Campfire sticky buns

“If a bear ever comes calling around your campfire, give him a bun and he’s sure to become your best friend! I made this recipe at Camping Chutes aux Iroquois when I was there with Camping Québec last summer. #bobencamping” - Bob le Chef

Ingredients

Preparation time: 15 minutes 

Time for the dough to rise: 45 minutes

Cooking time: 6 to 8 minutes



Ingredients for one dozen servings

One dozen sticks (slightly larger than what you would use for hotdogs and marshmallows)

For the dough:
  • 250 ml (1 cup) warm water
  • 30 ml (2 Tbsp) instant yeast
  • 80 ml (⅓ cup) melted butter
  • 60 ml (4 Tbsp) sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 250 ml (1 cup) milk
  • 900 ml (3⅓ cups) flour
  • Pinch of salt
For the icing (adult version):
  • 250 ml (1 cup) icing sugar
  • 1.5 oz bourbon
  • Few drops of vanilla

Method

For the dough:
  • Sprinkle the yeast over the warm water
  • In a bowl, combine the melted butter and sugar
  • Stir in the egg
  • Add the warm water, with the yeast and a pinch of salt
  • Stir in the flour and milk, adding a bit at a time, alternating between the two
  • Knead the dough by hand for about 10 minutes
  • Place the dough in an oiled bowl, cover it with a damp tea towel and allow it to rise for at least 45 minutes
  • Sprinkle flour on your work surface, turn out the dough and flatten it to about 1 cm thick
  • Sprinkle with cinnamon
  • Cut the dough into strips about 2 cm wide and wind each strip around the end of a stick
  • Cook over a campfire, slowly rotating the stick (about 4 minutes over coals)
For the icing:
  • Stir all the ingredients together in a bowl until smooth  
  • Dip the tip of each bun in the icing and enjoy!
