The next time you’re in the mood for something sweet around the campfire, try one of these delicious treats from Red Rocklin, California camper Donna Mitchell. It’s a delicious take on pineapple upside down cake.
6 plain cake donuts, sliced in half sideways, like a bagel
6 slices of pineapple, in their own juice
6 aluminum foil pieces
Place one half donut on a piece of foil . Top with pineapple slice . Press 2-3 Tbsp. Brown sugar on top of the pineapple . Place other half of donut on top . Wrap securely in foil.
Place on grate over hot coals, or on preheated grill . Cook about 10 minutes, turn over, and cook another 10 minutes. Brown sugar should be melted – if not, rewrap and cook a few minutes more.
Unwrap and eat – warning they might be hot.
“I have used powdered [donuts] if plain aren’t available,” Donna said. She also suggested using Splenda brown sugar to reduce the total amount of calories.
