More Dutch Oven Desserts – Cabela’s Ladies Night






The first “Ladies Night” for the Springfield, Oregon Cablela’s was a great success.  Gathered around warm briquettes, gals listened to tips on Dutch oven desserts while sharing their own outdoor experiences.  The topics ranged from how to set up a camp for Dutch oven cooking to how to use a Dutch oven in the kitchen or on the back porch.  After the seminar, the Q & A covered topics from how to cook a “rutty” deer to food preservation, smoking meat, no-fail marinades for game and gluten-free baking.

It was a night I particularly enjoyed due to the fact that the ladies came out to learn something new.  As usual, I was the one who learned a lot from listening to stories and comments shared by experienced outdoors-women.

Just a switch up from my last DO dessert seminar, Peach Cobbler and Berry Lemon Cake were on the menu.  Please enjoy these easy 3 and 4 ingredient recipes in your oven, backyard or on your next camping trip!

Peach Cobbler

  • 1 cube butter
  • 2 boxes Cabela’s Cobbler Mix
  • 1 12-ounce can evaporated milk
  • 2 21-ounce cans peach pie filling

Melt butter in the bottom of the Dutch oven (will just take a minute over a bed of coals).  Mix Cabela’s Cobbler Mix with milk.  Pour into Dutch oven and top with both cans of fruit (a great fresh substitution is 4 cups fruit mixed with 1 cup sugar and 1/2 cup flour).  8-10 coals under the oven, 15 or so on the lid.  Ready in 30-45 minutes.

Berry Lemon Cake

  • 2 21-ounce cans berry pie filling
  • 1 box lemon cake mix
  • 1 can 7-up or Sprite

Spread berries in the bottom of the Dutch oven.  Sprinkle dry cake mix over fruit.  Pour can of 7-up/Sprite over the cake mixture.  8-10 coals under the oven, 15 or so on the lid.  Ready in 30-40 minutes.

Scott even let me drive the new truck… Hey, it was Ladies Night and I knew the gals would appreciate the fact that my outfit matched my vehicle!
