Fun Orange & Cake Treat



I wanted a special treat for my nephews visit and something that he could help with. Take a box of “Jiffy” cake mix, a navel orange and muffin tin. Cut the top off the orange and scoop out the insides saving the juice as you go. Mix the cake mix according to directions, except…use the orange juice in place of the water called for on the cakemix box. (If you need more liquid use water for the difference). Now fill orange half full of mix and place one in each muffin cup. Bake according to directions on the box, or till toothpick inserted comes out clean. You get a great tasting orange treat and can use icing or not. I also do this when camping out only I wrap the orange in heavy duty foil and sit upright next to hop coals and turn every few minutes and cook for about 10-15 minutes. You have to be careful as the heat is very intense up close so I let the kids help prepare and I do the cooking.
