Chocolate Orange Cake

This is an old camping favorite because it creates no dirty dishes as the cake is cooked in an orange.

Traditionally the orange is fully scooped out and a cake batter is added. This version leaves some of the fruit and its juice, then powdered cake mix is added on top making it even easier to make.

The result is a beautiful combination of chocolate and orange creating a jaffa like flavor. Easy to eat alone or pair with a mild cream, ice cream or custard.

Ingredients

1 orange

1 packet of chocolate cake mix

Equipment

hot coals

Recipe Directions

  1. Slice the top off the orange, keep it for later.

  2. Using a sharp spoon scoop out the orange, being careful not to put a hole in the side, or expose the bitter pith. Leave the base of the orange, about a quarter up, filled with orange juice.

  3. Scoop in 3 tablespoons of chocolate cake mix. This may be more or less depending on the size of the orange.

  4. Place the lid on the orange, then position in the coals. Try to achieve a hot heat, about 350 degrees F (180 degrees C). It is not necessary to bury the orange or similar.

  5. After 10 minutes take of the lid and check if the cake is cooked through. If cooked remove and serve, if not, continue cooking until done.
