“Our troop created this recipe while at Camp Pupukea in Hawaii. The director had a mango tree in his yard and brought the fruit to camp. We combined the fresh mango with ingredients found at the dining hall for the cobbler cook-off competition. The recipe was a major hit!”

Servings: 14 to 16
Preparation Time: 1 1/2 hours
Challenge Level: Easy


For Filling:
10 ripe mangos
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon lemon juice
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

For Topping:
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1/2 cup (1 standard stick) butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Required Equipment:
12-inch camp Dutch oven
Large mixing bowl
Medium-size mixing bowl
Heavy-duty aluminum foil

Preparation at Camp:

1. Prepare 25 coals for the Dutch oven.

2. Remove skin from mangos then cut each into half inch-wide slices while removing the large, thin seed.

3. Mix all filling ingredients, including sliced mangos, in a large bowl.

4. Line oven with aluminum foil then grease the foil with a little cooking spray.

5. Pour mango filling into the Dutch oven, spreading it evenly.

6. Mix all topping ingredients, except cinnamon, in a medium-size bowl.

7. Pour topping mixture over mango filling. Spread topping evenly over filling, but do not stir it into the filling! It’s supposed to lay on top.

8. Sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon over the topping.

9. Bake for about 60 minutes using 17 coals on the lid of the Dutch oven and 8 coals underneath. Refresh coals as required.

One thought on “Rainbow Island Mango Cobbler

  1. Looks and sounds delicious, but please don’t line your Dutch ovens with foil. A properly-seasoned D.O. won’t require it and your D.O. won’t get a good seasoning of you always line it.
