Dessert Recipes for the Outdoors

Dessert could be one of the best things about camping and the outdoors. The finishing of a great meal with a sweet treat and reflecting on the adventures of the day.

This sweet meal ending can be as simple as a cake or cookie but there are so many great recipes that there are definitely rewards for spending the time cooking. Popular outdoor desserts include dump cakes, crisp/cobblers/crumbles, baked apples/bananas in the coals, and flambeed fruit. However, some more time-consuming options are also available like scratch-baked pies, ice cream, and bread puddings.

Chocolate, apples, pineapple, and bananas seem to be reoccurring themes in many of these outdoors desserts but don't forget other flavors like berries, vanilla, peaches, pears, and cherries to mix things up a bit.
