Servings: 1 to 8, depending on how much you like itPrep Time: 5 minutes Cook Time: 30 to 60 minutes
2 cans of pie filling, your choice of flavor
1 cake mix
1 stick of butter
1/2 to 1 cup of brown sugar
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Take some heavy-duty aluminum foil and line the dutch oven (we do that so the acid from the fruit does not react or pit our cast iron or take away the cure on it). Makes clean up easier, too. But if you are using a baking pan, you don’t need to use the foil lining.
Open up the cans of pie filling and dump them in.
Then open the box of cake mix and dump the whole box on top and spread it around. It doesn’t have to be perfect, just dump it in and spread it out.
Use 1/2 cup to a cup of brown sugar, and just spread or sprinkle on top of the cake mix.
Take the stick of butter and cut it into chunks — as many or as few as you want. It’ll melt around. Put the chunks on top as evenly as you can.
Put the lid on and it’s ready to go into the oven. (No lid needed if you’re using a baking dish.)
Stick it in the preheated oven (350 degrees) and let it bake until the butter melts and turns the top golden brown. Or you can put it on the campfire if you are outdoors. The time depends on what pan you use and your altitude. We put a baking sheet under ours to catch any drips when we make this one in the oven.
