Everyone loves smores when camping, but how about trying something new the next time you are cooking on a campfire? Here are some ideas that are easy to prepare and super delicious:
Caramel banana boats
- Cadbury Caramello chocolate or similar, or mars bars
- Vanilla custard
Take your banana, with skin, and simply make a cut along the top. Stick in a few pieces of caramel chocolate, a mini mars bar or half a standard mars bar, and place on your BBQ plate on a low to medium heat. Wait until the chocolate is melted and banana warm. Serve with vanilla custard or sauce. You can get creative with this recipe and try different fillings, such as marshmallows, fruit or nuts. Great way to use bananas bruised in transit.
Easy Apple Crumble
- Scotch fingers
- Cream or custard
Another great way to use leftover fruit or fruit bruised on bumpy roads. Core and cut your apples into small pieces and loosely wrap in foil with some cinnamon. Place on BBQ plate on low to medium heat. After around 20 minutes your apples should be stewed. Serve in bowls and top with crumbled up Scotch fingers, cream and/ or custard. Easy and delicious!
- Can of sliced peaches
- 150gr flour
- 100gr butter
- 85gr sugar
- Custard or vanilla sauce
(approx. 4 serves)
Of course you can also use your camp oven to make desserts. For a simple peach crumble, line your camp oven with foil (optional), then drain peach slices and place in oven. Mix flour and butter in a bowl, add in sugar and some cinnamon (you can also use any crumble recipe, for example with rolled oats, if you prefer). Top peach slices with crumble mix, put on lid and bake for around 35-45 minutes. Serve with custard or vanilla sauce.
- Ice cream cones
- Fillings of your choice (think mini marshmallows, smarties, chocolate, berries…)
Fill your ice cream cones with your chosen fillings and wrap in foil. Place on BBQ plate or coals until warm. Yum!
- Cake base
- Toppings of your choice (fruit, chocolate, marshmallows)
Time to be creative again: Place cake base in your camp oven and decorate with your favourite toppings. This works great with fresh fruit, chocolate sprinkles and a layer of marshmallows on top. Place on fire until cooked.
Grown up Marshmallows
Yes, that’s right- marshmallows for grownups with a sweet tooth. Roast your marshmallows on a stick and dip them into Bailey’s liquor. Delicious!
We are not saying that any of these recipes deserve five health stars but hey- YOLO! And after an active day, you deserve a treat! Enjoy!
