If you are looking for a tasty, early autumn, foraged campfire treat, then this blueberry cake is your answer. I have to admit though, this time round we used bought blueberries as I knew it was going to be a very wet hike!! The recipe is very vague, deliberately, as outdoor cooking is best kept that way as it makes it a lot more simple!
Eggs (I work on 1 per person)
Slices of bread (I work on 1 per egg) and broken into small chunks
Blueberries (for 3 people, 2 handfuls were perfect)
Tablespoon of creme fraiche (1 tablespoon per 3 eggs)
1 tablespoon milk (per 3 eggs)
A liberal sprinkling of cinnamon and sugar
Mix all of the ingredients together in a pan, then place it onto the fire to cook. Stir it every so often to prevent it burning and sticking to the pan. It will take around 5-10 minutes, and will be ready when the egg makes the rest of the ingredients start to set. This is such a lovely warm, fruity treat, and my trio wolfed it down, although they had hiked first and it was pouring with rain 😉
