Look! It’s a cake baked in an orange peel — in a campfire! See what’s inside, and what it looks like after baking…

Emily of the blog Today’s Letters sent us this clever cake recipe — she and her husband tried it out on their last camping trip. Take a cake mix, some oil and water, and some oranges, then add campfire and bake! Ta-da! Baked orange cakes. Move on over, S’Mores.

We love this idea, and we think you could even adapt it with a real from-scratch cake recipe, and make them over a grill. Even though it’s getting cold outside, campfires are very much part of the fall landscape, and we think that some hot chocolate and campfire orange cake might go together very well.
