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.
Berry Cobbler Dessert Camp Recipe
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. NOTE: If you are using a Dutch oven, baking times vary depending on outside air temperature, elevation and humidity so be ready to make adjustments as necessary. See my Dutch Oven Camp Cooking Tips for more information.

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.
Berry Cobbler Dessert Camp Recipe Ingredients
Preheat oven to 350
Prepare the pan
In 9 inch baking pan (pie plates work here or you can make this directly in a Dutch oven. If you want easier cleanup, you can use parchment paper liners, foil liners or disposable oven liners), add butter and put in oven to melt. Remove buttered pan from oven.

For batter, in small bowl stir these
- ¾ cup all purpose flour
- ¾ cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon salt
Add these to dry ingredients and whisk until batter is smooth

Pour batter into prepared pan
