Ziplock Bag Icecream

½ cup milk
1 Tbsp sugar
¼ tsp vanilla (you can try other flavours)

Add all ingredients to a pint-size Ziplock freezer bag and zip shut.

Place that bag in a larger (quart-size or bigger) Ziplock bag. Add ice to fill the bag halfway, plus 6 tablespoons of salt (rock or regular). Zip that one shut.

Shake, turn, toss and mix the bag. In about 5 or 10 minutes, you will have cold hands and yummy ice cream!

Note: Don't try to double this, as it doesn't seem to work. (Also, be sure you get all of the salt off of the small bag before you open it.)

Brandied Apples

Serves 4
4 x Granny Smith Apples - cored (do not peel)
1 cup dried mix fruit
1 to 2 tblspns brown sugar
1/2 cup Rum

Soak the dried fruit in the rum overnight.
Place (push, prod) the soaked fruit into the core of the apples.
Line your camp oven with some greased foil (to help keep it clean) and put in the apples. Pour any remaining fruit and liquid over the top of the apples.
Put on the lid and bake over the coals (with coals on top) for approx 30 to 40 mins, or until the apples are tender.
(At home, bake in a mod oven 180ºC for approx same time.)
Serve with custard.


Mars Bar Apples

Simple, delicious desert that the kids will love.
Serves 4
4 apples
1 Mars Bar or similar
Marsala (fortified desert wine) – optional for the kids!

Core the apples.
Cut the Mars Bar in half and then in half again lengthwise, so that you have 4 long fingers.
Push a finger of Mars Bar into each apple.
Line a baking dish with foil or baking paper and grease.
Place the apples in the baking dish and pour a little Marsala over the top of each apple. Bake for approx 15 to 20 mins, or until the apples are soft.
To serve, place an apple in a bowl, and spoon over any sauce from the bottom of the baking dish.
Can be served with cream and/or custard as well.

Tira Misu - camping style

Serves 6
2 tblspns instant coffee
1 1/4 cups boiling water
1 cup Sweet Marsala
1 x 250gm pkt Sponge Finger biscuits
1 x 85gm pkt Instant Vanilla Pudding mix
1 x 85gm pkt Instant Chocolate Pudding mix
(or use 2 pkts of the same flavour - but the chocolate and vanilla are a nice mix)
Optional (but nice): some cream and grated chocolate for serving.

Mix up the puddings as directed on the back of the packet. (It is usually around 600 ml of cold milk and mix until it thickens, about 3 minutes.) Set aside while you prepare the sponge fingers. The pudding should thicken slightly during this time.
Mix the coffee, water and marsala in a bowl.
Dip each sponge finger in this mix briefly, allowing it to soak up the liquid a little. Don't overdo it, or the fingers will become too soggy and fall apart.
Arrange half of the coffee soaked biscuits in the base of a bowl or plastic container and cover with the chocolate pudding mix.
Place the other half of the biscuits on top and then spoon over the vanilla pudding mix evenly over the biscuits.
Sprinkle with grated chocolate and top with cream (optional).
Place in the fridge and allow it to set for at least 30 minutes.

Note: While not as rich as the original recipe for Tira Misu, which uses mascarpone cheese and whipped cream, it's a lot easier to make when camping and tastes pretty good too.

I used caramel chocolate and added crushed nuts. Worked well and added something different to it.

Did this once on a Scout camp 25 years ago!

You can also try Vegimite spread on bread and topped with strawberry jam. Kinda sweet and salty

Found this in a Jack Absalom book.
Heaps better than damper!! :)

2 cups S.R, flour
pinch salt
2 teas butter
1 cup milk

Cooking time: 7-10 minutes.

Sift the flour and salt, rub butter into flour. Add sufficient
milk to make a soft dough, put on floured board and knead
very lightly. Roll dough out, about 3/+ inch thick. Cut into
shapes. Garnish them with milk and place in hot camp oven
for 7-10 minutes.


We found the cooking time to be about 12 minutes, guess it depends on how hot your camp oven is.

Twinkies and hot cocoa are the absolute best camping dessert, hands down. Alright, maybe mores are close second. If you get some dry ice, you can have pretty much anything you want, even ice cream.

Apple crumble

About 2 cups of regualar flour and 1/4 of that with butter rub it together with your fingers when it start to look like bread crumbs add about the same amount of brown sugar and rum between fingers once it looks like bread crums put 2 tins of crushed apples in the camp oven sprinkle cinimin on top and spread the mixture made before on ton and add a bit more cinimin and cook for about 20mins.
It tastes great feeds a few ppl and can feed more if u add custard to it and also you can add a bit of lemon juice to change the taste a bit
