Campfire Orange Cake

Jen Phanomrat

Jen enlists the help of a friend to make a campfire cake using a hollowed out orange, but first, they need to set up the tent.



  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 6 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
  • ¾ cup sugar
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 egg
  • ½ cup Guinness
  • ½ tbsp vanilla extract
  • ½ cup butter
  • 4 oranges

Let's get Cooking...

  1. Slice ⅓ off the top of each orange and scoop out the flesh. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl or container, combine all ingredients.
  3. Fill each hollowed orange ¾ of the way up with cake batter. Cover the tops with the orange lids and secure with toothpicks. Wrap each orange in foil and set on top of hot coals. Roast for 20-25 minutes or until fully cooked through.
