I read this tip on a camping site and I tell you, it was the best. I emptied a dozen eggs into a mason jar for easy travel. They fit perfect in the cooler without the worry of breaking them. You just pour them out as you need them. It was a great tip so I figured I’d pass it along.
Yep. You heard right, Cheesecake by the campfire! This was a fantastic dessert served in our dutch oven. Although, this recipe came from our extreme camp cooking friends, I did find the recipe here for Dutch Oven Cheesecake. The crust was made by crushing the graham crackers and adding sugar and butter. It is added to the pot and placed on top of the first set of coals.
Then the filling was started. It was all whipped together until fluffy.
Once the crust had baked a bit, the filling was added.
The top of the dutch oven was added with coals on top and cooked for about an hour (or maybe a little more). It was set aside to cool for a bit, then the cherry topping was added.
Really? Look at that!!! Does camping really get better than this?
It was served warm, which I was curious if I would like or not. Oh my gosh…it was FANTASTIC!
Ahhhh, campfire cheesecake, I’m in love!
