Dutch oven delight (on the grill)




12-inch Dutch oven

2 (30-ounce) cans sliced peaches, drained

2 (8-ounce) cans mandarin oranges, drained

1-1/2 teaspoons cinnamon

3/4 cup brown sugar

1 yellow cake mix, dry

1 (12-ounce) bottle orange-cream soda

4 tablespoons butter, cut into pieces

Vanilla ice cream



Line a 12-inch Dutch oven with heavy-duty foil. Press some of the excess juice out of the canned fruit. To the Dutch oven add peaches, oranges and cinnamon. Stir to mix. Sprinkle brown sugar over fruit. Dump cake mix in a large pile over center of fruit. Make a well in the center of the cake mix. Pour orange soda into the well then stir cake mix to moisten. Spread mixture evenly over fruit. Dot top with butter.


Place lid on Dutch oven and bake using 8-10 briquettes bottom and 14-16 briquettes top for 45 to 60 minutes. Or in an oven preheated to 350 degrees.  Serve warm with vanilla ice cream.
