Hands down my favorite GS camp dessert ever! Super easy and oh so tasty!

Top Review by Zetty66

What a great, easy campfire dessert!! I made this on the grill top over the campfire--I was afraid it would burn in the embers and it was great. Next time I may try it with the premade/prepackaged shortcakes that Hostess has for ease in transport. Thanks for some camping dessert variety, Kit_Kat!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Slice cakes into 12 even pieces.
  2. Tear 12 equally sized pieces of heavy duty aluminum foil (I always use Reynolds as what passes for "heavy duty" in the store brand variety is somthing a kin to tissue paper).
  3. Spray each piece of foil with cooking spray.
  4. Place 1 slice of cake on each piece of foil.
  5. Top each piece of cake with a heaping tablespoon of pineapple.
  6. Place one tablespoon of brown sugar and one tablespoon of butter on top of pineapple.
  7. Wrap securely in foil and heat in embers until topping is melted.
  8. This recipe can also be baked at home in a conventional oven. Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes.
