Dutch Oven Blueberry Cobbler

This summer, I’ve shared two of the easiest Dutch oven recipes we love:  Perfect Pineapple Upside Down Cake, and Dutch Oven Potatoes to get anyone unfamiliar with dutch oven cooking off on the right foot. This recipe for Dutch Oven Blueberry Cobbler is the third in the “easy” series before diving into scratch cooking.

It works with just about any fruit including fresh, canned, or pie filling.  I like it with fresh fruit, and since we have been stocking up on blueberries, that’s what I’m using for this post.  If you do use fresh fruit, it could be a little tart, so if you like, sprinkle some sugar or splenda over the fruit before making the recipe.

Also, it works well with different flavors of cake mix. That’s how family recipes evolve is someone takes something simple, and changes it up. The versatile options are endless!

And face it, nothing sounds better on a cool fall night than a bowl of clam chowder and warm bread followed up with a little Dutch oven blueberry cobbler. Sooo Good!

  • Author: Janet Bowman
  • Prep Time: 15 minutes
  • Cook Time: 30-45 min
  • Total Time: 45-60 min
  • Yield: 8-10 servings 1x
  • Category: Desserts
  • Method: Dutch Oven


  • 1 White Cake Mix
  • 112 oz can of Sprite or 7-Up
  • 4 c. fresh Blueberries or 221 oz cans Blueberry Pie Filling
  • 1/4 cube Butter


  1. Coals: ~30.  Light em up as you begin prep, or turn on your indoor oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Spray down 12 inch Dutch oven with cooking spray, or wipe a little bit of oil on paper towel over surface.
  3. Pour fruit or pie filling into the bottom of the Dutch Oven.
  4. In a separate bowel, mix soda with cake mix.  The batter will be lumpy.
  5. Then pour over fruit and smooth batter across the surface.
  6. Place dollops of butter around the top of cobbler.
  7. Then bake with 18 coals on top, and 9 on bottom or at 375 degrees until cake is golden color and tests done with a clean toothpick.  It usually takes around 40-45 minutes, but I start checking at about 30 minutes.
  8. Serve warm out of the Dutch oven and top with ice cream or whipped cream if desired.


  • This recipe is easily used with other fruits and cake mix flavors.  Be creative…think spiced cake and peaches, chocolate cake and cherries, or yellow cake and apples.
  • Tip:  If you like to kick things up a notch, consider adding a little spice or seasoning in your fruit.  Apples pair well with cinnamon, berries pair well with citrus like a little lemon zest or juice, and peaches pair well with nutmeg.
