Coronary Delight Campfire Desert




Introduction: Coronary Delight Campfire Desert

This has to be one of the richest and best deserts for the outdoors. Best made after a tough day of paddling. (It is so good that I once caught a very proper person trying to lick the sauce from the bottom of a square bottom pot)

Step 1: Ingredients

½ pound butter

½ pound brown sugar

Juice from 1 lemon


3 oz rum

Pound cake

Sour cream


Step 2: This Is a Campfire Quickie.

Melt the butter and stir in the brown sugar. Heat and stir until the mixture begins to caramelize.

Step 3: Making the Sauce, Adding Bananas

Slice the pound cake into 1” thick slices and toast on the grill. Don’t burn, just toast. This takes watching, but sets up an anticipation that adds to the desert.

Add the lemon juice, cinnamon and rum to brown sugar mixture and continue to stir.

Peel and slice sections of banana into the sauce. Cook only for 3-4 minutes.


Step 4: Presentation

Place a slice of pound cake on plate, ladle the sauce and bananas on top. Then place a dollop of sour cream onto the top of it all. The sour offsets the sweet in a dramatic way. Hard to stop…
