Easy Campfire Breakfast Recipes | Drop Scones / Pancakes

Food and Fire: Drop Scones or Pancakes

Another easy and firm campfire breakfast (or afternoon snack) favourite is Drop Scones – serve with maple syrup. Surprisingly easy and often not on your radar with busy mornings but while glamping, enjoy the slower pace and rustle up some pancakes for brekkie!


25g unsalted butter
140g self-raising flour
pinch of fine salt
1 tbsp white caster sugar (leave out for savoury version, and replace with a pinch of pepper if you fancy it)
1 large egg
1 tsp vanilla extract. (leave out of the savoury version, and add a pinch of dried herbs if you fancy a herby flavour)
150ml semi-skimmed milk.


  1. Make the mix in a ziplock bag and pour out to make drop scones.
  2. Heat a skillet or pan (or Dutch Oven lid turned upside down) on the campfire to a moderate heat. Pour out a measures of mix onto the pan and wait for bubbles to evenly form, flip and wait until golden brown.
  3. Serve with maple syrup, golden syrup, jam, chocolate spread, honey, or even marmite (if you leave out the sugar and vanilla extract!)
