Cooking Over a Campfire- Campfire Blueberry Orange Muffins

The folks over at Apron Strings seem to have mastered some amazingly delicious looking recipes that can be cooked over the campfire!  The next time you get a campfire roaring with your BBQ Dragon, hitch your wagon to one of Apron Strings recipes and be ready for your friends and family to beg for the next campfire!


These babies are so delicious and so foolproof even kids as young a 5 can put them together with minimal help and throw them in the campfire.

Here is the entire recipe:

Stir up a box of blueberry muffin mix according to the package directions.

Cut an orange in half and scoop out all the orange flesh. Save orange flesh for another time, or strain and drink the orange juice.


Fill one half of emptied orange with blueberry muffin mix.

Just throw them in the fire. No, really. Literally toss them in the fire. I know, I know. This might be scary the first time you do it. But trust me – they will not burn! The orange peel will insulate the muffin mix from burning. The orange peel itself might blacken a little, but the mix in the middle will turn out steamed and delicious. Like a steamed pudding. With a delicious orange flavor. Yum.

Keep turning the aluminum balls over and over in the fire, every minute or so. It usually takes about 10 minutes, but go ahead and pull them out and check them once in awhile until they are firm in the middle.


Then unwrap and eat with a spoon!
