I tried this recipe for the first time and found it to be very good. Because I was using my 12" DO for the main dish, I used a 10" DO for the cobbler. This recipe is definitely for a 12".
As the cobbler baked, the top kept touching the underside of the DO lid, so it did not have a nice finished look to it. But it tasted great! How could it not with a pound of butter and a pound of brown sugar in it?
It was a fun recipe, and a delicious dessert. Now I have an excuse to get a 12" deep DO!
1 package yellow cake mix
1 pound brown sugar
˝ pound margarine
5 pounds bananas
3 tablespoons white sugar
1 tablespoon cinnamon
Heat Dutch oven and cover with coals for 15 minutes. Slice bananas lengthwise and set aside. Prepare cake mix, and set aside. Remove preheated oven from coals
and melt butter in the bottom. Add brown sugar and mix well with butter. Add bananas and sauté for three minutes over fire. Pour cake mixture over bananas.
Fold banana-sugar mixture up over cake mixture a few times. Sprinkle with cinnamon and white sugar. Bake 35 minutes. For the first 10 minutes use coals on the bottom only. Then add coals to oven top and continue baking until done.
