Post Banana Dump Cobbler

Banana Dump Cobbler


1 package yellow cake mix
1 pound brown sugar
½ 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.

I will have to try this the next camping trip we take.
My stepson's mother-in-law belongs to a dutch oven cooking club. I'm going to pass this recipe along to her. It sounds absolutely wonderful.
I know someone who made a peach cobbler similar to this one and it was soooooooo good.

A standard 6-qt would work just fine.

You need a 12-inch (6-quart) oven, or even a 12-inch deep (8-quart) will work. I made this recipe a few years ago, after it was first posted on Yahoo's dutchovencooking group (where a lot of the recipes posted here came from), and it was pretty good.

Shirley, your stepson's MIL must be a member of the Lone Star Dutch Oven Society. I'm also a member -- what a great group of people!
