Camp Fire Recipe: Strawberry Scones

When strawberries are in season, I am cooking all sorts of food. This recipe is one that I came up with one morning when I was debating on what to fix for breakfast. These scones come out nice and fluffy. While I like my strawberry scones naked, you may want to top your scones with butter or cream cheese.

If you are looking for a traditional scone, you can simply roll out the dough and cut it out into rectangles. Once that is done, just follow the recipe as noted.

Camp Fire Recipe:  Strawberry Scones


Liquid or spray oil

2 large eggs

1 tablespoon plus ¼ cup of heavy cream

¼ cup of buttermilk

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 cups of all-purpose flour

1/3 cup plus 1 tablespoon of granulated sugar

2 teaspoons of baking powder

¼ teaspoon of salt

6 tablespoons of unsalted butter

2/3 cup of strawberries



  1. Start the process by building a fire to prepare coals.
  2. Lightly grease a 10 inch Dutch oven with liquid or spray oil.
  3. In a small bowl, beat one egg along with one tablespoon of heavy cream. Set aside.
  4. In another bowl, add the remaining egg, heavy cream, buttermilk and vanilla. Beat to mix.
  5. Using a medium size bowl, mix flour, granulated sugar, and baking powder together.
  6. Cut the six tablespoons of butter into small pieces. Add to bowl in step 5.
  7. Incorporate the butter into the flour mixture until it looks like crumbs.
  8. Create a well in the flour mixture in step 7. Pour mixture from step 4 into the well and stir until mixed.
  9. Remove the hulls and chop the strawberries.
  10. Add the strawberries to batter in step 8 and gently stir.
  11. Drop the dough by spoonfuls into the greased 10 inch Dutch oven.
  12. Once all the dough has been used, brush the mixture from step 3 on top of the dough and sprinkle with one tablespoon of granulated sugar.
  13. Place the lid on the Dutch oven and move to a heat resistant surface.
  14. Take 10 prepared coals and move them the heat resistant surface.
  15. Arrange the prepared coals in a circle and place the 10 inch Dutch oven on top.
  16. Cover the lid with prepared coals.
  17. Cook for 20 minutes.

Once done, knock off the coals from the lid and serve.
