Preheat 10 Inch Dutch Oven To 425 Degrees
If you are using charcoal briquettes as a heat source with a 10-inch Dutch oven, you need 18 top/9 bottom = 27 total briquettes. If you are using a different size oven, check our Dutch Oven Temperature Chart post to determine the number of briquettes required.

Melt butter in hot Dutch oven, then pour in batter and bake

Bake Covered Till Puffed
This easy dutch baby recipe is done when the batter is puffed and slightly browned. At 425 degrees, this will take about 30 minutes depending on your outside air temperature and altitude so adjust the baking time accordingly.

Campfire Dutch Baby Camp Cooking Tips
This easy Lemon Blueberry Campfire Dutch Baby recipe requires a 10-inch Dutch oven. If you only have larger sized ovens, just use a 10-inch pan (like a pie tin) inside your oven.
Getting super-fresh flavor at the campsite is really easy when you zest fresh citrus. I like this Zester Grater that comes with a plastic blade cover for my camping utensils. You are not always cooking with optimal lighting so covers on sharp tools makes good safety sense!
I hate carrying large amounts of dry ingredients like flour and sugar because I know I just have to lug the unused portions back home. So, for this easy Lemon Blueberry Campfire Dutch Baby recipe, I measure and mix my dry ingredients at home and transport only what I need to the campsite in lid-locking food storage containers.
In order to ensure your Lemon Blueberry Campfire Dutch Baby turns out evenly cooked, you should rotate the oven and lid in opposite directions during the cooking process. Using a lid lifter makes that task easy.
Stressing the importance of campfire cooking safety can’t be done enough. When handling hot equipment around the campfire, be sure to avoid burns by using the right campfire cooking equipment like these Dutch Oven Heat Guard Gloves.
