"A fun treat to make while sitting around a campfire! Maraschino cherries are optional, but they add to the fun. Adjust quantities for how many people are roasting their dessert. Also good with a scoop of vanilla ice cream over the top of the hot cake."

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Make sure your campfire is built and going strong.

Step 2

Set out two large pieces of HEAVY DUTY aluminum foil.

Step 3

Cut cake donut in half and set one half on each piece of aluminum foil.

Step 4

Lay a pineapple ring on each donut half, then place a stemless Maraschino cherry in the center of the pineapple ring; dot the pineapple slices with butter, then sprinkle the brown sugar over each slice.

Step 5

Wrap aluminum foil tightly around the donut half and toppings, making sure the packet is sealed well.

Step 6

Place wrapped packets directly into the coals of the campfire and cook for 10-15 minutes.

Step 7

Using LONG TONGS, remove the packets from the fire. Be careful... these are HOT.

Step 8

Using a hot pad or oven mitt, slowly unwrap the packets (the steam will also be HOT). Enjoy!
