Praline Peach Cobbler

     What makes this Praline Peach Cobbler from Betty Crocker so good is the bottom layer of pecans, brown sugar, and graham cracker crumbs.  Not only does it make enough to feed an army, but the peaches are nestled between a gooey praline crust and a sweet cake-like topping.  In my 12 inch dutch oven it baked for 55 minutes with 12 coals in a ring around the bottom and 28 on the lid.  I did line it with parchment paper for an easier clean up but it's not really necessary.  Make this for your next dutch oven gathering and there's bound to be a line of people coming back for a second helping of this delicious dessert.

  1. WOW, that sounds soo good . . .

    I will give it a try, but how can I substitute the Bisquick Mix. Can´t get it here.
    Would a standart cake mix work as well?

    1. If you Google 'homemade Bisquick mix' you will find recipes telling you how to make it from scratch, it's pretty simple, you just need to incorporate your shortening or butter until it makes a fine powder. A standard cake mix is something different, I would stick with the original baking or Bisquick mix. Let us know how it turns out, good luck, Liddy

  2. I would like to make this in my 10 inch Dutch oven. Any suggestions on adjusting the recipe?

    1. Hi Amy, the original recipe recommends a 9 by 13 inch pan. In a 10 inch dutch oven, I would suggest using one 29 oz. can of peaches and cutting everything else by one half or one third. Good luck, let us know how it turns out, Liddy

  3. I have to say one of the best peach cobbler ever!! :) I actually baked it in the oven due to a very rainy day camping and I had only one can of peaches turned out scrumptious !!

  4. Very happy to hear you liked the recipe Dawn, think I will making this again soon. Happy cooking! Liddy
