Lemon Berry Dutch Oven Cobbler

On a recent campout, I made a this dump cake style Lemon Berry Dutch Oven Cobbler. This cobbler recipe is lighter than some of the other ones I make which have a lot of butter.

It got rave reviews from the Scouts and Scouters. The Dutch oven was empty pretty quickly.

You can see a photo of my Lemon Berry Dutch oven cobbler at Empty Nest in the Midwest, which is my personal blog.

    Watch using diet soda. The aspartame breaks down at high heat, into formaldehyde and diketopiperazine, which are both neurotoxins. In small amounts, they are still dangerous, causing headaches, blurred vision and even seizures. Not to scare you, but it’s scientific fact.

    We have a No Burn notice for this weekend’s campout. Could this be made on a camp stove? Would the top get done with no heat on the lid?
