Easter Camping Cook Book

We all love getting out camping at Easter! But just because you’re camping doesn’t mean you can’t indulge your taste buds. So, I thought I’d put together some of my favourite Easter – not so healthy – but oh so yummy treats!

Easy Mix Pancakes

My kids have always equated camping with pancakes. We very rarely cook pancakes at home. They’re a camping food, probably because when we’re camping, we have more time for a leisurely breakfast together as a family.

I used to take the shake to mix pancakes in the bottle, but the way my kids can hoe through a batch of these, I found myself taking upwards of 4 of these for a weekend! Not only was it costing me a fortune, but took up lots of my precious pantry space!

I decided that there had to be a way to have my cake (or pancake) and eat it to. So, I set about perfecting my Easy Mix Pancake mix.

Ingredients

1 Cup Self Raising Flour

¼ Cup Custard Powder

1 Tbs Sugar

1 Cup Milk Powder

Mix together and store until needed

(I find that this mix is best consumed within 1 month)

 

To make up the batter

Add approximately 2 cups of water to make a good batter consistency (I start by adding around 1 ½ cups so that I don’t add too much liquid) – the batter should pour easily but not be too runny. If it's too thick add extra water a tablespoon or two at a time.

* If you want your pancakes thinner, just make your batter a little bit runnier.

 

Cooking the pancakes

Heat a frypan either over the hob on medium or if you’re game over the fire.

Oil the frypan with spray oil, or if you’re looking for a more decadent experience use a little knob of butter and smear it around.

Pour batter into the pan to make the desired size of pancake

When bubbles start to begin to form and the bubbles near the edge start to pop, flip the pancake over.

Cook until browned and serve with your favourite topping.           

- Maple Syrup and butter

- Nutella

- Jam and cream


Or try mixing in a few chocolate chips or slices of banana or even both together!

The fluffy, buttery goodness of Brioche marries so well with the raspberries and banana to make this the most decadent of French toasts! Not only is this recipe scrumptious, but it’s a good way to feed a whole lot of hungry people at once!

 

Ingredients

1 loaf Brioche, sliced

8 eggs

¼ cup milk

1 tsp vanilla

1 tsp mixed spice

1 punnet fresh raspberries or approx. 100g frozen

1 Banana, sliced

 

Method

Cut a piece of foil and a piece of baking paper approximately 20cm larger both length and breadth than your loaf (larger if possible).

Place the baking paper on top of the foil.

Place your bread in the middle of the baking paper and foil

Fold the sides of the foil and paper up to make a box, folding the end like an envelope. Make sure you allow room for the fruit between the slices of bread

Tuck a few raspberries and slices of banana between each slice

Mix milk, eggs, vanilla and mixed spice together in a bowl

Pour egg mix over bread evenly and place your bread in a camp oven with a trivet. (If I’m cooking this over the stove, I use a roasting pan with a lid with a trivet in it)

Place the camp oven on either the stove or on the coals of a campfire. (If using the campfire also shovel some coals on the lid of the camp oven)

Cook for approx. 40mins

Remove from heat and allow to stand 5 mins

Serve with your favourite syrup – mine’s Maple
