A hot dessert is the perfect end to any camp meal. These pastries are as easy as they are scrumptious – let’s take a look at how they come together.

Blueberry and Custard Pastries 1

Ingredients

  • Fresh blueberries (any berries would work – fresh, frozen or freeze dried).
  • Organic custard – not too sweet (a thicker style is best).
  • Puff pastry.

Equipment

  • Jaffle iron. Ours is the Snow Peak Tramezzino Grill.
  • Bed of coals (gas burner is fine too). Here we are using the Snow Peak BBQ Box.
  • Spray oil (or alternative).

Preparation

  1. Lightly coat the jaffle iron with spray oil.
  2. Trim a base layer of pastry and lay it in to position.
  3. Dollop in a portion of custard being careful not to overload your iron.
  4. Place in the blueberries.
  5. Trim a top layer of pastry and lay it in place.

Cook

  1. Seal the jaffle iron and lay it in the coals.
  2. It’s best to cook these for longer on a cooler heat to prevent the outside burning and to make sure the inside cooks through.
  3. Check one side is golden brown and then rotate.
