Campfire Coconut Macaroon Cake

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by JTsMom

Extra large bread cubes dipped into sweetened condensed milk then rolled in coconut and slow roasted over the campfire. The ingredients meld into a toasted bite of bliss and smell incredible! We can hardly wait each year for camping season so that we can make these. Note: For best results do not use an airy bread like Wonder. I make mine in my bread machine. A more dense bread works best. Enjoy!

Top Review by Mrs. Moon

I took this to a family camping trip and it was a HUGE hit. Kids and adult alike loved cooking them. We found they worked much better on a two pronged fork. I also made a loaf of bread in my breadmaker. Very fun! We will be making these again! Thanks for sharing!
