Delicious and pure fun, these desserts will kick your campfire up a notch

When the night air starts to cool, it’s time to gather around the campfire and bust out the guitars, your best ghost stories, and, of course, dessert. But be warned: these ooey, gooey, easy-to -prep treats just might steal the show

Jackson’s Falls Dessert Bannock This simple bannock recipe is adapted from the Public School House restaurant at Jackson’s Falls Country Inn in Prince Edward County, Ont., where First Nations owner Lee Arden Lewis features Nativeinspired cuisine. The bannock gets baked over prepared hot coals in about 20–30 minutes.

5 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

2½ tbsp baking powder

1/3 cup sugar

2 tsp salt

1 tbsp ground dried sumac, optional (see Tip, below)

½ cup vegetable oil

2½–3 cups water

¼ cup butter, melted

Nutella, whipped cream, chopped strawberries or cinnamon sugar,to taste

1.Choose clean, green sticks about as thick as your thumb;peel the bark off their ends (about 8”).

2 In a medium bowl, mix flour,baking powder, sugar,salt, and sumac (if using). Add oil and just enough water, a little at a time, to form soft dough that’s not too sticky. Knead lightly in bowl, adding a little flour as needed, with well-oiled hands for a few minutes, until dough is elastic; divide into 6–8 pieces.
