These 'campfire doughnuts' are simple to make and fun to do with your kids at the campsite.
We've made doughnuts before in our Dutch Oven (deep frying in a Dutch Oven is a good way to season it), but these are a lot simpler and use much less oil. You could even cook them in a frying pan.
Credit for this recipe goes to the Scout's Essential Camping Cookbook. This is one of the fun recipes we've tried from the book.
How to make Campfire Doughnuts
Make up a batter.
At the same time, make some jam sandwiches with three slices of bread each (a triple-decker sandwich).
Cut off the crusts and cut them into squares.
Dip each jam sandwich into the batter.
Fry the batter-soaked sandwich in some oil.
Fry until they go golden brown (some of mine are a little more 'brown' than 'golden').
Remove, drain any oil and sprinkle with sugar.
You should end up with some square-shaped doughnuts/fried jam sandwiches. (This isn't healthy food).
They taste quite like doughnuts (try visualising a doughnut as you eat it, not a fried jam sandwich!).
Give them a go. They're really good fun to make, and you don't need a lot of items either.
