Orange Peel Campfire Muffin





Introduction: Orange Peel Campfire Muffin

I absolutely love camping. But do you know what I love most about camping? Why, the campfire food, of course! You have your pie iron recipes, your tin foil meal recipes, and of course, s'mores. Here is one of the tin foil meal variety, the orange peel muffin.

Step 1: Ingredients and Tools

To make your tasty muffins, you will need:
  • Oranges (of course!)
  • "Just add water" muffin mix (But you can bring a pre-made recipe as well! I don't like to cart around extra stuff, so I just use the mix.)
  • Tin foil
  • Knife
  • Spray cooking oil
  • Spoon
  • (Not shown) Bowl
  • A grate or something to put the oranges on over the campfire.
  • A campfire!

Step 2: Cut the Oranges

This is pretty self explanatory. Try to cut your oranges right down the middle. Make sure the brown place where the stm one was is facing upward when you cut.

Step 3: Scoop Out the Guts

Take your spoon and scoop all of the orange guts out. There is a method to it. Bring your spoon all the way around the edge to loosen the orange. keep going around deeper and deeper. Once you are right near the bottom, use the spoon as a lever and pry the orange guts out. 5 points if you get them all out in one piece!

Step 4: Fill Peel With Mix

If you have the just add water mix, put it into a bowl and, well, just add water! If you brought a homemade mix with you, skip that part. Pour the mix into the orange peel until it is a centimeter (.4 inches) from the top.

Step 5: Wrap the Orange

Tear off a piece of tin foil around 20 cm (8 in) long. Spray it evenly with your cooking spray. Place the tin foil on top of the orange and wrap it up. Place it on the grate on the campfire. with a fork, poke a few little hole on the top of the foil.

Step 6: Wait..... and Finish!

Wait until some muffin mix comes out of the top of the holes. When that is cooked (or when you stick a toothpick in and it comes out dry) You are done! Enjoy the muffin-y, slightly citrus-y, campfire-y taste of your muffins!

    How does it taste


    Aluminium foil. Is tin foil even on the market anymore? 

    It's sold mostly in the region near area 51, and used mainly for hats.  :p

    Can you eat the peel? or do you take the muffing out then eat it

    IF you want to cut down on the clean up part, put your mix and water in a zip lock bag and just squish to mix, once mixed cut the bottom corner off the bag and just squeeze the batter in your orange like your using a piping bag! Looks yummy, I bet the brownie would be great, orange and chocolate go great together!

    think you could
    A:eat the inards
    B:make a brownie this way?


    Eat the innards? Do you mean the orange or the muffin? You can eat both! And I'm sure you could make a brownie this way, just don't be surprised when you find a citrus flavor in there!

    thanks, i men't the oarnge. do you know of any other baked goods in an oarnge
    ex: pancake


    Pancake I can see happening because it is cooked in a similar way to a muffin. A cookie, on the other hand, I don't think would work, because it wouldn't cook all the way through.
