Fruit Cobbler

Yields1 Serving
 2 cans of fruit pie filling, or three cans of fruit in syrup (peaches)
 Two layer cake mix
 Eggs and oil and water as needed according to cake mix instructions.
 Aluminum foil
 ** If using fruit in syrup, drain off syrup and use instead of water in the cake mix. Do not pour the syrup into the dutch oven or else cobbler will be runny.

Preheat both Dutch oven and lid over fire. Prepare a small bed of good coals (6 to 8, a few more in winter or if not well lit) on a piece of foil, shiny side up. When Dutch oven is hot, move to bed of coals. Wipe bottom of Dutch oven to remove oil residue.

Pour pie filling or fruit slices into hot Dutch oven - should sizzle. Cover and let fruit heat while you mix cake.
Mix cake according to instructions on box. Substitute syrup if you have it for some/all water. When fruit in oven is bubbling, pour cake mix evenly over the top of the fruit. Scatter chopped nuts, chocolate bits, etc, on top of batter.

Cover Dutch oven and add 2 to 3 times as many coals on top as on the bottom. Spread coals evenly over top with a few extra in the middle. Allow to cook about 15 minutes, then check. Move heat around as needed (edges, center?); slow down bottom heat by removing coals.

When cake is done by usual testing methods and lightly browned, remove all heat. Oven will keep the cobbler warm until ready to eat.
