Since the dutch oven can sometimes be difficult to clean, we recently tried out dutch oven liners. They are amazing! The parchment paper liners are my favorite. They make clean up easy and let’s face it, when you’re trying to relax in the woods, the last thing you want is more dishes to wash!

Blackberry Campfire Cobbler Ingredients

This Blackberry Campfire Cobbler only takes 3 simple ingredients and will be perfect for a campfire dessert or potluck supper in the neighborhood. You will need two cans of your favorite pie filling. I used blackberry and lemon. 12 oz Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale (or any clear soda) and one white cake mix.

Make a campfire and get nice hot coals. Place your Dutch oven on a rack and heat for 5 or 10 mins until hot. Add both cans of pie filling and stir. Using a long handle spoon is the best method for safety. The dutch oven holds heat for a long time. Preventing yourself from burns is essential.  Pour 12 oz Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale into a bowl. Add cake mix and stir until blended. Cake mixture will get foamy and it’s okay if there are some lumps.   Pour cake mixture over pie filling.   Cover Dutch oven and place hot coals on lid so it can “bake.” Sit back relax and enjoy yourself for approximately 20 minutes. Carefully take a peek under the lid and your cobbler should be golden brown. Again, make sure you are lifting the lid safely. We use this lid lifter for all of our cast iron cooking.

Scoop out and enjoy warm! If you are lucky the campground will have ice cream in the camp store and you can add a scoop or two to this delicious Blackberry Campfire Cobbler. If not, it’s okay, it’s just as amazing without the ice cream. You can also eat this cobbler cold. It makes a delicious breakfast, too!

This was our first campfire cobbler. I couldn’t believe how easy it was and how prominent the taste of ginger was in each bite, thanks to the Canada Dry® Blackberry Ginger Ale being made with real ginger.

  1. I used to camp a lot more often, but Florida just isn’t my favorite place to camp – it’s too hot, humid, and buggy here. And snakes – lots of snakes. But next time I go home to Alaska, this is DEFINITELY on my list of things to do, because YUM! (client)

  2. My friend and I are going camping in a few days and this is amazing!! Taking the recipe along with me! Thanks for linking up with Delicious Dishes Recipe Party!

  6. Have you tried this with fresh blackberries? How would you modify it? I live in Oregon and blackberries are just coming into season. I’m very new to using my Dutch oven. I’m excited to try your recipes. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. When you use the parchment paper do you grease the dutch oven or apply nonstick spray before putting the parchment paper in? Thanks and will be trying your cobbler this summer.

    1. It’s for the whole recipe, but I am not sure where you got the idea it was supposed to be a waistline friendly dessert. It’s an occasional treat made while camping. Thanks

  8. i would like to do this at home in my oven. can you please send me a recipe?

    1. I’d try baking in a 9 x 13 baking dish in a 350 degree oven for approx. 50 minute or until lightly browned and bubbly. Let rest 10 minutes before serving.

  9. How would you recommend baking this not on a camp fire? I would love to try it, but not sure when I would get go do it over a fire.

  10. Looks good and I will try it. In Australia we have canned fruit but not pie filling. Is there a difference? Would you drain the fruit first?

  11. I tried this recipe last camping trick and everyone loved it! I was thinking of kicking it up a notch and sprinkling some brown sugar and cinnamon to the top of the peaches before adding the batter and slicing some butter for the top of the batter. Any thoughts on that?

  12. Hi what if I want to make this in the oven or on my stove top? I would love to do it on the fire but I just went to three different second hand stores looking for a cast iron Dutch oven and couldn’t find one. Hoping to get an answer today cuz I want to make it for supper tonight thank you

  13. I just saw instructions to make in the oven so thanks. Also crazily we don’t have Blackberry ginger ale here in Canada which is odd because it’s by Canada Dry. I picked up a bottle of cranberry ginger ale and hope that will give similar results.

  14. Hello!
    I was contemplating using your recipe with cherry filling! What soda would you recommend?!

      1. Thank you for getting back to me quickly! I wanted something with flavor and I couldn’t find anything other than regular ginger-ale or sprite! I’m excited to try this! We are going to make during our scout camping drip with the kids.

    1. Hi Doug hope this helps.
      Preheat oven to 350F.
      Spread pie filling in a greased 9×13 baking pan.
      Sprinkle cake mix evenly over the top of pie filling.
      Pour soda evenly over top of cake mix to cover all dry mix.
      Bake for 45 minutes or until top is brown, .Allow to cool slightly before serving
