Dutch Oven Desserts: Baked Pears

What is your favorite dutch oven dessert? So far I have made upside down banana cake, and then I have also done baked pears with dried cherries. Baked pears is definitely a different take on outdoor desserts. It feels super fancy out there in the wild!
What other ideas are out there?

This recipe should work well in your dutch oven, especially with a cooking fire.Dutch Babies

Fill with fresh fruit slices and serve with whipped cream or syrup, or even a fruity sauce.


* 2 eggs
* 1/2 cup milk
* 1/2 cup sifted all-purpose flour
* 1 pinch ground nutmeg
* 1 pinch salt
* 2 tablespoons butter
* 2 tablespoons confectioners' sugar for dusting


1. Place a dutch oven over the fire, and heat the lid and pot until butter melts and begins to sizzle. Swirl the butter until the bottom and sides are coated. Pour excess butter into a mixing bowl.
2. In a the same mixing bowl, beat eggs with a whisk until light. Add milk and stir. Gradually whisk in flour, nutmeg and salt.
3. Remove the dutch oven from the fire and let cool for a minute. Pour all the batter into the dutch oven and return to the fire. Make sure to put 8 to ten hot coals on the lid.
4. Bake until puffed and lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Remove promptly and place on a wire rack to let the steam escape (keeps the pancake from getting soggy). sprinkle with powdered sugar, and top with freshly sliced fruit, and a dollop or two of whipped cream. Cut into wedges and serve.
