Berry Cobbler Dessert Camp Recipe

Berry Cobbler Dessert Camp Recipe - Perfect for making in a Dutch Oven, Camp Oven or RV Oven - Camping For Foodies .com

Who knew camp cooking skills would come in handy preparing for a cross-country move?  Moving is no easy task–especially if its over 1,500 miles from point “A” to point “B”.  When our parents decided to make Arizona their full-time home, my sister and I flew out to Chicago to help with the packing.  We packed the entire house before we started on the kitchen.  Our challenge: use whatever was in the fridge, freezer and pantry before the moving van arrived.  That’s where this super easy (always great for camping) throw-together dessert came from.  Here’s how you make it. Psst we’re compensated…see our disclosures.

If you are using charcoal briquettes with your Dutch oven, a chimney starter is great because it is a fast, efficient and clean way to light your charcoal.

    This reminds me of a recipe that I made once with my family. But, I don’t recall ours having vanilla…I think that would really make it delish! I will give this a try very soon.
