How To Make Campfire Orange Cakes
It’s a really simple recipe: cake batter + orange! The cake batter is infused with orange essence while being bake, make it extra moist. So good!
Start by slicing off the tops of some large oranges and scooping out the insides of the orange with a spoon. For this recipe, we only need the shell from the oranges. So you can make some freshly squeezed orange juice with the inside. It goes well with the cake.
Make your own cake batter or use a cake mix. Add the cake batter into the orange, 2/3 full. Add the top of the orange back and wrap each orange in foil.
Now it’s ready to go into a campfire, grill or oven to bake (350 F). They take about 25-30 minutes to cook through. Serve and enjoy!
