Breakfast while camping doesn’t have to be complicated – this Campfire Cinnamon Blueberry Bread Recipe is proof of that! Reminiscent of a baked French toast, your mornings in the woods will be delicious!
- 1 loaf (1 lb) sliced cinnamon bread
- 6 large eggs
- 1/2 cup milk
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 2 cups fresh blueberries, divided
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 1–2 tablespoons heavy cream
- powdered sugar or maple syrup, for serving
- Prepare a campfire and let it burn down to coals.
- Lay 2 large sheets of heavy duty foil on top of each other. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Place the loaf of cinnamon bread in the center of the foil, and fold the edges up around the bread, forming a sort of bowl. Spread the pieces of bread apart.
- In a bowl, lightly beat the eggs. Beat in the milk, cream, maple syrup and vanilla. Pour the mixture over the top of the bread, making sure the mixture goes in-between each of the pieces. Sprinkle one cup of the blueberries over the bread and press most of them between the slices. Use another sheet of foil to cover the top of the bread, and crimp the edges to seal.
- Place the bread on a grate over the hot coals. Grill until the egg is cooked through, about 30 minutes, rotating the bread to avoid hot spots.
- Remove from the heat and allow to stand (still in the foil) for 10 minutes.
- Combine the powdered sugar with the 1 tablespoon of the cream in a ziplock bag. Add more cream as needed to make a glaze. Cut the corner off the corner of the bag and drizzle the glaze over the top of the bread.
- Serve sprinkled with the remaining blueberries and powdered sugar or maple syrup.
Make sure you bring a knife along, as the bottoms of the pieces will stick together because of the egg mixture.
