Muffins in a Dutch oven?

Is there a good way (type of pan or insert?) to make muffins in a Dutch oven? (Not just muffin recipes as a cake but actual individual muffins?)

You could buy some disposable foil muffin pans and put them in the dutch oven. Even cut them up so you utilize the space most efficiently.

Oh, that's a good idea. Thanks, Jim. I thought of the pans but didn't think of cutting them up. (Though I might slice myself if I do.)

If you like Dutch oven food...

If you like Dutch Oven food, you will really enjoy each San Lorenzo FiberglassRVRally and each Lake casitas FiberglassRVRally in CA. We had 12 DO pizzas and the next day we had 16 DO meals to share! IT was awesome!

I was there in 2014, Barbara, but now I've moved to Washington State so probably won't be back soon. I haven't done pizza but my friends do Boboli pizzas (individual) in the Dutch oven. Lisa M made an awesome pizza at San Lorenzo last year, though, in that great big Dutch oven.

Anything you can bake/cook in regular oven you can cook in a DO. That said, muffins, corn bread, and etc. are often easier to cook in a "back packer" During my backpacking years breakfast often was biscuits and gravy - finger food. It was a biscuit with a gravy mix added and shredded jerky all mixed up and cooked in a bakepacker. It was cooked while braking camp and repacking backpacks. You either sit on a log to eat your biscuit breakfast or eat it while heading down the trail heading for the next camp.

Interesting, Byron. I don't have any problem baking in the Dutch Oven but at times the load doesn't work as well as muffin cups.

Though I did run into this problem after making a rhubarb crisp last trip. It was apparently too good.

Use a muffin pan or baking dish slightly smaller than the diameter of the Dutch oven and use a trivet or spacers under the dish to allow air to circulate around it. After that it's just a matter of getting the temperature right. The baking dish trick makes cooking almost anything in a Dutch oven pretty easy.

I haven't used it but I bought a soft silicon muffin tray with 6 cups. I had thought of cutting it up and using individual cups to make muffins. I haven't done it yet. Since my wife ran off the muffin tray I probably won't.
I have made bread in silicon round bread pan inside a DO. Works great.
Good luck and happy camping with your DO.

I have one of those inserts that raises things off the bottom of the pan. But I think the easiest thing for cups will be the foil ones. I am going to keep my eye open for a round pan, though.

Hi Michael from VA. I'm wondering where is the best place to buy a Dutch oven, and is black preferable? I like the colors but I'm not sure that they would work too well in a campfire or even heating it on the gas stove for baking. Where can I find the insert? Thanks!

The colors are enamel coating. Look pretty but not good over charcoal or an open fire. The most popular cast iron Dutch Ovens are made by Lodge. They're pre-seasoned and strong. I have several and a Camp Chef.

I think there's a good possibility that enameled cast iron would have the enamel crack when used over an open fire or charcoal. They're made to be used in a oven where the temperature is applied evenly around the outside. Where a campfire or charcoal will heat with a quite a bit of heat in one area until things even out. Another thing I haven't seen any "Camp" Dutch Ovens that were enameled. The difference between a camp dutch oven and oven dutch oven is mostly in the lid. The lid of a camp Dutch oven has a lip around it to hole coal on the top. This is important to make the DO act more like an oven.

Lid and feet. Most camp Dutch Ovens have feet so they can stand over the charcoal. I found the insert at Amazon, I think. camp oven rack

You'll find camp ovens there, too. (Search camp oven instead of Dutch oven- other kinds come up, too, though. The camp ovens have feet and a lid with a rim.

Lots of other things you might want once you get cooking in a Dutch oven- they have tables so you can stand and cook, and you definitely need a charcoal chimney, tongs, and some kind of pot lifter. A lid stand is nice, too, but so far I've gotten by without one.
