Orange Peel Cake

                                The Recipe: Orange Peel Cakes

The Challenge: Bake cakes in the coals

The Scouts stirred up some batter. Then they cut a small “lid” in the top of each of six big navel oranges and scooped out the insides, just like carving a pumpkin.

Cooking a cake on coals is a snap when you use a hollowed-out orange peel instead of a pan. The Scouts ate the orange pulp, then poured the cake batter into the gutted oranges, each about two-thirds full.

They popped the “lids” back on the oranges, wrapped them in heavy foil, and set them on the coals for about 20 minutes, turning them often.
