This is one of those recipes where you don’t really use measurements that much. Just add or sprinkle on what you or your family thinks works the best and it’ll be delicious. We also don’t really have a set name for this recipe, but it’s quickly become the favorite anytime we’re cooking outdoors. You can easily make this alongside anything anytime you are cooking on an open campfire or grill.


  • 4 apples of your choice, sliced
  • Brown sugar
  • Allspice, ground
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg, ground
  • Maple syrup
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • Granola
  • Apple sauce


  1. Melt the butter in a large cast-iron pan and add the apple slices. Cook for a few minutes or until they just start to soften.
  2. Add the spices and brown sugar and stir to mix. Then add the maple syrup and stir again. Now move the apples as close to the center of the pan as possible and top with the granola.
  3. Spoon the apple sauce around the edges of the apples and cover with a lid or aluminum foil. Let cook for 5 to 10 minutes depending on the heat of your fire or grill. The idea is to “bake” the apples and get a little color on the granola. Check occasionally, and when done scoop servings into bowls and serve with your favorite ice cream or simply as is.
