Foil pack recipes can be made with just a few ingredients. I've been experimenting with foil packs for quite some time. A few weeks ago I received several recipes in my email that I started trying.

And you don't have to eat coffee cake along with a cup of coffee - but it does go quite well with that first cup of java in the morning. PineandLakes.com Illustration
