A while back, we went on a short car-camping trip to Blue Mounds, WI (an excellent campground which I highly recommend, if you’re in the area) I particularly enjoy the challenge of cooking over an open fire, which is easy enough to do when you’re grilling meats and vegetables, or toasting marshmallows, but a bit more challenging when it comes to baking, not in the least because you don’t have the equipment. I’d read this idea and was eager to try it.
I had pre-made and packed an applesauce muffin mix – simple enough, and requiring only a few additions to prepare it:
For the mix:
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp allspice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, divided
2 tablespoons quick cooking oats
(note: save a bit of the mix for dusting the bottom of each orange)
To prepare, add:
Then, I cut a small conical section out of each orange, to reach the rest of the insides more easily. After that, I cut around the inside of the orange and lifted it out in semicircle-like sections, and scraped the remaining pulp from the bottom with the point of my knife.
