Campfire Shortcake on a Stick
Biscuit dough on a stick, roasted over the coals, creates a rugged strawberry shortcake that perfect for eating around the fire.
For the shortcake dough:
- 2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
- 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
- ¼ cup heavy cream
- 2 cups sliced strawberries, sweetened to taste
- Whipped cream
1Build a campfire and let the flames die down. There should be a coating of white ash on the coals.
2In a medium bowl, combine the baking mix, melted butter, and heavy cream. Stir until just mixed (don’t overwork the dough).
3With clean hands, roll the dough into walnut-size balls. Flatten a dough ball and insert it on the end of a stick. Form a corncob-shaped cake about ¼ inch thick. Hold the stick over the fire pit or charcoal grill until the cake is golden brown and cooked through, turning so it cooks evenly, about 10-15 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
4To serve, crumble the shortcake into serving bowls and top with strawberries and whipped cream.
