    Dutch oven apple pie ( the easy way )

    Required: aluminum foil or aluminum pie tin
    Ingredients: 1 can apple pie filling
    1 box Jiffy muffin mix
    1/4 stick butter
    1 spray can of whipped cream
    Instructions: Pour the filling into the pie tin.
    Sprinkle the dry muffin mix over the entire surface.
    Slice the butter into thin squares and distribute across surface.
    cover the bottom with equal sized pebbles in the dutch oven.
    Carefully, place the pie tin on top of the pebbles. (keeping the tin off the bottom reduces burning.)
    Put on the lid and cover with coals.
    Cook for 10 to 15 minutes, depending on fire temperature.
    Dish a spoonful out and apply whipped cream.

    Down here in the southern U.S. they used to make "camp bread". If you goggle camp bread you will get about a hundred different recipes. The one I was brought up on was very simular to your beer damper, except that we used no butter, or beer! Moma used milk, but just plain water will work! Cooked in the fire place with a dutch oven, lid on, and coals on the top! Bread can be really simple!

    Jack, I am thinking I would like to bake this bread on Sunday. Can I prep the dough at home and then cook it at the get together about two hours after the dough is prepared?

    sure throw it in the fridge for as long as possible to delay gas for as long as possible

    will be more malty ...;)

    folks make this last thing at night and put out under a damp cloth in the night cold and cook for breakfast the next morning ( let last rise on top of the oven ;) ) it makes a heavy scone type roll thats great with golden syrup or jam treacle for the USA , golden syrup i think is pretty unique to Oz ..

    pretty good with gravy or SOS too ;)

    Not to hijack, but if anyone has a cast dutch oven or two they'd like to sell...

    I think I'll do some scones on Saturday. We are doing the bread now and will post a pic as soon as it is done.

    If you get a chance to go to a antique store, look for one there. I always see them in different sizes at those places and also flea markets.

    Oh yeah, once you've used cast iron those tinny non-sticks just aren't the same....best cook I've ever seen was my late Grandma she almost always used cast iron for almost everything!
