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. In fact, I had diet 7Up on hand instead of regular, so I used that, making this a fairly low calorie dessert.

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

    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.
