Camping Donuts, Applesauce Cake, Fried Granola Treats and Banana Boats.

Camping Donuts
Cheap Refridgerated Biscuits
Oil
Cinnamon

Sugar
Powdered Sugar

Take large cast iron skillet and heat about a 1/2 inch of the oil. Open the biscuits and carefully poke your finger through to make a hole in middle. Lay the biscuits in the oil, flip when golden. Drain off oil on some papertowels. Add sugar and cinnamon or powdered sugar and cinnamon into a big Ziploc freezer bag. Drop donuts in and shake.
 
Applesauce Cake
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 (follow box directions)
eggs as called for 
water as called for

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 to 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.
 
Fried Granola Treat
5 parts oats
3 parts chocolate chips
3 parts butter or margerine
3 parts brown sugar
1 jar of peanut butter

Put the butter into a pot over fire until it starts to melt, then add the oats. Stir them until it becomes a thick, sticky texture. Slowly add everything else while it's still over the fire, and mix all the ingredients well. It tastes best warm but you can store it in a fridge or food pack because it will last.
 
Banana Boats
6 Medium Bananas
6 Sheets 12" x 12" tin foil
6 Tbsp Mini Chocolate Chips.
6 Tbsp Mini Marshmellows

Leave the banana in the peel. Hold lengthwise. Slice through the skin and halfway through the banana end to end. Make same incision about 1/2 an inch away. Peal back the sliced peel, leaving the skin still attched. Carve out trench in middle of banana. Fill with one tablespoon each marshmellows and chocolate chips. Replace peel. Hold "trench-side up" and place on tin foil. Wrap banana lengthwise keeping the fold of the foil over the trench. (this makes it easier to check if it is done) Place on hot coals or near fire. You know it is done when the chocolate chips are starting to melt.
