Who doesn’t love a gorgeous peach cobbler? Warm and juicy on the inside, crispy on the top, with a dollop of fresh cream or ice cream… You’re going to love our dutch oven peach cobbler recipe because cobblers and dutch ovens are made for each other!

When you use a cast iron Dutch oven, its thick walls ensure an even distribution of heat as well as greater heat retention, which means your dessert will be ready in record time. Clean up is easy too: no more soaking glass dishes or throwing away reams of aluminum foil. This Peach Cobbler in a Dutch oven will become one of your easy go-to recipes!

Let’s dive in!


Dutch oven peach cobbler FAQs

How many coals do I need for a dutch oven cobbler?

This recipe works perfectly for an 11-12 in cast iron dutch oven. If your dutch oven is smaller or wider, you’ll simply need to keep an eye on the cooking times. The smaller the dutch oven, the longer the cooking time. Or if you’re cooking over a campfire, just add a few more coals top and bottom.

Generally speaking, the number of coals on top is roughly double the number of coals underneath. That may sound counter-intuitive, but it’s true! There’s more need for heat up top as it’s exposed to the air.

Can I use Bisquick?

Ah yes, we have had Bisquick peach cobbler and it also tastes great! A peach cobbler with Bisquick would be a great way to make this more camping friendly. We've even seen peach cobbler recipes with cake mix!

If you love Bisquick, why not give it a try? To convert this into a peach cobbler made with Bisquick, simply use 2 cups Bisquick for the topping instead of the flour or oats. This Bisquick cobbler recipe may end up making your cooking the envy of everyone within smelling distance!

How long can I store my dutch oven cobbler?

Any leftovers will keep in the refrigerator in an airtight container for 4 days, and in the freezer for up to 3 months.

There is nothing better for breakfast than a slice of peach cobbler!

Can I use frozen peaches?

Yes absolutely. If you use frozen peaches for your cast iron peach cobbler, you will need about 6 lbs (they weigh more when frozen). Just be sure to thaw them before using so that they mix well with the other filling ingredients and they don’t have too much water.

If you do use thawed frozen peaches, you may want to add a little extra syrup or sugar as you won’t be using juice from canned peaches, and frozen peaches are less flavorful than fresh peaches.

What’s the easiest way to prepare a dutch oven peach cobbler while camping?

The good news is that you can easily bag up the ingredients before you leave your house.

For super speedy food prep, pop the dry filling ingredients in one container or bag, the dry topping ingredients in another, and use canned or frozen peaches.

You could even zest and juice the lemon and put it in a small container or jar with the vanilla extract. No need to bring the cheese grater!

Just bring a fork to mash the butter into the topping ingredients, as it will be mushy rather than hard. And you can bring a small container of UHT milk. Easy!
