Applesauce cake
camping recipe
Category: Desserts   Rating: 6.3
Backpacking: No Effort: easy Serves: 7-8 Prep time: 1-30m
  • 2 rectangular foil pans
  • 1 sheet heavy duty aluminum foil (large enough to cover top of foil pan).
  • 1 large jar applesauce
  • 1 spice box cake
  • eggs
  • oil } follow box directions
  • water /
How to Prepare:
Mix up spice cake according to the recipe on the box. Pour the applesauce into the foil pan. (I use two stacked together for strength). Applesauce should be at least 1-1/2" deep. Pour cake over applesauce and gently spread it out. Cover pan with foil and place in hot coals (no flames). Bake for 20-25 minutes depending on how hot your fire is. Cake should be firm in the center but will be moist on the top, not like in your oven at home. This is a great recipe for any easy, filling dessert even if you don't have a dutch oven along. Clean up is a snap. Just throw everything away.

When camping with smaller children, put a bar of soap in one leg of a pair of pantyhose and tie a towel to the other leg. Secure pantyhose to a tree at your campsite (we knot the legs around the tree). Hang a hot-water shower next to the soap, and you have a handy washing station that will eliminate the need to walk to the restrooms to clean messy hands and faces. Note: Hanging soap is not bear-friendly.
