Biscuit dough on a stick, roasted over the coals, creates a rugged strawberry shortcake that perfect for eating around the fire.

  • Yield: 4 servings
  • Difficulty: Easy
  • Total: 40 mins
  • Active: 30 mins

Ingredients (5)

For the shortcake dough:

  • 2 cups baking mix (such as Bisquick)
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter, melted
  • ¼ cup heavy cream

For serving:

  • 2 cups sliced strawberries, sweetened to taste
  • Whipped cream


  1. Build a campfire and let the flames die down. There should be a coating of white ash on the coals.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the baking mix, melted butter, and heavy cream. Stir until just mixed (don’t overwork the dough).
  3. With clean hands, roll the dough into walnut-size balls. Flatten a dough ball and insert it on the end of a stick. Form a corncob-shaped cake about ¼ inch thick. Hold the stick over the fire pit or charcoal grill until the cake is golden brown and cooked through, turning so it cooks evenly, about 10-15 minutes. Repeat with the remaining dough balls.
  4. To serve, crumble the shortcake into serving bowls and top with strawberries and whipped cream.
