Cooking over an open fire is one of the best things about camping. Forget about the traditional roasted marshmallows and add this fun (and easy) camp recipe to your camping menu:



Before you start assembling your oranges, make sure you have your campfire ready, whether it be coals or open flames, and have your batter pre-made.

Fresh Oranges


1. Slice the top off an orange and hollow it out
2. Fill the orange 3/4th of the way up with prepared cake batter
3. Place the top of the orange back on
4. Wrap orange in tinfoil

Place your wrapped orange on smoldering coals or in a spot that is away from direct open flames. Let it cook for about a half an hour, and presto! Yummy Cake-in-an-Orange.
