Ingredients

  • 2 pounds fresh mixed berries, such as blueberries, raspberries, and blackberries
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • Coarse salt

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon mixed with 1 teaspoon sugar

Directions

  1. Step 1

    Cook berries with 1/4 cup sugar, the water, and lemon juice in a cast-iron skillet set over a campfire or on a medium grill, until thickened, 10 to 15 minutes.

  2. Step 2

    Meanwhile, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and remaining 2 tablespoons sugar. Add buttermilk and butter; stir until a moist dough forms.

  3. Step 3
