Place a slice of bread directly on white glowing coals. After about a minute, turn the bread to brown the other side. Remove from heat and blow the ashes away. Butter and enjoy!


Ash cakes

Make stiff biscuit dough, then form small flat cakes and place them on a bed of white hot ashes. When they are golden brown, turn them over to cook the other side. Eat with jam or honey for a yummy snack.



Fish, steak, or hot dogs can be cooked directly on hot coals. It gives them a tasty flavor much different from other cooking methods.


Roasted Veggies

We often use aluminium foil to wrap veggies and place directly on the campfire coals. This method is great for potato, sweet potato, pumpkin. Carefully turn once or twice while cooking and check by poking with a sharp knife to feel if they are soft. Don't leave in for more than about 45 minutes otherwise there may be no veggies left.
