Dutch Oven Cherry Cobbler

What’s a more iconic dish to cook in a Dutch oven than a cobbler? I’ve cooked many a cobbler and let’s just say when Shannon came up with this recipe I wasn’t excited about another cobbler. But the cherry and almond together make a great combination. It’s also a really easy dump cobbler that is great for beginners or to please a crowd. 

The batter recipe can be used for any cobbler and fruit combination. So get creative and get in the kitchen!

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract (optional- great with cherry)
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon (optional - great with peaches)
  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 2 cups fruit or more to taste, we like to add about 1/3 - 1/2 cup of juice to for more taste


  • Mix together the flour, sugar, salt baking powder, milk and vanilla together.
  • Pour the butter in a greased 12-inch deep Dutch oven or a 11x13-inch casserole dish.
  • Pour the batter in the Dutch oven. Evenly top with the fruit and juice.
  • If baking in the house- bake at 350 degrees for about 40 minutes or until it’s about ¾ baked through like a cake, but still has a soft center.


If you like more of a gooey cobbler add more juice and don't cook the cobbler as long.
