Biscuits are a delicious, fluffy treat that can be enjoyed anytime, anywhere. And what better way to enjoy them than while camping?

Here are tips on how to cook biscuits while camping. With just a few simple ingredients and a little bit of time, you’ll be able to enjoy fresh, hot biscuits even in the great outdoors!

1. Gather Your Ingredients

For this recipe, you’ll need flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, butter, milk, and an egg. Most of these ingredients can be easily found at your local grocery store. If you’re planning on doing a lot of camping, it might be worth investing in a small portable cooler to keep your perishables fresh.

2. Preheat Your Oven

If you’re using a camp stove, set it up according to the manufacturer’s instructions and preheat it to 400 degrees Fahrenheit. If you’re using a solar oven, set it up in an area where it will get good sun exposure, and be sure to preheat it according to the manufacturer’s instructions.

3. Mix Together the Dry Ingredients

In a large bowl, mix together 2 cups of flour, 1 teaspoon of salt, 4 teaspoons of baking powder, and 1 tablespoon of sugar.

4. Cut in the Butter

Using a pastry cutter or your hands, cut in 1/2 cup of cold butter so it looks like crumbs.

5. Add the Milk and Egg

Slowly add 1 cup of milk to the mixture, stirring until just moistened. Then add 1 beaten egg and mix until everything is well combined.

6. Roll Out the Dough

Place the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll it out to 1/2-inch thickness. Then use a biscuit cutter or a glass turned upside down to cut out biscuits. Reroll any scraps and cut out more biscuits until you’ve used up all the dough.

7. Bake the Biscuits Until Golden Brown

This should last about 12-15 minutes, then serve warm with butter and honey., or your favorite jam. Enjoy!
