Smokey Chocolate Cupcakes

A couple of weekends ago we went camping at McGregor Provincial Park, near Port Elgin. What a nice site – it was fairly private and well maintained. It had two picnic tables and a fire pit.  Great set-up!

Here are a few of the many photos I took of the blue-green shorelines of Lake Huron and some of its inhabitants.

After a day of exploring the campgrounds, relaxing at the beach and at our campsite, it was time to prepare for supper, get the campfire started and to do some experimenting.

The experiment: To bake chocolate cupcakes over the campfire. So, did it work? See the following photos:


Add milk, shake, pour

Keep pouring

Foil-tent oven, bake

And... we have cupcakes

Peel foil to eat

TA DA! Smokey Chocolate Cupcakes!

This was a fun experiment. The cupcakes were moist and tasted okay until I tried one the next day; the smokey flavour from the campfire was strong a bit off-putting. It was probably more prominent the next day as we weren’t eating them around the smokey campfire.
