Campfire Cake In An Orange Shell

I actually don't care for cake. I have to say though that this is one of the best cakes I've eaten. It is incredibly moist. You can really make this recipe your own. Add nuts, chocolate chips, rum, any cake mix really. Because it cooks in an orange it turns out very moist and creamy.
Do give this a try and have the kids help it's fun to make.

One 8 oz. box of Jiffy Yellow Cake Mix
(or Use 1/2 recipe good for 3 oranges made from scratch)
6 Large Oranges
Water per box instructions
Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil
Wax Paper Optional
Ziploc Storage Bag
Knife and spoon

Mix dry ingredients into a plastic bag prior to packing for camp trip

Store in a cool place


Add water

If making from scratch then add egg & oil to bag

Do this just before cooking at campsite

Mix with your fingers right inside bag

Cut top off of oranges and scoop center out and eat

Nip tip off of baggie tip and empty into orange shell leaving room at top

Wrap in wax paper and foil with orange put back together

Cook in hot coals or grill for 20 minutes turning a few times
Or cook at 350 degrees for about 25 minutes

My Boy Scouts did this for a camporee, and won a ribbon for their efforts! The judges were impressed! :D
