Chocolate Orange Campfire Cakes are a perfect pudding for a wild night out with the kids. A cake cooked in an orange will get the kids intrigued and raring to have a go at this fun recipe. 


- Oranges. You'll need one orange per cake

- Instant cake mix. Look for ones where you just need to add water. We used a chocolate fudge cake mix, which worked well.

- Foil

- Campfire or BBQ


1.  First, you need to prepare each orange by slicing off the top at about 1/4 of the way down.

2. Hollow out the orange by removing the contents with a spoon.

6. The cooking time depends on the temperature of your campfire and where you place them in your campfire. It is probably a good idea to check them every 10 minutes.
