Well, last week was full of giveaways and fun…but I’m so glad to be back to sharing my favorite recipes. If you haven’t had a chance to enter the giveaways, please do so….I really hope you will help me in supporting these wonderful small businesses.
Camping season is in full force these days and we took a 3-day camping a couple weeks ago, so I had to share share some of our wonderful food. Just because you are camping doesn’t mean you can only eat hot dogs and hamburgers (in fact these don’t even make it on our trip).
I have no idea where this recipe came from, but I was introduced to it when I was in Girl Scouts. We went camping a lot once we were in Jr. High and this was always a staple breakfast on our trips.

8 plain cake donuts (apparently I need to tell ya, that these are homemade)
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 can pineapple rings in juice
16 pieces of heavy duty tin (~12×12, for wrapping donuts in)
Prepare a medium-hot fire. Lay out 8 tin foil squares, then layer the next 8 on top. Place a donut on each of the doubled foil squares. Cut donuts in half, like you would a bagel. Open up the doughnut, with the cut sides up.
Sprinkle one half of each donut with about 1 tsp of brown sugar. Gently lay on a pineapple ring. Sprinkle an additional 1 tsp brown sugar on the pineapple ring and top with other half of the donut. Wrap the donut tightly with one piece of foil and then repeat with the other piece of foil. (It needs to be double wrapped if cooking over an open fire to protect it).
Using long tongs, place over the fire on a grill grate or if using charcoal, you can place directly on ready coals. Cook for about 10 minutes, flipping them about half way through the cooking time. Remove carefully from the fire and allow to cool just a couple minutes.
**You can easily make this at home over a regular grill or I’ve been know to make it in the mircowave…replacing the foil with papertowels.**

Wow, I love donuts and my kid too. I’ll try to make it myself to my boy. Hope he like it. Thank you so much.
I just have to tell you I love each recipe on your site better than the last!! Thank you so much for sharing such wonderful ideas and recipes! I cannot wait to make so many of these things! My kids are going to LOVE me, lol, thanks again!
🙂 🙂 Now I’m wishing I would have picked up that donut maker at the Kohls Black Friday sale. Now, I must pay full price because I must have HOMEMADE (GF) donuts! 🙂 🙂
oh man this looks good!!
I think it is pretty amazing that you even considered a cooked dessert while camping, let alone home made donuts. LOL.
I think its amazing that you even though of dessert while camping let alone donut’s from scratch. I am actually going camping this week and may just have to go with this idea.
These donuts look amazing! If I didn’t just start my diet and a weightloss challenge yesterday, I’d be making them! Of course, I’m not a baker so I’d use store bought donuts!
Yummy! I will have to try these! Following via Time 4 Mommy Blog Hop Tuesday!
Hawaiian donuts work very well in the solar oven too. I make them with store bought donuts as I am not as industrious as you to make homemade donuts.
These are so perfect for summer–I want to go out and buy pineapple and (GASP!) donuts and make these tonight! 😀
I have heard so much about your yummy homemade donuts! Invite us over to share next time. 😉

considering there is no link to another recipe to make the cake donuts… I would assume that any rational person who clicked this link would also assume that the said donuts were store bought. Just saying.
There are some recipes that I just don’t part with and my donut recipe is one of them.
I never assumed they were store bought. I believe that most rational people would assume that she cooks real food for her family instead of relying on processed junk. It’s absurd to think that every ingredient needs a linked recipe or needs to be specified as “homemade”. That’s a given on Wendy’s blog. Besides, most people already know how to make a simple donut.

wow. I can’t believe you linked up to a Real Food Blog with a recipe that includes store bought cake donuts. This is scary.
WOW! Apparently you don’t ready my blog! I have to pretty much make everything from scratch due to my daughter’s allergies….I don’t think I ever said store bought donuts, did I?
