When you think of dishes you can make with your dutch oven, what usually comes to mind for most people are classic main dishes like soups, stews, chili, or for browning meat before putting it in the oven, but did you know that your dutch oven can also be used to make delicious and tasty desserts in your home, and not just on camping trips?
As a stay at home dad, I do all the cooking for my family, since my wife woks outside of the home. One of my favorite types of cookware is cast iron cookware, and particularly like using our enameled cast iron dutch oven. I am always looking for new uses for this favorite cooking pot, and wanted to see if I could use our dutch oven to make desserts and not just for making chili, stew and other typical dinner meals so popular with a dutch oven.
I was so impressed with the hundreds of dutch oven recipe options I thought I should share it here, and provide time saving links to the best dutch oven dessert recipes I could find, so you don’t have to go searching the internet yourself.
