Oregon Coast Camping with Strawberry Crumble Dessert
This Strawberry Crumble Dessert is perfect for camping or any summer evening dessert. It’s tart, and delicious served with Vanilla ice cream. Double the recipe for Memorial Day!
Friends, my husband and I are out camping in our Westy (1987 VW Westfalia camper van)! It’s delightful on the Oregon coast, and we love our humble little home for a few days! We’re headed up north, which is actually my favorite part of the Oregon coast. Our family has so many fond memories of being at Pacific City and Cannon Beach! (Here’s a post on 10 Reasons Why We Love our Westy Camper.)
In the meantime, I thought I’d share with you some pictures of our little camper. Nighttime is my favorite for sitting around the fire, talking, dishes are cleaned up, and we’re enjoying a sweet dessert.
Strawberry Crumble Dessert.
What sweet dessert? A very simple Strawberry Crumble Dessert. I made it in our camp stove oven, and the tartness of the berries (no sugar added) with the yummy topping … oh, my!
Bake in Camp Chef Oven.
I sliced the berries at home. Made the crumble before we left. Put it together and baked in our Camp Chef oven for 30 minutes.
Here’s a little secret about me and camping. I’m a happy cook if I have a plan, and I can chop, prepare, and get everything ready before I leave.
There’s something about the outdoors that sucks my energy (it all goes into the beautiful elements) from wanting to spend any time cooking! But … we have to eat, and I still like to be creative.
And, I like to surprise my husband with a sweet nosh after dinner!
So this was a hit.
Tart, sweet, the perfect outdoor treat.
I’ll be sharing more camping posts this summer, so stay tuned! (Or, did you check out my Instagram beach pictures?)
