Need an easy camping dessert? It doesn’t get easier than this Pound Cake and Berry Campfire Skillet Dessert. Just a few simple ingredients and dessert is served.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1216 oz fresh berries
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 3/4 lb pound cake
  • 2 Rolo candy bars

Instructions

  1. Combine the berries and the sugar in a bowl and let sit until the juices start to release, 10-15 minutes.
  2. Place a grate over hot coals (or you can use a grill). Add the butter to a 12” cast iron skillet and allow to melt. Cut the pound cake into 1” cubes. Add to the hot skillet and cook, turning often, until all sides are toasted. Remove the skillet from the heat.
  3. Sprinkle the berries over the top of the cake cubes, then sprinkle the Rolos over the top. Cover the skillet with foil and allow to sit until the berries are warm and the chocolate is melting, 5-10 minutes.

Recipe Notes:

I used 3/4 of a 1 lb frozen pound cake, and we just snacked on the rest. 🙂
