Ingredients (3)

  • 3 (10-ounce) packages frozen berries (blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, or a mix), or 2 dry pints fresh berries
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 package yellow cake mix


  1. Prepare a grill or campfire for medium heat, using 20 to 24 charcoal briquettes or lump charcoal. Line a cast iron Dutch oven with heavy-duty foil and add the berries and sugar. Stir to mix.
  2. Dump the cake mix into a medium bowl and follow package instructions for mixing the batter. Spread the cake batter over the berry filling.
  3. Cover the Dutch oven with its lid and place on the grill or over the campfire. Cook until the filling is bubbly, the cobbler top is firm and rounded, and a toothpick inserted in the topping comes out clean, about 30-40 minutes. Serve warm.
