Sweet Dutch Oven Apple Cobbler – Easy and Delicious

This is a pretty simple and quick dessert for your next camping trip. When I made it to take photos for the website, I used an aluminum foil dutch oven liner. Some people would rather not. Some people use parchment paper as a liner. I’ve made it each way. Since I was using a new oven that didn’t have a lot of seasoning on it, and I didn’t have a lot of time after our meal for cleanup, I opted to take the easy way out and use a liner in this case.

This has been a favorite at campouts with our Boy Scout troop, and our family. This cobbler is very similar to an apple crisp with a crumbly brown sugar topping when it’s done. It goes really well with some ice cream!

  • 10" or 12" Dutch Oven


  • 2 21 oz cans apple pie filling
  • 2 8.5 oz boxes of Jiffy corn muffin mix
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tbsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter


  • Put both cans of apple pie filling on the bottom of the dutch oven
  • Spread both boxes of corn muffin mix evenly over the apple pie filling
  • Mix the cinnamon into the brown sugar, and spread evenly over the muffin mix
  • Slice the stick of butter into pats and spread them on top of the cobbler.
  • Bake with 12 charcoal briquettes on the lid, and 15 under the oven for approximately 30 minutes.


Depending on your preference, you can use an unlined oven, or you can use a foil or parchment oven liner.  If using an unlined oven, make sure it is well seasoned and put a light coating of Crisco or vegetable oil on it prior to making the cobbler.
