“Who says you can't have a fresh baked dessert at your campsite? It may be difficult to serve with ice cream at camp, but a bit of light cream is delicious. If you are making this at home on your grill (saving the heat from your stove during a hot summer) then by all means, do use the ice cream. This is a fun and delicious dessert to make next to your grilled meat, packet potatoes and grilled veggie side. Dinner is complete without even turning the stove on.”
