Kendall's Easy Peachy Cobbler

2 (30 oz.) cans sliced peaches; drained (Don't forget to drain peaches...done that before :(
1 can Sprite or 7Up
1 yellow cake mix; dry
ice cream or whipped topping....your choice

Into a 12" Dutch oven add peaches and spread out. I like to add about keep about 1/4 cup of the peach juice to add into the dutch oven with the peaches, this makes it a little more moist. Pour cake mix over peaches then pour the soda over the cake mix. Stir to mix completely. Place lid on oven. Bake for 30-40 minutes using 15 briquettes top and 9 briquettes bottom. Rotate oven and lid every 15 minutes.
Serve warm with ice cream.
Serves: 8-10

Tip: When "baking" something in a dutch oven, here is an easy way I found to know how many briquettes to use: First take the diameter of the oven, for Example a 12". Times that by 2. You will need 24 briquettes. Then since you are baking just use the "3 up, 3 down rule". Since it is a 12" (12-3=9) would be 9 on the bottom of the Dutch oven, and 3 up (12+3=15) would be 15 on top. You want more heat on the top since you will be baking it. This 3 up, 3 down rule works with any size dutch oven !!

  1. We use this all the time, but we use cream soda instead of 7-Up.
