Camping Recipe: Campfire Cupcakes!

When I was in 5th grade, I went to a church summer camp with Ward church (called Kid's Camp). During my week away, I learned this yummy recipe that I still make when camping 15 years later! It is easy, and every time I make it, I am always surprised that it works!  It is a fun dessert alternative to your traditional (but always yummy) s'more.

What you need:
• Cake mix
• Eggs
• Oil
• Oranges
• Water
• Tin foil

How to:
- Start by cutting off the top of an orange and pitting the inside (no need to clean perfectly, the orange will bake off into the cake, and it is very yummy!)

- Next, mix your cake batter as indicated on the cake mix box (I did this in a ziplock gallon bag)

- Pour the mixed cake batter into the orange, filling the orange two-thirds full (the batter will rise like normal cupcakes)

- Wrap in tin foil and place in the coals of the fire (the peel may char a bit, but the cake will be okay)

- Let the cake sit in the coals for about 15 minutes and then check its progress (continue baking, if needed)

- Carefully unwrap the tin foil and enjoy your orange zest campfire cupcakes!
