Campfire Orange Cakes

I have been looking forward to camping so I could try out this campfire recipe. First you cut the tops off of oranges and scoop the guts out with a spoon.

Mix up instant cake mix in your coffee pot. Hah hah. No, only mix it in your coffee pot if you are like me and forget to bring a bowl.

Fill each orange up a little past halfway with the cake mix.

Put the tops back on and wrap the oranges with aluminum foil.

Set the oranges in the campfire coals for about 20 minutes.

The cake bakes right in the oranges and is very moist with a tinge of orange flavor.

I can't imagine cake without frosting so I brought some along to top each cake. I also served up the cake with some of the scooped out orange. Now I'm wondering what other kinds of cakes I could bake inside of oranges!

  1. I notice that some of the cakes are on the edge of the fire, did you rotate them around while they cooked? Also, do you think you could do this on the grill? I think I try it.

  2. So cute! Have you seen the Coleman app for the iPhone? It looks really cool - you can plan meals. Makes me want to plan a camping trip ;)

    1. Hum, but it is not so simple as it as recipe air. All the same, I'll see if I arrive there. I have lot of people at home at the moment, a group of tourists who come to learn the french and taking driving lessons.

  3. Yes, I turned the oranges around, even upside down and rotated their positions.

    I gotta go find that Coleman iPhone app!

  7. I wonder if you could mix some of the orange in the cake batter or the frosting for extra yummy orange flavor.

  8. WOW! I have never seen anything like this...so awesome. If I ever go camping I am SO doing this.

  9. When I was a kid, we did this at Girl Scout Camp with spice cake. So yummy!

  10. These are super yummy with cinnamon rolls inside - top with frosting (obviously!).

  11. This may be dorky of me to say, but this is GENIUS. I may actually try camping just to try this.

    1. try cutting the potatoes into chunks with a dollup of butter, salt/seasoning then wrapping in foil. works with zucchini and squash as well.

  13. So much of camping for me really is the food! We did potatoes this trip too. Took about an hour I think. We had to snack while we waited!

  14. Loved the orange cakes idea...
    Even at home, in the oven, it would be great, kids would absolutely love it!!!!
    I started following your blog in 2001 - you even posted a link to my blog at the time (http://www.ljcfyi.com/2001/10/linkage-i-cant-understand-word-on.html). Then I gave the whole "blogosphere" a break for a couple of years and now I'm back... Great to know you're still around and better everyday!!!!!
    Best wishes!

  15. Made this last weekend for our fire pit night with the neighbors...everyone thought the idea was awesome and loved the taste of the cake. It was a hit and something we will do again!

  20. Thanks so much for sharing this idea! I saw it on Pinterest and it was an intriguing idea. And, by the way, you take great pics!

    ReplyDelete
  21. What a genius idea! And orange and chocolate are heavenly together!

    ReplyDelete
  22. we did this in girl scouts and used white cake mix

    ReplyDelete
  23. i'm gonna try it with a water mellon

    ReplyDelete
  24. Works great with any kind of berry muffin mix for breakfast!

    ReplyDelete
  25. That looks amazing!! Thanks for the idea! Hmmm, cakes, muffins, how fun!! Cheers!!

    ReplyDelete
  26. to make it even easier...make the batter at home, put in zippy bag...snip end and squeeze into orange while sitting around the fire...

    ReplyDelete
  27. We use Jiffy Blueberry Muffin mix when we go camping... the taste is amazing, and it is a fun breakfast, especially for the kids!

    ReplyDelete
  28. I'm going camping in a few weeks and will be making these!

    ReplyDelete
  29. It's official, I am going to be taking a million oranges with me camping next time! I am going to try the cakes, muffins AND cinnamon rolls! Thanks for all the great ideas you guys!!

  30. oh, this is better than any stuffed banana on the grill. Cake as a bbq dessert, genius!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I've heard of this one before but never tried it! This has re-inspired me to give it a go! :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. I guess it's not a bad thing to have a little touch of home along for the camping trip. I wonder what other fruits I can use for this though.

    ReplyDelete
  33. This is kind of weird considering the taste of the orange zest would kind of stick with the coolness of the ice cream. This is also officially interesting for me because I am quite curious about it. Since I know someone who is pretty much involved with a catering company in Sydney, I've asked her if she could actually make one and she was able to. It really tasted great.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I wonder if you could make these in a oven

    ReplyDelete
  35. Yum. Gave up camping but not desserts. Will try this in my back yard fire pit.

    ReplyDelete
  36. I remember doing this with brownie mix and it turning out really well! Never thought to try cake mix! Thanks! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. This is a terrific and delicious idea! I can't wait to try this during one of our camping trips, too!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Hey this is a great idea, thanks! Seeing this makes me more excited for our upcoming trip with my family. We are going camping next month and this would be an amazing treat for my kids.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cant wait for our camping trip so we can try this,sounds awesome

  40. have to try this in my oven...u know, if u bbq them for about 15-17 min instead u might end up with melt-in-the-middle chocolate fondants instead! Yummmmm.......and no need for frosting on the top!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Im doing these tonight wit strawberry glaze in the center with whip cream as frosting n chocolate cake mmmm....

  43. I did this recently....was really yummy. BUT cleaning out the oranges was very time consuming. Like carving a pumpkin. Any tips or suggestions?

    1. Yes, I think so. Just snuggle the oranges down amongst the charcoal briquets.

  47. I would never have thought of baking a cake that way. It looks like they came out quite well. I can just imagine that the hint of orange made everything taste a lot better too. Thanks for sharing the method and your pictures with us.

  48. Super fun idea! I might try this in the oven sometime, too. Would make a fun presentation at a party.

  66. how to track a phone
    We left the backpacks on a rock and prepared to go around. When we were on the other side, the clouds moved: there appeared a clear sky and the sun rose majestically. At the same time, a cold wind started running. When this fell, it was the perfect time for photographs. There was good light and all the elements surrounding the lagoon were reflected in it like a giant mirror: clear sky, clouds, Pierced hill, snowy mountains, yellow flowers, a quillay and a pine tree that stood around . A hummingbird hovered and several birds were heard.

  67. Das Deck konzentriert sich auf die gegnerischen Karten zu begegnen. Der Riese Skelett dient als Tank, während die Speer Goblins Feuerschutz bieten. Der Musketier und Hexe kann auch auf Offensiven gesendet werden, wenn keine hoch HP Feind Karten zu begegnen. Goblin Hut Druck eine Spur, während die Walküre und Pfeile kurze Arbeit von Horden machen. Schließlich ist das Skelett Armee immer zu begegnen Giants und Princes vorbehalten. Später können Sie die Walküre mit einem Drachen zu ersetzen.

    Die wichtigste Form der Handlung ist die Synergie zwischen dem Giant, Musketier, und Prinz. Die Low-Cost-Karten werden für die Verteidigung der Basis in erster Linie vorbehalten. Die richtige Platzierung ist entscheidend, wie ein Feuerball oder andere starke Bereich Schaden-Karten können kurze Arbeit Ihrer Truppen machen. Schieben beide Bahnen so viel wie möglich. Am besten das Deck werden Sie eine Krone net, wenn Sie alle drei zu bekommen scheitern. Wenn Sie möchten, können Sie den Mini P.E.K.K.A. ersetzen mit einem Ritter.

  70. I did cancel one performance in Holland where they thought my music was so easy that they didn't rehearse at all. And so the first time when I found that out, I rehearsed the orchestra myself in front of the audience of 3,000 people and the next day I rehearsed through the second movement -- this was the piece _Cheap Imitation_ -- and they then were ashamed. The Dutch people were ashamed and they invited me to come to the Holland festival and they promised to rehearse. And when I got to Amsterdam they had changed the orchestra, and again, they hadn't rehearsed.
