Ash Cakes!

So the deliciousness that is covered in dirt and ash has additional butter, cinnamon, and sugar to go along with it.  I know it looks gross and unsanitary, it probably is, but it's so good.
The number 1 requirement for this treat is a real fire.  Preferably out in the wild.

So how to: mix the dry batter ingredients with water in a gallon size plastic baggie, add SMALL amounts of water otherwise you'll have too much water and probably no extra flour on hand out in the forrest.

Knead to create a dough that can be worked by hand (this is tricky, but totally doable).

Grab a golf ball size of dough and using just your hands work it into about 1/4" thick pancake.

THROW IT IN WARMISH ASHES.  If the ashes are really hot and glowing, you'll probably scorch it before you have time to even flip it.

Keep an eye on your ash cake.  You'll need to cook it on both sides before eating.  This may included moving it around to different hotter or cooler ashes in the process.

Once cooked, brush off the big chunks and spread butter, cinnamon, and sugar on it.  Nutella would be good, too.  There's a billion things I'm sure you could put on these to make them tasty.  That's your job :).

Enjoy you ruggedness!

P.S. This is a warning that your hands might be a sticky mess...the more the merrier, right?
