Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins Camping Recipe

This is one of my favorite dutch oven recipes for camping! The classic combination of blueberries with a hint of lemon is one of my summertime favorites. I use it in refreshing drinks, syrups and baked goods. These Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins make a yummy breakfast or dessert.

A word of warning, the glaze is a little sticky and just might make Emily Post roll over in her grave as you lick this sweet and tangy goodness from your fingers!

The first thing you will do to make this Blueberry Lemon Dutch Oven Muffins Camping Recipe is preheat a 10-Inch Cast Iron Camp Dutch Oven to 400 degrees (25 total charcoal briquettes = 17 top/8 bottom).

If you don’t have a 10-inch sized oven, there are some alternatives … if you use a different oven size, you’ll need to adjust the number of foil liners you use and the amount of batter in each liner.

You must have enough liners to fit snugly in the camp Dutch oven so they hold their shape (and I use that term loosely) as they bake.

Camp Cooking Tip: Foil Cupcake Liners hold their shape better than paper ones when cooking individual muffins in a Dutch oven.

It is the Dutch oven itself that holds the liners in place but they will still form odd shapes as they bake.

When you want to make individual servings of camping dessert recipes or muffin-type camping breakfast ideas, it is a great idea to use muffin cupcake liners to evenly portion the batter.

Camp Cooking Tip: If you want your muffins to be uniform in shape, you need to use a Cast Iron Muffin Pan instead of cupcake liners.

Verify the size of Dutch oven required to fit the muffin pan.

For example, a muffin pan measuring 12 3/4 inches wide will require a 14-inch Dutch oven (NOT a 12-inch Dutch oven.)

Camp Cooking Tip: To ensure even baking in your Dutch oven camping recipes, rotate the camp oven throughout the cooking time so everything cooks evenly. 1/4 turn for the bottom (say clockwise) then 1/4 turn in the opposite direction for the lid (this would be counterclockwise.) I like using a lid-lifter for this process but you can also use heat-resistant gloves or another favorite flameproof tool.
Camp Cooking Tip: If muffins are done but not browned, move some of the charcoal briquettes from the bottom of the oven to the top of the oven and continue baking until the muffins are golden.
