Sweet Cake

Though my kids could live on a S'more diet, the adults in our camping group were getting a little tired of this age-old desert. We adapted a sweet cake recipe to campfire cooking and came up with a decadent treat that's great for grownups and kids too.

Servings: 6 to 8
Prep Time: 25 minutes


  • Pound cake
  • Sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tablespoons peanut butter (optional)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 cup mini chocolate chips


  1. Pour the milk into a shallow bowl
  2. Mix the coconut and chocolate chips in a second bowl
  3. Thoroughly mix two heaping teaspoons of peanut butter into the milk (optional)
  4. Cut the pound cake into 1-inch cubes, and insert a cake cube on a roasting stick
  5. Roll the cake cube in the condensed milk, covering it completely
  6. Next roll the cake in the coconut/chocolate chip mixture, pressing the coconut into the cake if necessary to get it to stick
  7. Roast the cake cube, as you would a marshmallow
  8. The heat will caramelize the condensed milk, roast the coconut and melt the chocolate chips all at the same time
