"In an effort to avoid S'more burnout on our last trip, I came up with this quick recipe you can make right at camp and just toss on the hot coals of the campfire." — 79SHALE97

heavy duty aluminum foil (10x12-inch)
1 (12 ounce) package
prepared sponge cake shells
1 (20 ounce) can
crushed pineapple, drained, juice reserved
brown sugar, divided
chopped pecans, divided
Side Notes - You can find the sponge cakes in the bakery and/or produce department. They're typically used to make strawberry shortcakes. Also, the can of crushed pineapple did not contain enough juice on our last trip, so I used some of the liquid from the jar that the maraschino cherries came in.
what a refreshing change from the standard s'more! The first time I tried it didn't go so well. After following the instructions they burned. So 10 minutes in the embers is just too much. A few minutes on the grate not directly over a flame works very well!!
really really really good idea. Super simple. The cakes took no time at all to heat up in the coals, ours were very hot, I think I didn't even leave them on 3 minutes, as soon as you hear steam and bubbling, they're done... and the sugar on the foil caramelizes and it's a real treat when you're out in the middle of nowhere. Fantastic idea.
So good and so much fun!
Delicious! Thank you.
These were pretty good, but we didn't care to much for the smokey flavor.
Do not put them in flames!
These were a big hit! I forgot the cherries and pecans when we went camping, so just made them without and they were gobbled up. Thanks for this great recipe!
A total hit with the grandkids and a nice change from somore's
