Traeger Camping Eats: Easy Grilled Peach Cobbler

When we say this recipe is easy, we aren't kidding. If you cut out the fluff, this recipe only has three ingredients.

That's right - 3: 1. peaches, 2. cake mix, and 3. butter

The minimal time, effort and ingredients required make this the perfect sweet treat to enjoy while camping. But don't fear! This cobbler does not scrimp on flavor. With how scrumptious this dessert is and how perfectly it hits the spot, no one will ever guess just how easy it is.

EASY GRILLED PEACH COBBLER

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Serves: 6 to 8
Recommended Pellets: Apple or Cherry

INGREDIENTS:

3 lbs. ripe peaches (or to make this EVEN easier, you could use a large can of peaches, juice and all)
1 box of yellow or white cake mix
3/4 cup of butter, separated (a stick and a half)
1/2 cup brown sugar (optional)
Cinnamon (optional)

Pre-Camping Homework:

Before you head on your trek into the great outdoors, give your peaches a quick grill. (If you opt to use the canned peaches, you can simply grab the can of peaches, cake mix and butter on your way out the door - but grilling the peaches first gives them an amazingly delicious flavor and caramelization.)

Cut the peaches in half or quarters. (If you buy Freestone peaches, this will be exponentially easier to do.)

Start the grill on Smoke with the lid open for 4 to 5 minutes or until the fire is established. Preheat grill to 400 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes.

For added sweetness, dip each peach slice into brown sugar. Place the peach slices on the grill grate, cut-side down and grill for 5 minutes. Turn the peaches over and grill for an additional 2 to 3 minutes or until they're soft and slightly charred.

Allow the peaches to cool on the cutting board. Peel off the skins and slice the peaches so that in the end each whole peach has been cut into 8 or more slices.

Put the peaches and their juices in a plastic resealable bag and keep in the refrigerator until you're ready to go camping.

Fire Up the Cobbler:

When you're out in the wilderness and ready to satisfy that sweet tooth, start your Traeger on Smoke until the fire is established (4 to 5 minutes). (Don't forget to get a Power Inverter to give your Traeger juice while you're out communing with nature.) Put a cast iron pan on the grill grate and allow it to preheat as the Traeger preheats to 350 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes.

Cut up 4 tablespoons of butter and put into the bottom of the pan. Pour in the peaches and their juices. (If you didn't get a lot of juice from the peaches, you can add in 1/4 to a 1/2 cup of 7-Up or Sprite.)

Spread the cake mix evenly over the top of the peaches. Sprinkle with cinnamon (if desired).

Melt the remaining 1/2 cup of butter and pour evenly as you can over the top of the cake mix.

Grill the cake for 40 minutes or until the top is golden brown. Serve it hot with a scoop of ice cream and enjoy it while you're gathered around the fire.
