7. Balinese Pancakes

7.Bali Pancakes

Balinese Pancakes. We first ate these delicious pancakes in you guessed it, Bali while backpacking with kids. These are scrumptious, delicious and hearty. Want to try it? All you need is any type of thin pancake mixture of your choosing. We prefer wholemeal flour for better health. Cook on one side and add coconut and bananas on the soft, uncooked side. Flip that yummy pancake, until the bananas caramelise’ and the coconut crisps. The flavour already added into the batter means you don’t have to give kids sticky syrups if you dont want which also makes the perfect in the car and on the go snack.

8. Sweet CampFire Bread and Butter Pudding

8. bread butter pudding

Bread and Butter Pudding can be done in an oven, but if you want this hot dessert food, here’s one of our best camping food hacks. Slather some smooth butter on both sides of the toasts and arrange one on top of the other in a row on a bake dish or campfire cast iron cooking pot. Pour a well-wipped mixture of vanilla, eggs, cinnamon, milk, sugar and cream. Cover the entire thing in tin foil and cook for 30 mins.

9. Tasty Camping Jaffles

Jaffles can be scrumptious breakfast or afternoon snacks. They’re flexible like that. All you need is a jaffle iron and your favourite sandwich buttered outside. If you want camping food on a budget and don’t have that jaffle iron, all you need is our trusty tin foil and cook it on a pan. Our favourite is beans and cheese – too easy!

10. CampFire Ham & Egg Rolls

10. Ham & Egg Rolls

This is a modified version of the Bacon and Egg Cups, which we admit is one of the best tent camping meals. Instead of a muffin pan, make some bread bowls from bread rolls. Add some ham and cheese and plop some eggs in. Wrap in foil and cook on a deep, closed pan. The clean up on this one is next to nothing.
