I used my dutch oven this weekend to make a peach cobbler. I used a large can of peaches, a stick of butter, and a cake mix. My dutch oven is 12 inches. It was supposed to be cooked for 40 minutes. I didn't have a way to cook with charcoal this weekend so I used the oven at 400 degrees. The cake was over done and the texture was not the way I have tasted it before, when others have made cobbler. Does anyone have any advice? I wanted to know if my oven was too big for a single recipe or the temperature was too high? I think I have also heard of using a can of 7 UP. Maybe I did not have enough liquid? I would love to hear any comments you have to improve the cobbler experience. I hope to try again this weekend.
Also does anyone know what can be used as a base to cook on? I heard that a tractor disc works. I may have to buy a fire pit.
