We're used to preparing really easy picnic dessert recipes for when we go out on the boat at our weekender, Lake Haven. Often it's a matter of tossing in whatever that's been prepared and in the pantry.
Our Jetty At Lake Haven
Picnics Are Our Norm Here
Picnic food needs to be easily handled being eaten with hands, so they need to be fairly firm, not crumbly and not messy to eat. I make slices and muffins or cup cakes which can be made into individual pieces and stored in an airtight container.
Here are some of the items we have ready for a picnic dessert when at Lake Haven:
These items all survived bumpy boat rides and were just right to revive the family on arrival at the island.
Naturally when we're chilling out here, I am prepared that we'd go boating when the weather's good and the sun's out, so I have these picnic sweets ready and available. I have to hide them so they don't get eaten before our little adventure on the lake.
Have a look through our desserts, cakes and easy baking recipes for delicious yet so simple recipes for your picnic.
Be sure to pack bottled water, and if you're taking the dog, pack a little container to pour water into.
If you will be preparing tea or coffee on your picnic, pack a thermos of hot water, tea bags, sachets of coffee, creamer and sugar and plastic mugs.
A roll of kitchen paper, rather than serviettes will come in handy.
Enjoy your day out on your picnic!
