We have been making this one in our troop for several years. I would suggest a couple of things. First, use more butter. Next, sprinkle some cinnamon on it. Finally, a little almond extract really makes it "pop"! Cheers.

This sounds so yummy....I'm trying this for sure :thumbsup:
Question..? So do I just swirl the spice cake mix into the apple pie filling slightly..? Then pour on top, the rootbeer..? :thinking:

I made it and was it sweet. Way to sweet for me the taste is great. Yes pour the cake mix on top of apples and then pour rootbeer over that and cover with lid and coals. Next time I'm using sugar free soda.

Spice cake is my all time favorite cake. I don't have a DO yet (hope to get one soon) but when I do get one, this will be one of the first things I make.
I wonder how it would work with cherry pie filling?

Cherry pie filling is awesome in these cobblers, especially when done with chocolate cake mix and cherry coke.

I finally got a DO. Hopefully I'll get a chance to play with it next weekend. :twisted:

It was really good. This is the first time cooking anything in my dutch oven.

All the ingredients I used

Ready for the heat


The finished cobbler

The leftovers

What was left was basically just from 3 of us eating it.

I like the simplicity of the top recipe and don't like the price of Ms. Smith's pies....

I don't do DO, so am wondering if anyone has made this in a normal home oven, and what size pan do I need?

hopefully, I can figure out how to use the oven.... no kidding..... :)

A 12 " dutch oven in the oven :lol:

We have given over to baking almost everything in cast iron in the kichen oven. The results are so much more forgiving.

Man, those meals were lip smacking good. One day in particular they made us what they called Rootbeer Cobbler. I just had to get the recipe.

Anyway, it's so easy a caveman could do it. Hope I didn't offend any cavemen.

1 box spice cakemix
2 cans apple pie filling (16oz)
1 can Rootbeer (12oz)
2 tablespoons butter

In a 12-quart Dutch oven, spread butter on bottom. Pour applepie filling into the Dutch oven, and sprinkle the cake mix evenly over the top. With end of fork or spoon, make a swirl in cake mix and then pour in a can of Rootbeer. Cover with lid. Put 8-10 charcoal briquettes on bottom, 16-18 on top. Cook for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or to a golden brown.

This will make you slap your pappy. The first time that I made it at home, I almost ate the whole thing.

Also, a good site for recipes is here.

I know this is a old post but I want to try this . A 12 quart dutch oven? Really? So if I want to use a 12 inch-6 quart DO Just half the ingrediants?

I modified your Root Beer Cobbler today, to make a Gluten Free version of it, and took it to a Celiac Society potluck. It was a hit. :thumbsup:

For those who can't have wheat or barley, etc, here is a gluten free version:

Root Beer Cobbler (GF)

2 Tablespoons Earth Balance margarine (lactose free)
2 Cans Gluten Free apple pie filling (about 14-16 oz each)

1 Package Pamela’s GF yellow cake mix or other GF yellow cake mix (2 Betty Crocker GF yellow cake mixes = 1 Pamela's)
1 Teaspoon cinnamon
1 Teaspoon allspice

12 Ounces Root Beer
1 Tablespoon molasses

(Note: The cinnamon, allspice, and molasses adds what is needed to turn a yellow cake mix into a spice cake mix.)

Using a large oven-proof casserole dish (home baking) or a 12-quart cast iron Dutch oven (camping), spread margarine on the bottom. Pour apple pie filling into the casserole or Dutch oven.

Thoroughly mix spices into the cake mix and sprinkle the mix evenly over the apples.

Thoroughly mix the molasses and Root Beer together. With the end of a fork or spoon, make a swirl in the cake mix and then pour the molasses-Root Beer mix over to cover all the mix.

If using an oven-proof casserole dish, bake at 350 for about 1 hour, or until golden brown on top.

If using a cast iron Dutch oven, cover with lid. Put 8-10 white-hot charcoal briquettes on bottom, 16-18 on top. Cook for 50 minutes to 1 hour, or to a golden brown.
