The Recipes

Finally. Two of my favorite camp food recipes. Enjoy!

Pineapple Upside Down Cake


Yellow cake mix
1 can pineapple slices
1/2 cup brown sugar
12 maraschino cherries
2 Tbsp butter


Put 1/2 inch of water in the bottom of the dutch oven. Form an aluminum foil 'pan' that is 1/2 inch above the bottom of the dutch oven and wraps over the top edges of the D.O. This will hold the cake. Use a few layers of foil. Mix cake , following package instructions. Drop small bits of butter into your 'pan'. Sprinkle brown sugar over butter. Lay pineapple slices in, covering the bottom. Place a cherry in the hole of each pineapple slice. Pour cake batter over pineapple. Place on coals and add coals to lid to approximate 350 degrees. Cook until a toothpick inserted into cake comes out clean.

We didn't use coals...just put it in the fire!

Dutch Baby Pancake

1/4 c. butter
4 eggs
1 c. flour
1 c. milk

Put butter in Dutch oven in really hot coals to melt. Meanwhile, beat eggs, then beat in flour and milk. Pour mixture into melted butter. Cook 20-25 minutes or until batter has risen up sides of pan and is golden brown. Cut in wedges and serve with confectioners sugar or preserves. Check after about 10 minutes....it could already be done! It was excellent with butter and brown sugar and very easy to make.

    These sound really good. I don't know when I'll have a chance to try them, but will save them!
