Don't let the dutch oven turn all glowy red, it'll burn

    uuummmm. Are you supposed to "make" the cake mixes first? i.e. eggs butter etc.

    I think the boys in Yellowstone will appreciate this as the 'coup d'etat' on Father's Day..... I will probably try it in my backyard before heading to the woods, just to ensure success !!!

    Great looking recipe....

    P.S. This would go well with my dessert coffee, but we MUST prevent Forest Fires '-)

    This sounds wonderful! This was recommended by Dynie. We are avid campers and she highly recommended this. I am wheat intolerant and don't know how this will come out with GF cake mix but will let ya know!

    We made this. It wowed the campers for sure! I made half the recipe but used the whole stick of butter.

    I had an aluminum Dutch oven given to me by my grandmother. It's rather thick. I lined it with the foil as another recipe listed. I also sat it on the coals with coals on the lid. It still took about 35-40 minutes to cook. It turned out great. We want to do it again sometime, maybe even at home at our next bon fire!

    I have this as one of my must-tries for our camping trip next week. I'd gotten this recipe online (not doubled- but that's a good tip!). It's so nice that you have a picture.

    Just what I've been looking for!! I'll definitely be trying this one at the next camping trip. I was looking for cake, but this sounds even better.

    This looks wonderful! I've often made cakes/puddings in the dutch oven, but I rarely remember what exactly I did since it's generally after a few beers. Next trip I'll come armed with your recipe!
