One of my Cross Stitch customers, Debra Wages, was nice enough to send me one of her favorite recipes –

The Lazy Cobbler – a Peachy Yummy Dessert!

All you need… besides the ingredients ….  is a Dutch Oven and some charcoal!

Debra used this recipe at Girl Scout Camp for 30 years! Her daughter Melissa has won several Golden Spoon awards with it at Boy Scouts!


12″ Cast Iron Dutch Oven with flanged lid (with feet)

2 cans sliced peaches, in syrup (29-30 oz cans)

1 package white or yellow cake mix

Ground Cinnamon

1/2 – 1 stick butter or margarine

Granulated Sugar

Place dutch oven over 15 hot charcoal briquettes. Pour contents of peach cans into dutch oven. Spread dry cake mix evenly over peaches.

Sprinkle cinnamon lightly over top (if you don’t like cinnamon, omit it)

Cut butter or margarine into slices and arrange over top.

Sprinkle sugar lightly over top (a tablespoon or 2 is fine)

Place lid on top of oven and arrange 10 charcoal briquettes on lid in a checkerboard pattern.

Bake for about 45 minutes or until done (the syrup in the peaches will buttle up and cook the cake mix)

Makes about 8 servings

If you don’t have a dutch oven, make it in your oven!  Debra makes this in the oven at home for a quick treat and serves it with ice cream. Just pour in a 9″ x 13″ pan and cook at 350 degrees.

Thanks Debra! My mouth is watering, I can’t wait to try it!
